Measurement of charm production in DIS with $D^{*}$ mesons and extraction of $F_{2}^{c\bar c}$.

Andrii Gizhko
Charm production has been measured with the ZEUS detector in deep inelastic ep scattering at HERA. The measurement is based on the full reconstruction of the decay chain \newline $D^{*}$ $\rightarrow$ $D^{0} $ $\pi$, $D^{0}$ $\rightarrow$ K $\pi$ and exploits the full HERA II statistics with integrated luminosity \textit{L} = 357 $\text{pb}^{-1}$ . Differential cross-sections have been measured. The kinematic range is 1.5 GeV $ < $ $P_{t}$(D*) $ < $ 20 \,GeV, $|\eta($D*$)|$ $...
