CP Violation in {B_s}^0 -> J/psi.phi Decays: Measured with by Sabato Leo

By Sabato Leo

This thesis reviews at the ultimate size of the flavor-mixing part in decays of strange-bottom mesons (B_s) into J/psi and phi mesons played in high-energy proton-antiproton collisions recorded through the Collider scan at Fermilab. Interference happens among direct decays and decays following digital particle-antiparticle transitions (B_s-antiB_s). The section distinction among transition amplitudes (“mixing phase”) is observable and intensely delicate to contributions from non-standard-model debris or interactions that could be very challenging to realize in a different way – a indisputable fact that makes the proper size of the B_s blending section probably the most very important targets of particle physics. the consequences provided comprise an actual choice of the blending section and a set of different vital supplementary effects. All measurements are one of the such a lot distinctive on hand from a unmarried scan and supply considerably more advantageous constraints at the phenomenology of recent debris and interactions.
