  • The authors present the first observation of the baryon decay {Lambda}{sub b}{sup 0} {yields} {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} {pi}{sup -} followed by {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} {yields} pK{sup -} {pi}{sup +} in 106 pb{sup -1} p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV in the CDF experiment. IN order to reduce systematic error, the measured rate for {Lambda}{sub b}{sup 0} decay is normalized to the kinematically similar meson decay {bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D{sup +}{pi}{sup -} followed by D{sup +} {yields} {pi}{sup +}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}. They report the ratio of production cross sections ({sigma}) times the ratio of branching fractions ({Beta}) formore » the momentum region integrated above p{sub T} > 6 GeV/c and pseudorapidity range |{eta}| < 1.3: {sigma}(p{bar p} {yields} {Lambda}{sub b}{sup 0}X)/{sigma}(p{bar p} {yields} {bar B}{sup 0} X) x {Beta}({Lambda}{sub b}{sup 0} {yields} {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +}{pi}{sup -})/{Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D{sup +}{pi}{sup -}) = 0.82 {+-} 0.08(stat) {+-} 0.11(syst) {+-} 0.22 ({Beta}({Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} {yields} pK{sup -} {pi}{sup +})).« less
  • We calculate the next-to-leading QCD corrections to the effective Hamiltonian for {ital B}{r_arrow}{ital X}{sub {ital s}}{ital e}{sup +}{ital e}{sup {minus}} in the NDR and tHV schemes. We give for the first time analytic expressions for the Wilson coefficient of the operator {ital Q}{sub 9}=({ital {bar s}b}){sub {ital V}{minus}{ital A}}({ital {bar e}e}){sub {ital V}} in the NDR and HV schemes. Calculating the relevant matrix elements of local operators in the spectator model we demonstrate the scheme independence of the resulting short-distance contribution to the physical amplitude. Keeping consistently only leading and next-to-leading terms, we find an analytic formula for the differentialmore » dilepton invariant mass distribution in the spectator model. A numerical analysis of the {ital m}{sub {ital t}}, {Lambda}{sub M}{bar S}, and {mu}={ital O}({ital m}{sub {ital b}}) dependences of this formula is presented. We compare our results with those given in the literature.« less
  • We present a search for a standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a W boson using 2.7 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity of p{bar p} collision data taken at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. Limits on the Higgs boson production rate are obtained for masses between 100 GeV/c{sup 2} and 150 GeV/c{sup 2}. Through the use of multivariate techniques, the analysis achieves an observed (expected) 95% confidence level upper limit of 5.6 (4.8) times the theoretically expected production cross section for a standard model Higgs boson with a mass of 115 GeV/c{sup 2}.
  • We discuss nonperturbative contributions to the inclusive rare [ital B] decays [ital B][r arrow][ital X][sub [ital s]][gamma] and [ital B][r arrow][ital X][sub [ital s]l][sup +][ital l[minus]]. We employ an operator product expansion and the heavy quark effective theory to compute the leading corrections to the decay rate found in the free quark decay model, which is exact in the limit [ital m][sub [ital b]][r arrow][infinity]. These corrections are of relative order 1/[ital m][sub [ital b]][sup 2], and may be parametrized in terms of two low-energy parameters. We also discuss the corrections to other observables, such as the average photon energymore » in [ital B][r arrow][ital X][sub [ital s]][gamma] and the lepton invariant mass spectrum in [ital B][r arrow][ital X][sub [ital s]l][sup +][ital l[minus]].« less
