b(b)  B  J/ + X

J/  m+m- ; e+e-

Measurement relative to direct J/ production

to minimize trigger/reconstruction uncertainties

R= relative efficiency1

  • B Selection:

    • Lepton impact to the wire

    • Distance of J/ to wire

B selection eff. from MC 30-45%

Summary

Summary

  • Good data quality

  • Several QCD related results expected

  • Preliminary results on most topics presented at conferences (>40)

  • 2 papers finished

    (BR(D0m+m-) (UL),pentaquark (UL))

  • Publication on advanced analyses in preparation

    (bb, U, D+/D0, f/K*, J/y, y(2S),...)

  • Other topics could lead to publication, manpower permitting

  • Analysis will continue until end 2005
