Morgan, Andrew Gordon (1994) Studies of final state photon radiation at LEP. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.
We consider two aspects of calculations involving the production of final state photons at LEP. The first addresses photons produced in association with hadrons. We motivate a measurement of the quark to photon fragmentation function and show how it can be used to account for isolated and non-isolated production rates. The second concerns the rare Z-decay to photons. We expose a subtle relationship between its various contributions. Following its investigation, we offer an improved method of calculation for weak processes at one loop.
