Abstract

We present the results of the tree-level calculation of inclusive two-hadron production in electron-positron annihilation via one photon up to subleading order in 1/Q. We consider the situation where the two hadrons belong to different, back-to-back jets. We include polarization of the produced hadrons and discuss azimuthal dependences of asymmetries. New asymmetries are found, in particular there is a leading cos(2 phi) asymmetry, which is even present when hadron polarization is absent, since it arises solely due to the intrinsic transverse momenta of the quarks.
