Paper Abstract

The separation of jets originating from quarks and gluons in three-jet events at LEP by using a neural network program has been studied. The analysis has been done in two steps, one in which only the jet-energy is used for the identification and a second step in which jet fragmentation variables are used as well. A new training procedure of the neural network combined with a new normalization of the fragmentation variables gives a method of identifying gluon jets from their fragmentation properties without distorting the energy spectrum of the identified jets. Since the fragmentation process can only be studied with phenomenological models it is important that the identification procedure is to a large extent model independent and the study has been made with two different jet fragmentation models.
