A Note on QCD Corrections to A_b(fb) Using Thrust to Determine the B-Quark Direction

Authors: Bodo Lampe

I discuss one-loop QCD corrections to the forward backward asymmetry of the bquark in a way appropriate to the present experimental procedure. I try to give insight into the structure of the corrections and elucidate some questions which have been raised by experimental experts. Furthermore, I complete and comment on results given in the literature.
