Abstract: We describe the Hybrid seeding, a standalone pattern recognition algorithm aiming at finding charged particle trajectories for the LHCb upgrade. A significant improvement to the charged particle reconstruction efficiency is accomplished by exploiting the knowledge of the LHCb magnetic field and the position of energy deposits in the scintillating fibre tracker detector. Moreover, we achieve a low fake rate and a small contribution to the overall timing budget of the LHCb realtime data processing.



ALEPH, D. E. L. P. H. I., L3 and OPAL Collaborations, LEP Electroweak Working Group(Schael, S. et al), Costa, M. J., Ferrer, A., Fuster, J., Garcia, C., Oyanguren, A., et al. (2013). Electroweak measurements in electron positron collisions at Wbosonpair energies at LEP. Phys. Rep., 532(4), 119–244.
Abstract: Electroweak measurements performed with data taken at the electron positron collider LEP at CERN from 1995 to 2000 are reported. The combined data set considered in this report corresponds to a total luminosity of about 3 fb(1) collected by the four LEP experiments ALEPH, DELPHI, 13 and OPAL, at centreofmass energies ranging from 130 GeV to 209 GeV. Combining the published results of the four LEP experiments, the measurements include total and differential crosssections in photonpair, fermionpair and fourfermion production, the latter resulting from both doubleresonant WW and ZZ production as well as singly resonant production. Total and differential crosssections are measured precisely, providing a stringent test of the Standard Model at centreofmass energies never explored before in electron positron collisions. Finalstate interaction effects in fourfermion production, such as those arising from colour reconnection and Bose Einstein correlations between the two W decay systems arising in WW production, are searched for and upper limits on the strength of possible effects are obtained. The data are used to determine fundamental properties of the W boson and the electroweak theory. Among others, the mass and width of the W boson, m(w) and Gamma(w), the branching fraction of W decays to hadrons, B(W > had), and the trilinear gaugeboson selfcouplings g(1)(Z), Kgamma and lambda(gamma), are determined to be: m(w) = 80.376 +/ 0.033 GeV Gamma(w) = 2.195 +/ 0.083 GeV B(W > had) = 67.41 +/ 0.27% g(1)(Z) = 0.984(0.020)(+0.018) Kgamma – 0.982 +/ 0.042 lambda(gamma) = 0.022 +/ 0.019.

Abstract: We report a measurement of the timedependent CP asymmetry of (B) over bar (0) > D(CP)((*))h(0) decays, where the light neutral hadron h(0) is a pi(0), eta , or omega meson, and the neutral D meson is reconstructed in the CP eigenstates K+K, KS(0)pi(0) or KS(0)omega. The measurement is performed combining the final data samples collected at the Upsilon(4S) resonance by the BABAR and Belle experiments at the asymmetricenergy B factories PEPII at SLAC and KEKB at KEK, respectively. The data samples contain (471 +/ 3) x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs recorded by the BABAR detector and (772 +/ 11) x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs recorded by the Belle detector. We measure the CP asymmetry parameters eta Sf = +0.66 +/ 0.10(stat) +/ 0.06(syst) and C = 0.02 +/ 0.07(stat) +/ 0.03(syst). These results correspond to the first observation of CP violation in (B) over bar (0) > D(CP)((*))h(0) decays. The hypothesis of no mixinginduced CP violation is excluded in these decays at the level of 5.4 standard deviations.

Abstract: We report measurements of sin 2 beta and cos 2 beta using a timedependent Dalitz plot analysis of B0 > D((*))h(0) with D > KS(0)pi(+)pi() decays, where the light unflavored and neutral hadron h(0) is a pi(0),eta, or omega meson. The analysis uses a combination of the final data sets of the BABAR and Belle experiments containing 471 x 10(6) and 772 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs collected at the gamma(4S) resonance at the asymmetricenergy B factories PEPII at SLAC and KEKB at KEK, respectively. We measure sin 2 beta = 0.80 +/ 0.14(stat) +/ 0.06(syst) +/ 0.03(model) and cos 2 beta = 0.91 +/ 0.22(stat) +/ 0.09(syst) +/ 0.07(model). The result for the direct measurement of the angle is beta = (22.5 +/ 4.4(stat) +/ 1.2(syst) +/ 0.6(model))degrees. The last quoted uncertainties are due to the composition of the D0 > KS(0)pi(+)pi() decay amplitude model, which is newly established by a Dalitz plot amplitude analysis of a highstatistics e(+) e() > c (c) over bar data sample as part of this analysis. We find the first evidence for cos 2 beta > 0 at the level of 3.7 standard deviations. The measurement excludes the trigonometric multifold solution pi/2 – beta = (68.1 +/ 0.7)degrees at the level of 7.3 standard deviations and therefore resolves an ambiguity in the determination of the apex of the CKM Unitarity Triangle. The hypothesis of beta = 0 degrees is ruled out at the level of 5.1 standard deviations, and thus CP violation is observed in B0 > D(*) h(0) decays. The measurement assumes no direct CP violation in B0 > D(*) h(0) decays.

Abstract: We present first evidence that the cosine of the CPviolating weak phase 2 beta is positive, and hence exclude trigonometric multifold solutions of the CabibboKobayashiMaskawa (CKM) Unitarity Triangle using a timedependent Dalitz plot analysis of B0 > D(*) h(0) with D > KS(0)pi(+)pi() decays, where h(0) is an element of {pi(0), eta, omega} denotes a light unflavored and neutral hadron. The measurement is performed combining the final data sets of the BABAR and Belle experiments collected at the (sic)(4S) resonance at the asymmetricenergy B factories PEPII at SLAC and KEKB at KEK, respectively. The data samples contain (471 +/ 3) x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs recorded by the BABAR detector and (772 +/ 11) x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs recorded by the Belle detector. The results of the measurement are sin 2 beta = 0.80 +/ 0.14 (stat) +/ 0.06 (syst) +/ 0.03 (model) and cos 2 beta = 0.91 +/ 0.22(stat) +/ 0.09 (syst) +/ 0.07(model). The result for the direct measurement of the angle beta of the CKM Unitarity Triangle is beta = [22.5 +/ 4.4 (stat) +/ 1.2 (syst) +/ 0.6(model)]degrees. The measurement assumes no direct CP violation in B0 > D(*) h(0) decays. The quoted model uncertainties are due to the composition of the D0 > KS(0)pi(+)pi() decay amplitude model, which is newly established by performing a Dalitz plot amplitude analysis using a highstatistics e(+)e() > c (c) over bar data sample. CP violation is observed in B0 > D(*) h(0) decays at the level of 5.1 standard deviations. The significance for cos 2 beta > 0 is 3.7 standard deviations. The trigonometric multifold solution pi/2 – beta = (68.1 +/ 0.7)degrees is excluded at the level of 7.3 standard deviations. The measurement resolves an ambiguity in the determination of the apex of the CKM Unitarity Triangle.

Abstract: In a sample of 467 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP II collider at SLAC we have observed the decay (B) over bar (0) > Lambda(+)(c)(p) over bar pi(0) and measured the branching fraction to be (1.94 +/ 0.17 +/ 0.14 +/ 0.50 x 10(4), where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic, and the uncertainty on the Lambda(+)(c) > pK()pi(+) branching fraction, respectively. We determine an upper limit of 1.5 x 10(6) at 90% C.L. for the product branching fraction B((B) over bar (0) > Sigma(+)(c) (2455)(p) over bar) x B(Lambda(+)(c) > pK() pi(+)). Furthermore, we observe an enhancement at the threshold of the invariant mass of the baryon antibaryon pair.

Abstract: We present a study of 649 +/ 35 e(+)e() > c (c) over bar events produced at root s approximate to 10.6 GeV containing both Lambda(+)(c) baryon and a (Lambda) over bar ()(c) antibaryon. The number observed is roughly 4 times that expected if the leading charmed hadron types are uncorrelated, confirming an observation by the CLEO Collaboration. We find a 2jet topology in these events but very few additional baryons, demonstrating that the primary c and (c) over bar are predominantly contained in a correlated baryonantibaryon system. In addition to the charmed baryons we observe on average 2.6 +/ 0.2 charged intermediate mesons, predominantly pions, carrying 65% of the remaining energy.

Abstract: A search for the Z(3930) resonance in gamma gamma production of the D (D) over bar system has been performed using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 384 fb(1) recorded by the BABAR experiment at the PEPII asymmetricenergy electronpositron collider. The D (D) over bar invariant mass distribution shows clear evidence of the Z(3930) state with a significance of 5.8 sigma. We determine mass and width values of (3926.7 +/ 2.7 +/ 1.1) MeV/c(2) and (21.3 +/ 6.8 +/ 3.6) MeV, respectively. A decay angular analysis provides evidence that the Z(3930) is a tensor state with positive parity and C parity (J(PC) = 2(++)); therefore we identify the Z(3930) state as the chi(c2)(2P) meson. The value of the partial width Gamma(gamma gamma) x B(Z(3930) > D (D) over bar) is found to be (0.24 +/ 0.05 +/ 0.04) keV.

Abstract: We present a search for the decay B+ > l(+)nu(l) (l = tau, mu, or e) in (458.9 +/ 5.1) x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs recorded with the BABAR detector at the PEPII Bfactory. We search for these B decays in a sample of B+B events where one B meson is reconstructed as B > D(0)l()(nu) over barX. Using the method of Feldman and Cousins, we obtain B(B+ > tau(+)nu(tau)) = (1.7 +/ 0.8 +/ 0.2) x 10(4), which excludes zero at 2.3 sigma. We interpret the central value in the context of the standard model and find the B meson decay constant to be f(B)(2) = (62 +/ 31) x 10(3) MeV2. We find no evidence for B+ > e(+)nu(e) and B+ > mu(+)nu(mu) and set upper limits at the 90% C. L. B(B+ > e(+)nu(e)) < 0.8 x 10(5) and B(B+ > mu(+)nu(mu)) < 1.1 x 10(5).
