A search for flavor changing neutral currents and lepton family number violation in neutral two-body charm decays

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This work presents a search for three rare/forbidden neutral charm decays, D{sup 0} {yields} {mu}e, D{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{mu}, and D{sup 0} {yields} ee. This study was based on data collected in Experiment E789 at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory using 800 GeV/c proton-gold interactions. Two statistical analyses are presented, one with background subtraction and the other without background subtraction. No evidence is found for any of the decays and the following upper limits are presented at the 90% confidence level.
