Drift chamber tracks are required to satisfy the following: there must be at least 20 hits on each track; the first hit must be less than 68 cm from the beam line; a track must project within 6 cm of the interaction point along the beam line and within 3 cm transverse to the beam line; the transverse momentum of the track must be greater than 100 MeV/c; and the track fit per degree of freedom must be less than 10.

In the calorimeter, any energy deposition consistent with originating from background muons moving parallel to the SLC beam is discarded. Calorimeter energy clusters are then required to satisfy the following: a cluster must have at least 10 MeV in the first layer of the EM section and at least 20 MeV in the second EM layer; the total cluster energy must be at least 100 MeV; and more than one calorimeter layer must have energy deposited.

The visible energy, missing momentum, and jet masses in each event are calculated using charged tracks in the drift chamber and neutral clusters in the calorimeter. Neutral clusters are defined as those which have no track projecting within 3 mrad of any tower included in the cluster. The energy of a neutral cluster and the position of the energy-weighted centroid are used to calculate a momentum vector associated with the cluster. The ``missing momentum'' vector is defined as the vector sum of all charged track and neutral cluster momenta, while the visible energy is defined as the scalar sum of the magnitudes. The jet axis in each hemisphere is defined by the direction of the vector sum of momenta of tracks in the hemisphere. Neutral clusters within 15 degrees of these jet axes are included in the jets.

Note that the sign convention for the impact parameters in this method is not the same as that discussed in section IV.B. For details, see Ref. [15].

In Fig. 8, the entries along the horizontal axis (large acoplanarity and small impact parameter difference) come from radiative events; whereas, those along the vertical axis correspond to events that have undergone interactions (Bremsstrahlung in particular) away from the collision point.
