Detailed Description

An observable class for the forward-backward asymmetry in \(e^+ e^-\to Z\to b\bar{b}\) at the \(Z\) pole.

Author
HEPfit Collaboration

This class is used to compute the forward-backward asymmetry for the \(e^+ e^-\to Z\to b\bar{b}\) process at the \(Z\) pole in terms of the asymmetry parameters \(\mathcal{A}_f\), computed in the EW class:

\[ A_{\mathrm{FB}}^{0,b}=\frac 34 \mathcal{A}_e \mathcal{A}_b\,. \]
