Top production at D0

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We report an updated measurement of the top quark production cross section in {ital p}{ital {anti p}} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV by the D{null} experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron. We also present a measurement of the top quark mass. The data set used for these measurements corresponds to approximately 100 pb{sup -1}, almost the entire data sample collected by the D{null} experiment during the Run I of the Fermilab Tevatron. We observe 37 events with an expected background of 13.4{+-}3.0 events. We measure the mass of the top quark to be 170{+-}15({ital stat}){+-}10({ital syst.}) GeV/c{sup 2}.
