Measurement of bottom quark production in 1.8 TeV pp¯ collisions using muons from b-quark decays Academic Article uri icon


  • We present a measurement of the b-quark cross section in 1.8 TeV p-p̄ collisions recorded with the Collider Detector at Fermilab using muonic b-quark decays. In the central rapidity region (yb1.0), the cross section is 295±21±75 nb (59±14±15 nb) for pTb>21 GeV/c (29 GeV/c). Comparisons are made to previous measurements and next-to-leading order QCD calculations. © 1993 The American Physical Society.
