    Probing the Standard Model with electroweak penguin B decays

    Full text link
    Recent branching fraction and asymmetry results of Electroweak Penguin B decays from BaBar, Belle and CLEO experiments are reviewed. While these branching fractions are consistent with the Standard Model expectations and are being used to extract heavy quark model parameters and CKM matrix elements, the asymmetry results are just becoming sensitive to observe any new physics effects.Comment: Invited talk at the XXIII Physics in Collisions Conference (PIC03), Zeuthen, Germany, June 2003, 12 pages, LaTeX, 3 eps figures.

    Any Data, Any Time, Anywhere: Global Data Access for Science

    Full text link
    Data access is key to science driven by distributed high-throughput computing (DHTC), an essential technology for many major research projects such as High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments. However, achieving efficient data access becomes quite difficult when many independent storage sites are involved because users are burdened with learning the intricacies of accessing each system and keeping careful track of data location. We present an alternate approach: the Any Data, Any Time, Anywhere infrastructure. Combining several existing software products, AAA presents a global, unified view of storage systems - a "data federation," a global filesystem for software delivery, and a workflow management system. We present how one HEP experiment, the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS), is utilizing the AAA infrastructure and some simple performance metrics.Comment: 9 pages, 6 figures, submitted to 2nd IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Big Data Computing (BDC) 201

    Towards a muon collider

    A muon collider would enable the big jump ahead in energy reach that is needed for a fruitful exploration of fundamental interactions. The challenges of producing muon collisions at high luminosity and 10 TeV centre of mass energy are being investigated by the recently-formed International Muon Collider Collaboration. This Review summarises the status and the recent advances on muon colliders design, physics and detector studies. The aim is to provide a global perspective of the field and to outline directions for future work

    Differential cross section measurements for the production of a W boson in association with jets in proton‚Äďproton collisions at ‚ąös = 7 TeV

    Measurements are reported of differential cross sections for the production of a W boson, which decays into a muon and a neutrino, in association with jets, as a function of several variables, including the transverse momenta (pT) and pseudorapidities of the four leading jets, the scalar sum of jet transverse momenta (HT), and the difference in azimuthal angle between the directions of each jet and the muon. The data sample of pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV was collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb[superscript ‚ąí1]. The measured cross sections are compared to predictions from Monte Carlo generators, MadGraph + pythia and sherpa, and to next-to-leading-order calculations from BlackHat + sherpa. The differential cross sections are found to be in agreement with the predictions, apart from the pT distributions of the leading jets at high pT values, the distributions of the HT at high-HT and low jet multiplicity, and the distribution of the difference in azimuthal angle between the leading jet and the muon at low values.United States.
