Title: Measurement of the Absolute Branching Fraction of the Inclusive Semileptonic Λ c + Decay

Abstract

Using a data sample of $${e}^{+}{e}^{{-}}$$ collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $$567\text{ }\text{ }{\mathrm{pb}}^{{-}1}$$ collected at a center-of-mass energy of $$\sqrt{s}=4.6\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{GeV}$$ with the BESIII detector, we measure the absolute branching fraction of the inclusive semileptonic $${\mathrm{{\Lambda}}}_{c}^{+}$$ decay with a double-tag method. We obtain $$\mathcal{B}({\mathrm{{\Lambda}}}_{c}^{+}{\rightarrow}X{e}^{+}{{\nu}}_{e})=(3.95\pm{}0.34\pm{}0.09)%$$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. Using the known $${\mathrm{{\Lambda}}}_{c}^{+}$$ lifetime and the charge-averaged semileptonic decay width of nonstrange charmed mesons ($${D}^{0}$$ and $${D}^{+}$$), we obtain the ratio of the inclusive semileptonic decay widths $$\mathrm{{\Gamma}}({\mathrm{{\Lambda}}}_{c}^{+}{\rightarrow}X{e}^{+}{{\nu}}_{e})/\overline{\mathrm{{\Gamma}}}(D{\rightarrow}X{e}^{+}{{\nu}}_{e})=1.26\pm{}0.12$$.

abstractNote = {Using a data sample of ${e}^{+}{e}^{{-}}$ collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $567\text{ }\text{ }{\mathrm{pb}}^{{-}1}$ collected at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=4.6\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{GeV}$ with the BESIII detector, we measure the absolute branching fraction of the inclusive semileptonic ${\mathrm{{\Lambda}}}_{c}^{+}$ decay with a double-tag method. We obtain $\mathcal{B}({\mathrm{{\Lambda}}}_{c}^{+}{\rightarrow}X{e}^{+}{{\nu}}_{e})=(3.95\pm{}0.34\pm{}0.09)%$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. Using the known ${\mathrm{{\Lambda}}}_{c}^{+}$ lifetime and the charge-averaged semileptonic decay width of nonstrange charmed mesons (${D}^{0}$ and ${D}^{+}$), we obtain the ratio of the inclusive semileptonic decay widths $\mathrm{{\Gamma}}({\mathrm{{\Lambda}}}_{c}^{+}{\rightarrow}X{e}^{+}{{\nu}}_{e})/\overline{\mathrm{{\Gamma}}}(D{\rightarrow}X{e}^{+}{{\nu}}_{e})=1.26\pm{}0.12$.},
