Abstract

Differential cross sections for jet photoproduction in the reaction ep → e jet X have been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using 82.2 pb(-1) of integrated luminosity. Inclusive jet cross sections are presented as a function of the jet transverse energy, E-T(jet), for jets with E-T(jet) gt 17 GeV and pseudorapidity -1 lt eta(jet) lt 2.5, in the gammap centre-of-mass-energy range 142 lt Wgammap lt 293 GeV. Scaled jet invariant cross sections are presented as a function of the dimensionless variable x(T) equivalent to 2E(T)(jet)/W-gammap for (W-gammap) = 180 and 255 GeV: Next-to-leading-order QCD calculations give a good description of the measured differential cross sections in both magnitude and shape. The ratio of scaled jet invariant cross sections at the two (Wgammap) values shows clear non-scaling behaviour. A value for the strong coupling constant of alpha(s) (M-Z) = 0.1224 +/- 0.0001(stat.)(-0.0019)(+0.0022)(exp.)(-0.0042)(+0.0054)(th.) has been extracted from a QCD analysis of the measured dsigma/dE(T)(jet). The variation of sigma(s) with E-T(jet) is in good agreement with the running of sigma(s) as predicted by QCD.
