Title: Measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry in low-mass bottom-quark pairs produced in proton-antiproton collisions

Here, we report a measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry, AFB, in $$b\bar{b}$$ pairs produced in proton-antiproton collisions and identified by muons from semileptonic b-hadron decays. The event sample is collected at a center-of-mass energy of √s = 1.96 TeV with the CDF II detector and corresponds to 6.9 fb –1 of integrated luminosity. We obtain an integrated asymmetry of A FB($$b\bar{b}$$)=(1.2±0.7)% at the particle level for b-quark pairs with invariant mass, m $$b\bar{b}$$, down to 40 GeV/c 2 and measure the dependence of A FB($$b\bar{b}$$) on m $$b\bar{b}$$. The results are compatible with expectations from the standard model.

abstractNote = {Here, we report a measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry, AFB, in $b\bar{b}$ pairs produced in proton-antiproton collisions and identified by muons from semileptonic b-hadron decays. The event sample is collected at a center-of-mass energy of √s = 1.96 TeV with the CDF II detector and corresponds to 6.9 fb–1 of integrated luminosity. We obtain an integrated asymmetry of AFB($b\bar{b}$)=(1.2±0.7)% at the particle level for b-quark pairs with invariant mass, m$b\bar{b}$, down to 40 GeV/c2 and measure the dependence of AFB($b\bar{b}$) on m$b\bar{b}$. The results are compatible with expectations from the standard model.},
