Title: Measurement of the B+ production cross-section in p anti-p collisions at s**(1/2) = 1960-GeV

Abstract

The authors present a new measurement of the B{sup +} meson differential cross section d{sigma}/dP{sub T} at {radical}s = 1960 GeV. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 739 pb{sup -1} collected with the upgraded CDF detector (CDF II) at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. B{sup +} candidates are reconstructed through the decay B{sup +} {yields} J/{psi} K{sup +}, with J/{psi} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}. The integrated cross section for producing B{sup +} mesons with p{sub T} {ge} 6 GeV/c and |y| {le} 1 is measured to be 2.78 {+-} 0.24 {mu}b.
