Physics at the Z pole with SLD

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The authors review recent results from a wide physics program in polarized e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} interactions at the SLC performed by the SLD experiment. Unique and precise measurements of the electroweak parameters A{sub e}, A{sub b}, A{sub c}, and R{sub b} provide valuable constraints on the Standard Model. The excellent 3-D vertexing capabilities of SLD are further exploited to extract precise B{sup +} and B{sub d}{sup 0} lifetimes, as well as measurements of the time evolution of B{sub d}{sup 0} - ({anti B}{sub d}{sup 0}) mixing. Finally, the unique capabilities of the SLC/SLD are used to test QCD in new ... continued below

Finally, the unique capabilities of the SLC/SLD are used to test QCD in new ways. The authors present results on general properties of particle production in light, c, and b quark events, as well as the first observation of leading particle production in light-quark hemispheres.
