Abstract:Monte Carlo QCD branching together with a hadronization model is a powerful tool to study jets, both theoretically and phenomenologically. At the parton level, the properties of colorless clusters are investigated by a QCD branching method. By studying the mass distribution of the colorless clusters, their importance to phenomenology is examined. Using a cluster phase space model at the hadronization stage, the results of the Monte Carlo method can be compared with experimental data. Comparison of the data and the Monte Carlo results is carried out in the upsilon region. Agreement is generally obtained. Using similar methods, it is. also possible to predict the behaviors of jets in the toponium region. It turns out that heavy particle spectra are quite different for various decay modes of toponium.
