B-Physics Possibilities at D0

  • David Hedin
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 44)


This report presents a study of the capabilities of the DO detector to do B-related physics by utilizing the presence of a muon both as a trigger and as a tag.1 The almost complete muon coverage plus the fine calorimeter segmentation will allow D0 to expand upon the B-physics which have been done at UA1 with muons.2 This report will briefly discuss the physics topics and then will give rate calculations from different muon sources along with studies on how to separate them. Finally, studies of ψμμ and BψK s will be presented.
