Measurement of bb̄ production correlations, B00 mixing, and a limit on ∈B in pp̄ collisions at √s=1.8 TeV Academic Article uri icon


  • We present measurements of correlated bb̄ cross sections, μ-μ, correlations, the average B0B̄0 mixing parameter χ̄, and a limit on the CP-violating parameter ∈B. For these measurements, we use muon pairs from bb double semileptonic decays. The data used in this analysis were taken with the Collider_Detector at Fermilab and represent an integrated luminosity of 17.4±0.6 pb-1. The results concerning bb̄ production correlations are compared to predictions of next-to-leading order QCD computations.
