We make up-to-date QCD predictions for heavy flavor production in root S = 200 GeV pp collisions at RHIC. We also calculate the electron spectrum from heavy flavor decays to directly compare to the data. A rigorous benchmark, including the theoretical uncertainties, is established against which nuclear collision data can be compared to obtain evidence for dense matter effects.

Abstract

We make up-to-date QCD predictions for heavy flavor production in root S = 200 GeV pp collisions at RHIC. We also calculate the electron spectrum from heavy flavor decays to directly compare to the data. A rigorous benchmark, including the theoretical uncertainties, is established against which nuclear collision data can be compared to obtain evidence for dense matter effects.
