Tests of QCD in W and Z production at Tevatron

Description: We present measurements of the production cross sections times leptonic branching fractions and the transverse momentum distributions of W and Z bosons in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV using data collected with the DO detector at the Fermilab Tevatron p{bar p} collider. A preliminary measurement of the W charge asymmetry is also presented.

Search for anomalous WW and WZ production at D0

Description: We present a preliminary result from a search for anomalous WW and WZ production in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV using p{bar p} {yields} e{nu}jj events observed during the 1992-1993 run of the Fermilab Tevatron collider. A fit to the p{sub T} spectrum of W(e{nu}) yields direct limits on the CP-conserving anomalous WW{gamma} and WWZ coupling parameters of -0.89 < {Delta}{kappa} < 1.07 ({lambda} = 0) and -0.66 < {lambda} < 0.67 ({Delta}{kappa} = 0) at the 95% confidence level, assuming that the WWZ coupling parameters are equal to the WW{gamma} coupling parameters, and a form factor scale {Lambda} = 1.5 TeV.

Search for first and second generation leptoquarks at D0

Description: A search for first and second generation pair produced scalar leptoquarks has been done with the DO detector at Fermilab`s p{bar p} machine with {radical}s = 1.8 TeV. Leptoquarks are assumed to be strictly generational; for example, a first generation leptoquark couples only to the electron, its neutrino, and the u and d quarks. 95% C.L. mass limits of 133 GeV/c{sup 2} and 120 GeV/c{sup 2} for respective 100% and 50% decay branching ratios to electron plus quark for first generation scalar leptoquarks have been published. The preliminary results of a search for second generation scalar leptoquarks in the absence of a signal are mass limits of 111 GeV/c{sup 2} and 89 GeV/c{sup 2} for 100% and 50% decay branching ratios to muon plus quark. A feature of these mass limits is that they are independent of the unknown coupling of the leptoquark to leptons and quarks. The detection for e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} and e-p machines depends on the strength of this coupling.

Searches for new gauge bosons using the D0 detector

Description: We present the results of searches for additional gauge bosons beyond the W and Z bosons using the 1992-1993 Tevatron data set collected with the D0 detector. The signatures studied are W{prime} {yields} e{nu}, W{prime} {yields} {tau}{nu} with {tau} {yields} e{nu}{bar {nu}}, assuming stable neutrinos; W{sub R} {yields} e + X and W{sub R} {yields} eejj, assuming massive neutrinos; and Z{prime} {yields} ee. Lower limits on the W{prime} mass and Z{prime} mass at the 95% confidence level, and the mass exclusion contour in the W{sub R} mass vs. neutrino mass plane are presented.

Inclusive dimuon and b-quark production cross sections in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV

Description: We report on a preliminary measurement of the inclusive dimuon cross section in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV using the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. From these results, we extract the inclusive b-quark production cross section for the kinematic range {vert_bar}y{sup b}{vert_bar} < 1.0 and 9 GeV/c < p{sub T}{sup b min} < 25 GeV/c. The difference in azimuthal angle in the transverse plane for dimuon pairs from b{bar b} production is also shown.

Search for squarks and gluinos in p{bar p} collisions at the D0 detector

Description: A search for squarks and gluinos has been performed using the D0 detector at the {radical}s = 1.8 TeV Tevatron p{bar p} collider. Data from the 1992--1993 collider run corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 13.5 pb{sup {minus}1} were examined via the missing E{sub T} plus jets signature with two separate analyses. No events above Standard Model backgrounds were observed.
