Cross section for b-jet production in supp¯p collisions at √s=1.8 TeV

D0 Collaboration

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Bottom-quark production in p¯p collisions at √s=1.8 TeV is studied with 5 pb−1 of data collected in 1995 by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The differential production cross section for b jets in the central rapidity region (|yb|<1) as a function of jet transverse energy is extracted from a muon-tagged jet sample. Within experimental and theoretical uncertainties, D0 results are found to be higher than, but compatible with, next-to-leading-order QCD predictions.
