Title: Evidence for Z c ± ( 3900 ) in semi-inclusive decays of b -flavored hadrons

Abstract

Here, we present evidence for the exotic charged charmoniumlike state Z ± c(3900) decaying to J/ψπ ± in semi-inclusive weak decays of b-flavored hadrons. The signal is correlated with a parent J/ψπ +π - system in the invariant-mass range 4.2–4.7 GeV that would include the exotic structure Y(4260). The study is based on 10.4 fb -1 of pp¯ collision data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider.

abstractNote = {Here, we present evidence for the exotic charged charmoniumlike state Z±c(3900) decaying to J/ψπ± in semi-inclusive weak decays of b-flavored hadrons. The signal is correlated with a parent J/ψπ+π- system in the invariant-mass range 4.2–4.7 GeV that would include the exotic structure Y(4260). The study is based on 10.4 fb-1 of pp¯ collision data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider.},
