Small angle muon and b-quark production in p pbar collisions at squareroot s = 1.8 TeV

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We report on a measurement of small angle muon production (2.4 < {vert_bar}{ital y}{sup {mu}}{vert_bar} < 3.2) in {ital p}{ital {anti p}} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV with the D{null} detector at Fermilab. We have determined the fraction of the inclusive {mu} cross section in this region due to {ital b}-quark production and decay. Combining this measurement with our previously measured cross section in the central region, we calculate {ital d}{sigma}/{ital dy} for muons from {ital b} decay with {ital p}{sup {mu}}{sub T} > 5 GeV/c and {ital p}{sup {mu}}{sub T} > 8 GeV/c. These measurements are compared to ... continued below
