Abstract

Differential inclusive jet cross sections in neutral current deep inelastic ep scattering have been measured with the ZEUS detector using an integrated luminosity of 38.7 pb(-1). The jets have been identified Using the k(T) cluster algorithm in the longitudinally invariant inclusive mode in the laboratory frame; they have been selected with jet transverse energy, E(T)(Jet) above 6 GeV and jet pseudorapidity, eta(jet), between -1 and 3. Measurements of cross sections as functions of E(T)(jet), Bjorken x and the photon virtuality, Q(2), are presented. Three phase-space regions have been selected in order to study parton dynamics from the most global to the most restrictive region of forward-going (close to the proton-beam direction) jets at low x, where the effects of BFKL evolution might be present. The measurements have been compared to the predictions of leading-logarithm parton-shower Monte Carlo models and fixed-order perturbative QCD calculations. In the forward region, O(alpha(1)(s)) QCD calculations underestimate the data up to an order of magnitude at low x. An improved description of the data in this region is obtained by including O(Ce2) QCD corrections, which account for the lowest-order t-channel gluon-exchange diagrams, highlighting the importance of such terms in the parton dynamics at low x. s (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V.
