Description

The authors present a search for the decays B{sub d}{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup {minus}} and B{sub s}{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup {minus}} using 17.8 pb{sup {minus}1} of data collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) during 1992--1993 data taking period. They find no B{sub d}{sup 0} candidates in a mass window of [5.205, 5.355] GeV/c{sup 2} and 1 B{sub s}{sup 0} candidate in a mass window of [5.300, 5.450] GeV/c{sup 2}. Normalizing to the measured cross-section {sigma} (B{sup +}) = 2.39 {+-} 0.54 {micro}b for p{sub t}(B) > 6 GeV/c and {vert_bar}y(B){vert_bar} < 1 and assuming {sigma}(B{sup +}) ... continued below

These limits are significant improvements of previous measurements.
