Since the intrinsic kT leads to a harder pT -spectrum already for the color-singlet contributions, the color-octet OMEs turn out to be considerably smaller and in many cases even consistent with zero, as their values are not sufficiently constrained by the data.
Summary of the Heavy Flavor Working Group
In colorful language one says that the perturbation effect is of slightly deforming a nonresonant torus with given frequency spectrum (i.e. given ω0 ) on which the motion develops, without destroying it and keeping the quasi periodic motion on it with the same frequency spectrum.
