    Documento escrito por un elevado número de autores/as, solo se referencia el/la que aparece en primer lugar y los/as autores/as pertenecientes a la UC3M.We describe a fully GPU-based implementation of the first level trigger for the upgrade of the LHCb detector, due to start data taking in 2021. We demonstrate that our implementation, named Allen, can process the 40 Tbit/s data rate of the upgraded LHCb detector and perform a wide variety of pattern recognition tasks. These include finding the trajectories of charged particles, finding proton-proton collision points, identifying particles as hadrons or muons, and finding the displaced decay vertices of long-lived particles. We further demonstrate that Allen can be implemented in around 500 scientific or consumer GPU cards, that it is not I/O bound, and can be operated at the full LHC collision rate of 30 MHz. Allen is the first complete high-throughput GPU trigger proposed for a HEP experiment.We would like to thank N. Neufeld and T. Colombo for many fruitful discussions.

    Differential branching fraction and angular analysis of the decay B-0 -> K*(0)mu(+)mu(-)

    Get PDF
    The angular distribution and differential branching fraction of the decay B-0 -> K*(0)mu(+)mu(-) are studied using a data sample, collected by the LHCb experiment in pp collisions at root s = 7 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb(-1). Several angular observables are measured in bins of the dimuon invariant mass squared, q(2). A first measurement of the zero-crossing point of the forward-backward asymmetry of the dimuon system is also presented. The zero-crossing point is measured to be q(0)(2) = 4.9 +/- 0.9 GeV2/c(4), where the uncertainty is the sum of statistical and systematic uncertainties. The results are consistent with the Standard Model predictions.We express our gratitude to our colleagues in the CERN accelerator departments for the excellent performance of the LHC.

    Precision measurement of D meson mass differences

    Get PDF
    Using three- and four-body decays of D mesons produced in semileptonic b-hadron decays, precision measurements of D meson mass differences are made together with a measurement of the D-0 mass. The measurements are based on a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb(-1) collected in pp collisions at 7 TeV. Using the decay D-0 -> K+K-K-pi(+), the D-0 mass is measured to be M(D-0) = 1864.75 +/- 0.15 (stat) +/- 0.11 (syst) MeV/c(2). The mass differences M(D+) - M(D-0) = 4.76 +/- 0.12 (stat) +/- 0.07 (syst) MeV/c(2), M(D-s(+)) - M(D+) = 98.68 +/- 0.03 (stat) +/- 0.04 (syst) MeV/c(2) are measured using the D-0 -> K+K-pi(+)pi(-) and D-(s)(+) -> K+K-pi(+) modes.We express our gratitude to our colleagues in the CERN accelerator departments for the excellent performance of the LHC.

    Brief review of the searches for the rare decays Bs0→μ+μ−B^0_s \rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^- and B0→μ+μ−B^0 \rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^-

    Full text link
    The current experimental status of the searches for the very rare decays Bs0→μ+μ−B^0_s \rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^- and B0→μ+μ−B^0 \rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^- is discussed. These channels are highly sensitive to various extensions of the Standard Model, specially in the scalar and pseudoscalar sector. The recent, most sensitive measurements from the CDF, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb collaborations are discussed and the combined upper exclusion limit on the branching fractions determined by the LHC experiments is shown to be 4.2×10−94.2\times 10^{-9} for Bs0→μ+μ−B^0_s \rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^- and 0.8×10−90.8\times 10^{-9} for B0→μ+μ−B^0 \rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^-. The implications of these tight bounds on a selected set of New Physics models is sketched.Comment: 20 pages, 15 figures, invited review for Modern Physics Letters
