Title: Measurement of the B{sub d}{sup 0}{bar B}{sub d}{sup 0} oscillation frequency using dimuon data in p{bar p} collisions at {radical} (s) =1.8 TeV

Abstract

We present a measurement of the mass difference {Delta}m{sub d} of the two B{sub d}{sup 0} mass eigenstates. We use a flavor tagging method based on the lepton charge, in a sample of events with two muons at low transverse momentum. The sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 90 pb{sup {minus}1} collected by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. The result obtained is {Delta}m{sub d}=0.503{plus_minus}0.064(stat){plus_minus}0.071(syst) ps{sup {minus}1}. thinsp {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}
