FLAVOR TAGGING AND CP-VIOLATION MEASUREMENTS AT THE TEVATRON

By S. Tkaczyk

Abstract

The CDF collaboration has adapted several heavy flavor tagging techniques and employed them in analyses of time-dependent flavor asymmetries using data from the Tevatron Run I. The tagging algorithms were calibrated using low-Pt inclusive lepton and dilepton trigger data samples. The tagging techniques were applied to a sample of ∼ 400 B0 d /B0d → J/ψK0 s decays and were used to measure the CP violation parameter, sin(2β). Prospects for future improved measurements of the CP violation parameters at the Tevatron are briefly discussed.
