Title: Measurement of the Bs0 Lifetime in Fully and Partially Reconstructed Bs0 -> Ds- (phi pi-)X Decays in pp¯ Collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV

The authors present a measurement of the Bs0 lifetime in fully and partially reconstructed Bs0 = Ds0(φπ-)X decays in 1.3 fb-1 collected in pp¯ collisions at √s = 1.96 Tev by the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. They measure τ(Bs0) = 1.518 ± 0.041 (stat.) ± 0.027 (syst.) ps. The ratio of this result and the world average B0 lifetime yields τ(Bs0)/τ(B0) = 0.99 ± 0.03, which is in agreement with recent theoretical predictions.
