Measurement of the mass difference between top and antitop quarks


CDF Collaboration; et al; Canelli, F; Kilminster, B (2013). Measurement of the mass difference between top and antitop quarks. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 87(5):052013.

Abstract

We present a measurement of the mass difference between top (t) and antitop (t¯) quarks using tt¯ candidate events reconstructed in the final state with one lepton and multiple jets. We use the full data set of Tevatron s√=1.96  TeV proton-antiproton collisions recorded by the CDF II detector, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 8.7  fb−1. We estimate event by event the mass difference to construct templates for top pair signal events and background events. The resulting mass difference distribution in data compared to signal and background templates using a likelihood fit yields ΔMtop=Mt−Mt¯=−1.95±1.11(stat)±0.59(syst)  GeV/c2 and is in agreement with the standard model prediction of no mass difference.

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.
