Combined SLD Measurement of Ab at the Z0
Resonance using Various Techniques.*
The SLD Collaboration**
We present a new preliminary combination of measurements of the parity-violation
parameter Ab made by the SLD collaboration using various experimental techniques.
The techniques differ in detail, but in general a sample of bb events is selected or
enhanced by using the topologically reconstructed mass of the separated vertices formed
by decaying B hadrons. The direction of the b(b) quark is signed by one of four final
state tags: jet charge, vertex charge, leptons, or identified K, from the b vertex. We
account for statistical and systematic correlations between the four analyses to arrive
at our combined result: Ab = 0.905 0.017(stat) 0.020(syst).
