We present the results of a full calculation of the QCD O(αS2αem) radiative corrections to the heavy-quark photoproduction cross section. Explicit formulae are given for the total cross section for the photoproduction of a heavy-quark pair due to photon-parton fusion.

Within the large theoretical uncertainties the calculated charm photoproduction cross section is in reasonable agreement with present data.

Abstract

We present the results of a full calculation of the QCD O(αS2αem) radiative corrections to the heavy-quark photoproduction cross section. Explicit formulae are given for the total cross section for the photoproduction of a heavy-quark pair due to photon-parton fusion. Using our results we present estimates of the differential and total cross-section for the photoproduction of charm. Within the large theoretical uncertainties the calculated charm photoproduction cross section is in reasonable agreement with present data. We show that the cross section for the photoproduction of bottom is reliably calculable. © 1989.
