  • Measurement of the t-channel single top quark production cross section
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Physics Letters B. - 0370-2693 .- 1873-2445. ; 682:4-5, s. 363-369

    • <p>The DO Collaboration reports direct evidence for electroweak production of single top quarks through the t-channel exchange of a virtual W boson. This is the first analysis to isolate an individual single top quark production channel. We select events containing an isolated electron or muon, missing transverse energy, and two, three or four jets from 2.3 fb(-1) of p (p) over bar collisions at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. One or two of the jets are identified as containing a b hadron. We combine three multivariate techniques optimized for the t-channel process to measure the t- and s-channel cross sections simultaneously. We measure cross sections of 3.14(-0.80)(+0.94) pb for the t-channel and 1.05 +/- 0.81 pb for the s-channel. The measured t-channel result is found to have a significance of 4.8 standard deviations and is consistent with the standard model prediction.</p>

  • Determination of the strong coupling constant from the inclusive jet cross section in pp collisions at s=1.96 TeV
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: PHYS REV D. - 1550-7998. ; 80:11, s. 111107
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>We determine the strong coupling constant alpha(s) and its energy dependence from the p(T) dependence of the inclusive jet cross section in pp collisions at s=1.96 TeV. The strong coupling constant is determined over the transverse momentum range 50 &lt; p(T)&lt; 145 GeV. Using perturbative QCD calculations to order O(alpha(3)(s)) combined with O(alpha(4)(s)) contributions from threshold corrections, we obtain alpha(s)(M-Z)=0.1161(-0.0048)(+0.0041). This is the most precise result obtained at a hadron-hadron collider.</p>

  • Measurement of the normalized Z/gamma* -&gt; mu(+)mu(-) transverse momentum distribution in p(p)over-bar collisions at root s=1.96 TeV
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Physics Letters B. - 0370-2693 .- 1873-2445. ; 693:5, s. 522-530
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>We present a new measurement of the Z/gamma* transverse momentum distribution in the range 0-330 GeV, in proton-antiproton collisions at root s = 1.96 TeV. The measurement uses 0.97 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity recorded by the D0 experiment and is the first using the Z/gamma* -&gt; mu(+)mu(-) + X channel at this center-of-mass energy. This is also the first measurement of the Z/gamma* transverse momentum distribution that presents the result at the level of particles entering the detector, minimizing dependence on theoretical models. As any momentum of the Z/gamma* in the plane transverse to the incoming beams must be balanced by some recoiling system, primarily the result of QCD radiation in the initial state, this variable is an excellent probe of the underlying process. Tests of the predictions of QCD calculations and current event generators show they have varied success in describing the data. Using this measurement as an input to theoretical predictions will allow for a better description of hadron collider data and hence it will increase experimental sensitivity to rare signals.

  • Measurement of the t(t)over-bar cross section using high-multiplicity jet events
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Physical Review D. - 1550-7998. ; 82:3, s. 032002
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>We present a measurement of the t (t) over bar cross section using high-multiplicity jet events produced in p (p) over bar collisions at root s = 1.96 TeV. These data were recorded at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider with the D0 detector. Events with at least six jets, two of them identified as b jets, were selected from a 1 fb(-1) data set. The measured cross section, assuming a top quark mass of 175 GeV/c(2), is 6.9 +/- 2.0 pb, in agreement with theoretical expectations.</p>

  • Measurement of the WZ -&gt; lvll cross section and limits on anomalous triple gauge couplings in p(p)over-bar collisions at root s=1.96 TeV
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Physics Letters B. - 0370-2693 .- 1873-2445. ; 695:1-4, s. 67-73
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>We present a new measurement of the WZ -&gt; lvll (l = e, mu) cross section and limits on anomalous triple gauge couplings. Using 4.1 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity of p (p) over bar collisions at root s = 1.96 TeV, we observe 34 WZ candidate events with an estimated background of 6.0 +/- 0.4 events. We measure the WZ production cross section to be 3.89(-0.90)(+1.07) pb, in good agreement with the standard model prediction. We find no evidence for anomalous WWZ couplings and set 95% C.L. limits on the coupling parameters, -0.077 &lt; lambda(z) &lt; 0.093 and -0.029 &lt; Delta kappa(z) &lt; 0.080 in the HISZ parameterization for a Lambda = 2 TeV form factor scale. These are the best limits to date obtained from the direct measurement of the WWZ vertex.</p>

  • Measurement of Z/gamma* plus jet plus X angular distributions in p(p)over-bar collisions at root s=1.96 TeV
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Physics Letters B. - 0370-2693 .- 1873-2445. ; 682:4-5, s. 370-380
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>We present the first measurements at a hadron collider of differential cross sections for Z/gamma* + jet + X production in Delta phi(Z. jet), vertical bar Delta y(Z, jet)vertical bar and vertical bar y(boost)(Z + jet)vertical bar. Vector boson production in association with jets is an excellent probe of QCD and constitutes the main background to many small cross section processes, such as associated Higgs production. These measurements are crucial tests of the predictions of perturbative QCD and current event generators, which have varied success in describing the data. Using these measurements as inputs in tuning event generators will increase the experimental sensitivity to rare signals.</p>

  • Search for a Resonance Decaying into WZ Boson Pairs in p(p)over-bar Collisions
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Physical Review Letters. - 0031-9007 .- 1079-7114. ; 104:6, s. 061801
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>We present the first search for an electrically charged resonance W' decaying to a WZ boson pair using 4.1 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron p (p) over bar collider. The WZ pairs are reconstructed through their decays into three charged leptons (l = e, mu). A total of 9 data events is observed in good agreement with the background prediction. We set 95% C.L. limits on the W'WZ coupling and on the W' production cross section multiplied by the branching fractions. We also exclude W' masses between 188 and 520 GeV within a simple extension of the standard model and set the most restrictive limits to date on low-scale technicolor models.</p>

  • Search for charged Higgs bosons in top quark decays
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Physics Letters B. - 0370-2693 .- 1873-2445. ; 682:3, s. 278-286

    • <p>We present a search for charged Higgs bosons in top quark decays. We analyze the e + jets, mu + jets, ee, e mu, mu mu, tau e and tau mu final states from top quark pair production events, using data from about 1 fb (1) of integrated luminosity recorded by the DO experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. We consider different scenarios of possible charged Higgs boson decays, one where the charged Higgs boson decays purely hadronically into a charm and a strange quark, another where it decays into a tau lepton and a tau neutrino and a third one where both decays appear. We extract limits on the branching ratio B(t -&gt; H(+)b) for all these models. We use two methods, one where the t (t) over bar production cross section is fixed, and one where the cross section is fitted simultaneously with B(t -&gt; H(+)b). Based on the extracted limits, we exclude regions in the charged Higgs boson mass and tan beta parameter space for different scenarios of the minimal supersymmetric standard model.</p>

  • Search for single top quarks in the tau plus jets channel using 4.8 fb(-1) of p(p)over-bar collision data
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Physics Letters B. - 0370-2693 .- 1873-2445. ; 690:1, s. 5-14
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>We present the first direct search for single top quark production using reconstructed tau leptons in the final state. The search is based on 4.8 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity collected in p (p) over bar collisions at root s= 1.96 TeV with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. We select events with a final state including an isolated tau lepton. missing transverse energy, two or three jets, one or two of them being identified as b quark jet. We use a multivariate technique to discriminate signal from background. The number of events observed in data in this final state is consistent with the signal plus background expectation. We set in the tau + jets channel an upper limit on the single top quark cross section of 7.3 pb at the 95% C.L. This measurement allows a gain of 4% in expected sensitivity for the observation of single top production when combining it with electron + jets and muon + jets channels already published by the DO Collaboration with 2.3 fb(-1) of data. We measure a combined cross section of 3.84(-0.83)(+0.89) pb, which is the most precise measurement to date.</p>

  • Search for the Associated Production of a b Quark and a Neutral Supersymmetric Higgs Boson that Decays into tau Pairs
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Physical Review Letters. - 0031-9007 .- 1079-7114. ; 104:15, s. 151801
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>We report results from a search for production of a neutral Higgs boson in association with a b quark. We search for Higgs decays to tau pairs with one tau subsequently decaying to a muon and the other to hadrons. The data correspond to 2: 7 fb(-1) of p (p) over bar collisions recorded by the D0 detector at.. root s = 1.96 TeV. The data are found to be consistent with background predictions. The result allows us to exclude a significant region of parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric model.</p>
