Measurement of sin2{beta} from J/{psi} K{sub s} decays

Description: The CP-violating parameter sin 2{beta} is directly measured using 110 pb{sup {minus}1} of data accumulated with the CDF detector at the Fermilab {anti p}p Tevatron collider operating at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV. The signal consists of 395 {+-} 31 B{sub d}{sup 0} {r{underscore}arrow} J/{psi} K{sub s} events. Three tagging methods are used to identify the type of B meson at production (B{sub d}{sup 0} or {anti B}{sub d}{sup 0}). From the CP asymmetry, sin 2{beta} is measured to be 0.79 {sub {minus}0.44}{sup +0.41}, consistent with Standard Model predictions. Sin 2{beta} is in the interval 0 {lt} sin2{beta} {lt} 1 at the 93% confidence level.

Neutrino oscillation appearance experiment using nuclear emulsion and magnetized iron

Description: This report describes an apparatus that could be used to measure both the identity and charge of an outgoing lepton in a charged current neutrino interaction. This capability in a massive detector would allow the most comprehensive set of neutrino oscillation physics measurements. By measuring the six observable transitions between initial and final state neutrinos, one would be able to measure all elements of the neutrino mixing matrix, as well as search for CP violation, and matter effects. If the measured matrix is not unitary, then one would also have an unambiguous determination of sterile neutrinos. Emulsion is considered as the tracking medium, and different techniques are discussed for the application of a magnetic field.

CP violation and rare decays

Description: After a brief essay on the current state of particle physics and possible approaches to the opportunities that have presented themselves, the author summarizes the contributions to the Third Workshop on Physics and Detectors for DA{Phi}NE that deal with CP Violation and Rare Decays.
