Measurement of b-hadron masses - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Abstract

Measurements of b-hadron masses are performed with the exclusive decay modes B+ -> J/psi K+, B0 -> J/psi K*0, B0 -> J/psi K0S, B0_s -> J/psi phi and Lambda_b -> J/psi Lambda using an integrated luminosity of 35 pb-1 collected in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV by the LHCb experiment. The momentum scale is calibrated with J/psi -> mu+mu- decays and verified to be known to a relative precision of 2 x 10^-4 using other two-body decays. The results are more precise than previous measurements, particularly in the case of the B0_s and Lambda_b masses.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
