In science:

The dominant source of correlation is again through uncertainties in the fragmentation and decay models from the hQFB i and the Ab¯b used.
A Combination of Preliminary Electroweak Measurements and Constraints on the Standard Model
This leads to only a small change in the relative weights for the Ab¯b FB and hQFB i results when averaging their sin2 θ lept eff values (Section 12.4).
A Combination of Preliminary Electroweak Measurements and Constraints on the Standard Model
Furthermore, the jet charge method contributes at most half of the weight of the Ab¯b FB measurement.
A Combination of Preliminary Electroweak Measurements and Constraints on the Standard Model
Thus, the correlation between hQFB i and Ab¯b FB from jet charge will have little impact on the overall Standard Model fit, and is neglected at present.
A Combination of Preliminary Electroweak Measurements and Constraints on the Standard Model
Namely if the parent separates the offsprings: A σ→ BAB (2-BARW2s) the steady state density will be higher than in the case when they are created on the same site: A σ→ ABB (2-BARW2a) for a given branching rate because in the former case they are unable to annihilate with each other.

Updates with respect to summer 2000: ALEPH has updated their Abb FB jet-charge measurement using a neural net charge tag DELPHI has presented new measurements of Abb FB using a neural net charge tag SLD has updated Rc and most Ab and Ac measurements.

There is also some correlation between these results and those for Abb FB using jet charges.

This leads to only a small change in the FB and hQFB i results when averaging their sin2 θ lept relative weights for the Abb eff values (Section 12.3).

The averaged discrepancies with respect to the Standard Model predictions is -2.08 σ for Rb , +0.30 σ for Rc , -1.56 σ for Abb FB and -0.24 σ for Acc FB . A list of the error contributions from the combination at 189 GeV is shown in Table 8.11.
