Abstract

The dijet cross section in photoproduction has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 38.6 pb/sup -1/. The events were required to have a virtuality of the incoming photon, Q/sup 2/, of less than 1 GeV/sup 2/ and a photon-proton centre-of-mass energy in the range 134 lt W/sub gamma p/ lt 277 GeV. Each event contains at least two jets satisfying transverse-energy requirements of E/sub T//sup jet1/ gt 14 Gev and E/sub T//sup jet2/ gt 11 GeV and pseudorapidity requirements of -1 eta /sup jet1,2/ lt 2.4. The measurements are compared to next-to-leading-order QCD predictions. The data show particular sensitivity to the density of partons in the photon, allowing the validity of the current parameterisations to be tested.
