Abstract

We report the first precision measurements of the scaled momentum, the charge multiplicity, and the thrust of hadronic jets in the Breit frame in Deep Inelastic Scattering vμN and v̄μN charged current events over the Q2 range from 1 to 100 GeV2. The neutrino data, obtained in the NOMAD experiment at the CERN SPS, extend the Q2-evolution of these parameters by two orders of magnitude, and with commensurate precision, when compared to those reported by the ep and e+ e- experiments.
