Born final state definition

  1. Jun 1, 2012 #1
    I've been doing a lot of readings on NLO calculations for high energy physics, and several papers I have read mention "Born final state" particles, "Born level" processes/trees/diagrams etc. None of them seem to define them, however, and my searches on the Google and in textbooks have been largely inconclusive.

    Does this refer to the Born approximation in scattering theory, and if so, how does one tell if a final state particle is a Born particle? If anyone could help define this or point me towards a good resource about it that would be greatly appreciated.
