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


CDF Collaboration; et al; Canelli, F; Kilminster, B (2016). Measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry in low-mass bottom-quark pairs produced in proton-antiproton collisions. Physical review. D:112003.

Abstract

We report a measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry, AFB, in bb¯ 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(bb¯)=(1.2±0.7)% at the particle level for b-quark pairs with invariant mass, mbb¯, down to 40  GeV/c2 and measure the dependence of AFB(bb¯) on mbb¯. The results are compatible with expectations from the standard model.
