B Meson Lifetime Measurement

  • M. Piccolo
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 44)


The lifetime of hadrons containing b-quark has been the subject of extensive experimental work and theoretical speculation; its importance is due to implications on some of the fundamental parameters of the Standard Model, such as the top quark mass and the mixing angles.
