abstract

  • We present a search for the flavor-changing neutral current decay [Formula Presented] in [Formula Presented] collisions at [Formula Presented] using [Formula Presented] of data collected at the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF). We find two candidate events for this decay, which are consistent with the background estimate of one event, and set an upper limit on the branching fraction of [Formula Presented] at a 95% confidence level. This is the first limit on the branching fraction of this decay. © 2002 The American Physical Society.
