  4. Inclusive Vcb Determination and hadronic moments • Inclusive semi-leptonic B decays: (BXcl) = |Vcb|2 f(,1,2,…) • Moments: g(,1,2,1,2,Ti,s) • one can measure the moments to improve the knowledge on Vcb • currently the theory uncertainties dominate • general test of non-perturbative aspects of HQET • measuring ,1 in several ways and finding consistency would be a powerful test of the OPE treatment of HQET • Experimentally: • CLEO, BABAR: inclusive technique with fully reconstructed B on the away side • DELPHI: inspired our approach

  5. Moments Definition • Spectral Moments: • lepton energy: En(d/dE)dE / (d/dE)dE • photon energy in bs • hadronic mass: dsH sHn (d/dsH) /dsH (d/dsH) where sH = mX2 • usually sH=mX2-m2Dspin (mDspin = 0.25mD+0.75m D* spin averaged mass)

Only the shape is needed. • PDG values for D and D* masses and b.r. will be inserted.

Feed-down to D+- • bckgd shape from channel above (D0-), rate is half • D**0 D*00 Not reconstructed. Half the rate of D*+- We can reconstruct all the Xc spectrum Neutral B would add statistics but involve neutrals

  14. MC samples and validation

  15. Montecarlo Generation • Bgenerator/EvtGen/CdfSim/TRGSim++ • “realistic simulation” with representative run number • Different samples: • MC Validation • D samples  inclusive BXcl • * tracking (** proxy)  exclusive BD*l • Optimization inclusive BlD** • Efficiency, M** bias individual D** mesons • (e.g. BD1l, D1D*, D*D0, D0K)

  16. Approach to MC validation • Cross-check kinematic variables • B spectrum modeling • Trigger emulation • Compare many data/MC distributions using binned 2 • Every possible decay mode • Sideband subtracted before comparison • Duplicate removal (D0K)

  17. Kinematic Comparisons: D*, D0K

  18. Can we “predict” relative yields? • Based on inclusive bD(*)+l • Based on exclusive BD(*)+l, D**l Two methods (a,b) to derive this BR +PDG BR + MC efficiency ratios Assume MC predictions and use 13% systematics

  19. Add another **D** D**

  20. Optimization • The relevant discriminants are: • Pt • R • d0PV • d0BV • d0DV • LxyBD • Signal model: MC • Background model: • WS **l charge • Optimize significance d0PV PV d0BV d0DV BV D0D+ DV **

  21. Discriminating Variables R (**-lD) ** 3d IP signif.WRT BV ** Pt (GeV) ** 3d IP signif.WRT DV ** 2d IP signif.WRT PV

  22. Optimization! • Generate D** montecarlo (the shape) • Normalize D** MC to data with reasonable cuts • Now we can turn the crank and optimize… • But what? • a is the ratio of background events between signal and sideband region (a<1, usually) • S is the MC signal (right sign combinations, signal region) • SWS is the WS data in the signal region • SBRS is the RS data in the sideband region • SBWS is the WS data in the sideband region

  23. Optimal point: • Pt(**)>0.4 GeV • R<1.0 • |d0PV/|>2.5 • |d0BV/|<3.0 D* • S/sqrt(…)8 D+ • |d0DV/|>0.8 • Lxy(BD)>0.05 cm • S/sqrt(…)6.6 • We have to live with different selections for D**D+ and D**D*

  24. Measure <m**2>, <m**4> m**

  25. Current Mass Distributions • DELPHI: • ~80 (K) • ~80 (D+)

  26. Background

  27. Backgrounds • Background from B decays: • Know how to model • Study using Bgenerator/EvtGen/TRGSim++/CdfSim • “Feeddown” • Combinatorial background under D peaks: • side-band subtraction • Prompt pions in D(*)+-l-: • Mostly from fragmentation • wrong-sign combination D++l- • cc • D0 impact parameter distribution

  28. Physics Background • Physics background studied with BD(*)+Ds- • Size wrt signal: • 100% uncertainty Other modes ~7% ~1 ~7%

  29. Background: Feed Down • Irreducible D**0 D*+( D+p0)p-background toD**0 D+p-subtracted statistically: • Mshape of D+p- combination above is like D0p-from D**0 D*+( D0p+)p- • Rate is one half (isospin) times the relative efficiency in both channels time the ratio of the D0 and D+ B.R.’s used in the analysis

  30. Pollution from ccbar? • We are cutting hard on Lxy(B) (500m), this is known to “solve” the lifetime problem • Look at D+/D0 impact parameter for evidence of prompt objects: we do not see any

  31. Measure <m**2>, <m**4> Efficiency Corrections

  32. Pl* • Theory prediction depends on Pl* cuts. We cannot do much but: • see how our efficiency as a function of Pl* looks like • Use a threshold-like correction • Evaluate systematics for different threshold values

  33. MC efficiencies • (M) is dependent on: • D** decay Model • Pl* cut • Use different models/cuts to evaluate systematics: • Individual resonances • Goity-Roberts • Phase space (not shown) • Baseline: BR weighted • (EvtGen) average of modes

  34. Corrections to MC efficiencies • Worried about possible shortcomings of the MC simulation: • Efficiency for requiring Si hits • ** separation variables not perfectly reproduced by MC • Use * candidates from data to derive corrections

  35. * probes Si hit efficiency • D0/+ reco is based on trigger tracks • Si requirements can bias (D0**) • (D0)m** • Take COT-only * • Apply 3Ax+3 (Stereo+SAS) • Measure fraction as a function m** • Use slope (error) as correction

  36. ** Separation Variables 124/49 137/43 • DataMC comparison • Behavior is similar, but there are discrepancies • Derive corrections from this comparison 146/45

  37. Data vs MC efficiencies • Apply to * the same tracking requirements we usually apply to ** (including Si hits) • Measure efficiencies for ** selection cuts applied to * • Take the ratio of MC and Data efficiencies as a function of Pt

  38. Measure <m**2>, <m**4> Moments ExtractionProcedure

  39. Computing the D** Moments • All the pieces are put together in an unbinned procedure using weighted events • Signal right sign (SRS)w = +1 • Signal wrong sign (SWS)w = -1 • Sideband right sign (SBRS)w = -ai • Sideband wrong sign (SBWS)w = +ai • Apply efficiency corrections: efficiencies are propagated on weights W=w (aPt**+b)/[MC(m**)(cm**+d)]

  40. More Backgrounds • Feed-down pseudo-events are formed from the D0p-** mass in Kp events (in SRS,SWS,SBRS,SBWS). The weight is • Physics background events are generated and assigned a weight where e=0.07 is the efficiency of the background relative to the signal. The weight is then corrected with the efficiency factor from MC.

  41. D+, D*+ Relative Normalization • Relative normalization of D* channels is irrelevant since they all have the same underlying M distribution. • D+ channel has a different M distribution. All D+ events have their weights modified as: • Systematics: • BR uncertainties from PDG (7%) •  ratio from studies on data (13%)

  42. Resulting m** distribution

  43. Computing the Xc Moments • The D0 and D*0 pieces have to be added to the D**0 moments, according to where the fi are the fractions of Dil events above the pl*cut. Only ratios of fi’s enter the final result. f

  44. Measure <m**2>, <m**4> Moments ExtractionSystematics

  45. Systematicsshopping list • Mass scale and resolution • Efficiency corrections • From MC • from data • Lepton momentum cut • Background model • Radial excitations • Physics background • Relative D+/D* normalization • Semileptonic B branching ratios • D** mass cut

  46. Mass scale/resolution • We are measuring m** and then adding the PDG masses for D+/D* • Basically insensitive to absolute scale issues • Mass resolution matters • The sample with the worst resolution is K0 • Re-smear K0 with 60MeV gaussian and use this as systematic

  47. Efficiency corrections from MC • Uncertainty comes from lack of knowledge on the D** BR and phase space structures… • Two possible MC models: • BR weighted EvtGen admixture, to the best of today’s knowledge • Plain phase space • Switch to evaluate • systematics…

  48. Efficiency Corrections from data • Efficiencies measured on data have modeling uncertainties/stat. Errors • Float parameters within ranges and compute the effect on the moments • Mass-dependent: use stat error on slope • Pt-dependent: use 0th/1st order polynomial difference

  49. Lepton momentum cut-off • We are not “literally” cutting on Pl* (it is not accessible, experimentally) • Detector implicitly cuts on it • Assume a baseline cut-off • Vary in a reasonable range to evaluate systematics • We use f to derive f**, given f0, f* • f=f(,1) • We use experimental prior knowledge on ,1 to evaluate systematics • Effect is negligible
