We have studied the energy-energy correlation in e[superscript]+e[superscript]- annihilation into hadrons at √s = 29 GeV using the TPC/2[gamma] Detector Facility at PEP. We found that [alpha][subscript]s = 0.161 ±.004 ±.011 for the average hadronic event sample using GKS matrix elements and LUND symmetric string fragmentation.
