## The BZ angle in e+ e- -> 4jets: abelian vs non-abelian

Use MadGraph/MadEvent to produce two event samples, one for standard QCD and one with an abelian QCD model for

Run the collision on the peak of the Z boson and set a minimum invariant mass for the jets of GeV. Plot the Bengtsson-Zerwas angle between the planes identified by the two lowest and to highest energy jets:

%$\cos \chi_{BZ} = \frac{( {\bf p}1\times {\bf p}2) \cdot ({\bf p}3\times {\bf p}4)} {  {\bf p}1 \times {\bf p}2 {\bf p}3\times {\bf p}4 }\,.$%

Comparison should be made with the plots of Ref. hep-ph/9503354, where various implementation of the abelian models are discussed. Our web implementation include the emission of abelian gluons as possible partons leading to jets.
