Abstract

Heavy quark production in 7 TeV centre-of-mass energy pp collisions at the LHC is not necessarily flavour symmetric. The production asymmetry, AP, between View the MathML source and View the MathML source mesons is studied using the ϕπ± decay mode in a data sample of 1.0 fb−1 collected with the LHCb detector. The difference between π+ and π− detection efficiencies is determined using the ratios of fully reconstructed to partially reconstructed D⁎± decays. The overall production asymmetry in the View the MathML source rapidity region 2.0 to 4.5 with transverse momentum larger than 2 GeV is measured to be AP=(−0.33±0.22±0.10)%. This result can constrain models of heavy flavour production.
