Next-to-leading order calculation of the color-octet 3S1 gluon fragmentation function for heavy quarkonium

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Next-to-leading order corrections to fragmentation functions in a light-cone gauge are discussed. This gauge simplifies the calculation by eliminating many Feynman diagrams at the expense of introducing spurious poles in loop integrals. As an application, the short-distance coefficients for the color-octet 3S1 term in the fragmentation function for a gluon to split into polarized heavy quarkonium states are re-calculated to order αs 2. We show that the ill-defined spurious poles cancel and the appropriate prescriptions for the remaining spurious poles can be determined by calculating a subset of the diagrams in the Feynman gauge. Our answer agrees with the recent calculation of Braaten and Lee in the Feynman gauge, but disagrees with another previous calculation.
