Comparison of deep inelastic electron photon scattering data with the HERWIG and PHOJET Monte Carlo models

Abstract : Deep inelastic electron-photon scattering is studied in the $Q^2$ range from 1.2 to 30 GeV$^2$ using the LEP1 data taken with the ALEPH, L3 and OPAL detectors at centre-of-mass energies close to the mass of the Z boson. Distributions of the measured hadronic final state are corrected to the hadron level and compared to the predictions of the HERWIG and PHOJET Monte Carlo models. For large regions in most of the distributions studied the results of the different experiments agree with one another. However, significant differences are found between the data and the models. Therefore the combined LEP data serve as an important input to improve on the Monte Carlo models.
