Precise measurement of B-0-(B-0)over-bar mixing parameters at the Epsilon(4S) Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We describe a measurement of B0 - B0 mixing parameters exploiting a method of partial reconstruction of the decay chains B D(* )() and B D(* ) (). Using 9.6 x 106BB pairs collected at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, we find (d) = 0.198 0.013 0.014, |y(d)| < 0.40 at 95% confidence level, and |(R) e((B)| < 0.034 at 95% confidence level.
