Selection of the B Candidate

Two quantities M(B) and E

are defined as,

E vs. M(B)

Signal MC

where Ebeam = 5.29 GeV,

Pi- mom. of B, Ei-energy of B

Signal Region,

–0.05 < E < 0.05 GeV for h {, K}

–0.10 < E < 0.05 GeV for h {0}

5.27 < M(B) < 5.29 GeV/c2

Largest background source is e+e-→ qq (q{u,d,s,c}) events

Fisher Discriminant is a powerful tool to discriminate signal and background

Background Suppression – Fisher Discriminant (FD)

- A linear combination of 9 variables
- Optimized to discriminate signal from background

- Cos(θth) – Angle between thrust axis of the B candidate
- and the thrust axis of the remaining particles.
- Cos(B) – Angle between the B momentum & beam axis
- qr x (QD) – qr contains flavor information of the other B;
- q = ±1; 0<r<1; QD – charge of Ds

Where is a unit vector s. t. it maximizes T

is the mom. of the ith particle in CM frame

N - inclusive Ds* yield ; - efficiency ;

Reconstruction Efficiencies

- First used Sig. MC – fitting M(B)
- Observed inconsistency among the yields of DS sub modes
- Minimized MC dependence by using inclusive M
- Efficiency for mode obtained using sig. MC
- Total eff. obtained by multiplying by eff. of the other cuts

Following relationships can be obtained

Sideband Study

- Sidebands of Ds and M used
- 3 from lower and upper side of the signal region
- used to compare data and MC
- Background shapes were obtained

Observations:

- Bkg. shapes of data and MC agree each other
- Observed a disagreement in bkg. levels ~12% – 22%
- Bkg. of Ds not random – real Ds but not from Ds*→Ds

Simultaneous Fitting

- Simultaneous fitting of 3 DS sub decay modes
- Common branching fraction for all 3 DS sub-decay modes
M-1D

- Signal - Gaussian shape with mean & fixed to sig. MC shape
- Bkg. - linear shape, by fitting data excluding the signal region
E-1D

- Signal - Gaussian shape with mean & fixed to sig. MC shape
- Bkg. - sideband shapes of M

Lmax - max. likelihood

L(0) – max. likelihood if

signal is zero

D. Becirevic, Nucl. Phys. Proc. Suppl. 94, 337 (2001)

- good agreement with the expected result which is ~0.02

Estimation of Vub

-Good agreement with the world average for

|Vub| which is (3.67±0.47)x10-3

- Used 278.4 million events
- M fits give more consistent results
- Both M and E results agree within errors
- Obtained estimates for Vub and RD*
