Measurement of correlatedbbproduction inppcollisions ats=1960GeV Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We present a measurement of the correlated bb production cross section. The data used in this analysis were taken with the upgraded CDF detector (CDF II) at the Fermilab Tevatron collider, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 742pb-1. We utilize muon pairs with invariant mass 5m80GeV/c2 produced by bb double semileptonic decays. For muons with pT 3GeV/c and ||0.7, that are produced by b and b quarks with pT 2GeV/c and |y|1.3, we measure b, b=1549133pb. We compare this result with theoretical predictions and previous measurements. We also report the measurement of c,c, a by-product of the study of the background to bb production. 2008 The American Physical Society.
