Title: An analysis of monojet data in p$$\bar{p}$$ collisions at √s = 1.8 TEV

Abstract

An analysis is presented of events with a single jet and significant missing transverse energy selected from 4.7 pb -1 of data collected at the Fermilab Tevatron with the CDF detector. The goal is to identify events of the type p$$\bar{p}$$ → Z 0 + jet; Z 0 → v$$\bar{v}$$. Event selection and backgrounds are discussed. The number of observed monojet events is compared to the number of observed Z 0 → e ± events in which the Z 0 is accompanied by a jet. We measure the number of light neutrino species to be N v = 2.2±1.5 and we place an upper limit on the number of neutrino species at N v < 5 (90% C.L.).
