    The purpose of high energy physics is to improve our knowledge about the fundamental structure of matter, in particular about particles that constitute the world. One of these is the top quark, that was discovered in 1995 by the CDF and D0 collaborations at the Tevatron protons-antiprotons collider. One of the primary aim of the Tevatron has been then the fine study of the top quark properties, in particular the top-antitop production cross section. Different analysis have been performed in the leptons (μ,e,τ) + jets, dileptons, and all hadronic channels to determine accurately the values of these parameters, and thus to test the validity of the Standard Model. The main goal of this thesis is to verify one of the theoretical predictions of the Standard Model of particle physics, the top-antitop production cross section, at the Tevatron collider.

    Supersymmetry, the extension of the Standard Model of particle physics, is searched for, by trying to observe the supersymmetric partner of the bottom quark (b-bar). This search is performed by using events with a final state comprising 2 coplanar b-quark jets and missing transverse energy and coming from a sample of 992 pb{sup -1} of data collected by the D0 detector at the Tevatron, the Fermilab pp-bar collider. The absence of an excess of events in comparison to Standard Model expectations leads to exclude sb masses up to 201 GeV and neutralino masses up to 94 GeV. The missing transverse energy has been studied carefully under 2 points of view, because of its fundamental role in this search. First, at the level of the trigger system which allows the online selection candidate events, and then during the process Z {yields} {nu}{nu} + jets that is an important background noise and in which the transverse momentum of Z turns into missing energy because of the no-detection of the neutrinos.

    The top quark is the heaviest standard model quark. Discovered in 1995 by the two Tevatron experiments it has atypical properties. In particular its time life is so short that it decays before hadronizing, so the top quark mass could be measured with a high precision. Data collected by the DØ experiment between 2002 and 2009, which represent an integrated luminosity of 5.4 fb⁻¹, are used to measure the top quark mass by using the matrix element method in the three dilepton channels: dielectron, electron--muon and dimuon. The measured mass, 174.0 ± 1.8 (stat.) ± 2.4 (syst.) GeV, is in a good agreement with other measurements and limited by the systematic uncertainties for the first time in these channels. In this thesis different approaches have been studied to improve the accuracy of this measurement: the use of b-quark jet identification in order to optimize the selection of top--anti-top events and a better determination of the main systematic uncertainties. A special attention has been paid to the Monte-Carlo simulation of muons in DØ: the improved smearing procedure for the simulated muons, discussed in this thesis, will be used to increase the accuracy of the top properties measurements as well as the precision of many other DØ measurements.

    The introduction of the Higgs boson in the standard model provides a mechanism to explain the origin of the masses of the elementary particles. The Higgs boson has not yet been discovered but a lower limit on its mass has been set of 114.4 GeV at 95% confidence level by LEP experiments. The search of the Higgs boson is been pursued at the Tevatron, proton­antiproton collider, in the associated production channel $WH$ with a Higgs mass lower than 135 GeV where the Higgs decay in $b\\bar{b}$.

    Two high energy particle physics analyses are presented in this PhD report using events with two leptons oppositely charged and with missing transverse energy. These events are selected using 9.7 fb-1 of total pp collisions data collected with the DØ detector at the TeVatron at √s=1.96 TeV.The first analysis is the research of the Higgs boson decaying in the H→WW→μνμν channel. No significant excess above the background prediction is observed.Upper limits on Higgs boson production cross-section are computed in the standard model framework but also in the 4th generation of fermions and in the fermiophobic coupling to Higgs boson hypotheses. In order to validate the research methodology, the W boson pair production cross-section is measured.The second analysis is the measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry of the tt pair production. This is the first measurement in the dileptonic channel at DØ experiment. In this context, a new tt pair kinematic reconstruction is used (matrix element method) to give a raw measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry. Thanks to a dedicated calibration method, we give a final measurement of AFB=18.0 ± 6.0 (stat) ± 3.3 (syst).

    Symmetry is one of the most natural extensions of the standard model. At low energy it may consist in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model which is the framework chosen to perform the search of the stop with 350 pb{sup -1} of data collected by D0 during the run-IIa period of the Tevatron. We selected the events with an electron, a muon, missing transverse energy and non-isolated tracks, signature for the stop decay in 3 particles (stop {yields} bl sneutrino). Since no significant excess of signal is seen, the results are interpreted in terms of limit on the stop production cross-sections, in such a way that we extend the existing exclusion region in the parameter space (m(stop), m(sneutrino)) up to stop masses of 168 (140) GeV for sneutrino masses of 50 (94) GeV. Finally, because of the crucial role of the electromagnetic calorimeter, a fine calibration was performed using Z {yields} e{sup +}e{sup -} events, which improved significantly the energy resolution.

    Le sujet de ce mémoire est la mesure de la masse du boson de Higgs dans l'expérience CMS auprès du LHC, au travers du canal de désintégration en quatre leptons, avec un point de vue volontairement accentué vers les électrons. Ce document n’est ni une liste exhaustive de mes implications sur CMS, ni une revue générale de la reconstruction des électrons et de l’analyse du boson de Higgs en quatre leptons, mais une mixture des deux. La trame est structurée autour de la notion d’ingrédients, qui, pas à pas, sont nécessaires à la réalisation de la mesure finale.

    The Tevatron has undergone an impressive technical renovation program whose final aim is to reach an integrated luminosity of 15 fb{sup -1} per experiment. Both CDF and DO detectors have been upgraded in the fields of detection, triggering, track reconstruction and particle identification. In the framework of the standard model, theoretical studies show that for a luminosity of only 2 fb{sup -1} (that is the first step of the renovation program) CDF and DO could barely extend the domain already excluded by LEP for the existence of the Higgs boson. On the other hand for a luminosity of 15 fb{sup -1}, a standard Higgs boson could be excluded up to 180 GeV/c{sup 2} and discovered up to 125 GeV/c{sup 2}. Moreover, a 3*{sigma} result could be obtained in the decay channels H {yields} bb-bar and H {yields} W{sup +}W{sup -} up to 180 GeV/c{sup 2}. In the framework of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM), at least 20 fb{sup -1} are required for the discovery of the Higgs boson in the energy range: 80 {<=} m{sub A} {<=} 380 GeV/c{sup 2}.

    The Standard Model of particle physics has known a tremendous rise during the twentieth century. Built up from the early 1930s to the 1970s, this theory describing elementary particles and their interactions has now been intensively tested by LEP and Tevatron colliders. Besides its success, some questions remain and theories attempting to go beyond the Standard Model have emerged. Many of them are predicting the existence of a new gauge boson Z', which is supposed to be observable at the TeV scale. Data recorded by the LHC since autumn 2008 are a new opportunity to check the consistency of the Standard Model and to search for new physics evidence. Work that has been done by the ATLAS collaboration during the last four years has focused on understanding detector's behaviour and analysing the very first collected collisions. This thesis is reflecting these two aspects. The first part of this thesis describes the caracterisation of a pathology of the ATLAS liquid argon calorimeter electronics and the study of co...

    In this thesis we have put the first constraints on the fundamental parameters of the Randall-Sundrum model of extra dimensions, k/M{sub Pl} which is proportional to the coupling of the graviton to the standard model fields and M{sub G} which is the mass of the first excited state of the Kaluza-Klein graviton. The analysis performed on Monte Carlo sample of the signal allowed to find an error in the PYTHIA generator. The elaboration of an independent generator dedicated for this special analysis helped to find out and correct the error. The data sample used for the analysis covers the period running from november 2002 up to july 2003 taken by the D0 collaboration at Tevatron, which corresponds to an accumulated luminosity of 107,8 pb{sup -1}. The search for the graviton in the dimuon channel allowed to measure the Z production cross-section multiplied by the branching ratio in dimuons. (author)

On peut notamment qualier l'année 2012 de date-clé dans l'histoire de la physique des particules. En 2012, une nouvelle particule a été découverte au LHC [1, 2], dont la majeure partie de la communauté s'accorde aujourd'hui à dire qu'il s'agit très probablement du boson de Higgs.

    D0 is one of the 2 detectors settled on the Tevatron at Fermilab. This thesis has been made in collaboration with the 'theory' group and the D0 group of IPNL (nuclear physics institute of Lyon). Within the D0 group we have worked on the calibration of the detector's calorimeter: intercalibration. Using the fact that the physics is phi-symmetric in D0 we have created and applied statistical methods for a relative calibration of some phi-symmetric parts of the calorimeter. Work on particle physics concerned the two Higgs doublet model. In such models leptonic number violation is possible: we have simulated the H{sup 0}/A{sup 0} {yields} {tau}{mu} signal in order to study the discovery potential and the constraints on the coupling responsible for this decay.

    Supersymmetry could be the most natural extension of the Standard Model. In this thesis we present a new search for the sTop, the hypothetical scalar partner of the Top quark, that we performed in the framework of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), using the Run I data of the DO experiment, which corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 108 pb{sup -1}. We selected events with one electron, one muon and missing transverse energy in the final state, which can be the decay product of pair of sTop quarks in 3 (t-tilde {yields} bl{nu}-tilde), or 4-body (t-tilde {yields} b{chi}-tilde{sub 1}{sup 0}l{nu}{sub l}). No signal is seen and the results are interpreted in terms of limits on the sTop production cross-section and exclusion regions in the parameter space (m{sub t}-tilde,m{sub {chi}}-tilde{sub 1{sup 0}}) or (m{sub t}-tilde,m{sub {nu}}-tilde). This new type of selection at the Tevatron for the search of the sTop allowed us to put stronger constraints than those previously published at LEP or at the Tevatron in the t-tilde {yields} bl{nu}-tilde channel, and the first limits ever set in the 4-body decay channel. For the 3-body channel, assuming that the sneutrino is the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP), the excluded region at 95% confidence level extends up to a sTop mass of 142 (130) GeV if the sneutrino mass (m{sub {nu}}-tilde) is 43 (86) GeV. If the 4-body decay channel dominates, assuming that the neutralino is the LSP, the limit depends on the sneutrino mass. If it is light enough (m{sub {nu}}-tilde {approx}< 100 GeV) this limit reaches a sTop mass of 132 GeV for a neutralino mass of 60 GeV. In all searches for new particles, the calorimetry plays a crucial role from the experimental point of view. The expected increase in integrated luminosity in the Run II which started on the 1. of March 2001, and the detector upgrade which has been achieved over the last three years will allow to extend these exclusion domains or to discover the sTop.

    Fermilab hosted an exceptional event on 11 June: the Tevatron Impact symposium. More than 800 people attended to hear how the Tevatron advanced our understanding of fundamental physics.   A version of this "Director's Corner" by Pier Oddone first appeared in Fermilab Today on 12 June.   The development of accelerator technology for the Tevatron has influenced every subsequent major hadron accelerator. We heard reviews on the detector technologies and trigger systems developed with the Tevatron that are essential today for high-luminosity machines like the LHC. There were also talks on the superconducting-wire industry that made MRI magnets ubiquitous, and we discussed the major computational systems that use large farms of Linux-based commodity processors. Researchers who worked on the Tevatron also established multivariate analysis techniques that now allow us to squeeze the maximum information from complex data sets.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gelfand, N.M.

    1994-12-01

    The performance of the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at the commencement of run Ib was far below expectations. After a frustrating period of several months, a low-{beta} quad downstream of the interaction point at B0 was found to be rolled. This rolled quadrupole coupled the horizontal and vertical motion of the Tevatron beams. It also made matching the beam from the Main Ring to the Tevatron impossible, resulting in emittance blow up on injection. The net result of the roll was a significant reduction in the Tevatron luminosity. When the roll in the quadrupole was corrected the performance of the Tevatron improved dramatically. This note will discuss the experimental data indicating the presence of coupling and subsequent calculations which show how coupling an affect the luminosity. It is not intended to exhaust a discussion of coupling, which hopefully will be understood well enough to be discussed in a subsequent note.

  10. Tevatron lower temperature operation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This year saw the completion of three accelerator improvement projects (AIP) and two capital equipment projects pertaining to the Tevatron cryogenic system. The projects result in the ability to operate the Tevatron at lower temperature, and thus higher energy. Each project improves a subsystem by expanding capabilities (refrigerator controls), ensuring reliability (valve box, subatmospheric hardware, and compressor D), or enhancing performance (cold compressors and coldbox II). In January of 1994, the Tevatron operated at an energy of 975 GeV for the first time. This was the culmination, of many years of R ampersand D, power testing in a sector (one sixth) of the Tevatron, and final system installation during the summer of 1993. Although this is a modest increase in energy, the discovery potential for the Top quark is considerably improved

    Robitaille, Jean-Marc

    Il existe peu d'etudes sur les conceptions touchant les domaines de la biologie, notamment sur les conceptions de la circulation sanguine Nous avons observe egalement l'absence de recherche menee aupres d'eleves de l'ordre collegial sur cette question. Nous avons voulu combler une lacune en menant une recherche sur les conceptions de la circulation sanguine aupres d'eleves de l'ordre collegial. Pour mener cette recherche nous nous sommes inspires d'une methode developpee par Treagust (1988). Le premier niveau de formulation didactique etablit l'architecture du systeme et la fonction nutritive de la circulation. Le second niveau de formulation didactique decrit et relie les parametres de la dynamique de la circulation et leur relation: Pression, Debit et Resistance. Le troisieme niveau de formulation didactique s'interesse au controle de la circulation du sang dans un contexte d'homeostasie qui implique la regulation de la pression arterielle. Nous avons construit un questionnaire en nous guidant sur les niveaux de formulation didactique et l'analyse des entrevues menees aupres de dix-huit eleves, representatifs de la population cible. Ce questionnaire fut administre a un echantillon de 2300 eleves disperses dans six colleges de la region de Montreal. Notre echantillon comprend des eleves inscrits a des programmes de l'ordre collegial en Sciences de la nature et en Techniques de la sante et qui n'ont pas suivi le cours sur la circulation sanguine. Notre analyse des reponses des eleves de notre echantillon aux questions sur le premier niveau de formulation didactique revele que la majorite des eleves considerent que le systeme circulatoire relie les organes les uns aux autres dans un circuit en serie. Notre analyse revele egalement que la majorite des eleves estiment que les nutriments sont extraits du sang par les organes selon un processus de selection base sur les besoins determines par la fonction de l'organe. Ces besoins sont differents selon les organes qui ne

  15. Tevatron damper system

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A fast beam damper system is currently being built for the Tevatron. The system is similar to the Super Damper system in the main ring with increased bandwidth and a pulsed high power mode for injection errors. The purpose of this writeup is to describe the basics of the system, and some of the reasoning behind its design. Calculations of expected performance are also included

  16. Tevatron quench pressure measurement

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The upcoming lower temperature/higher energy upgrade to the Fermilab Tevatron accelerator has raised questions concerning peak pressures during magnet system quenches. An experiment was performed to measure the pressure versus time at various quench energies in several devices in the Tevatron. A smaller study also looked at the temperature and mass flow rate versus time. Data was captured in a PC based circular buffer. The buffer captured ten seconds of data at 250 Hz for up to eight channels. Quenches ranging from 400 GeV to 1000 GeV were investigated. Peak pressures of 1.24 MPa (180 psia) were measured at 1000 GeV. Peak pressure increased linearly with quench energy up to 950 GeV, where it flattened off. Likewise, the time to reach peak pressure decreased linearly until 900 GeV, where it flattened off at 280 ms. The process appears to become heat transfer limited at about 900 GeV. This results in reasonable peak quench pressures at the expense of the coil reaching higher peak temperatures (not measured). The existing cryostats and relieving systems in the Tevatron will be sufficient for the new low temperature upgrade

    2004-09-01

    The first part is dedicated to the theoretical aspects of the mechanism of mass generation in the standard model. The implications of this mechanism in the experimental field concerning the Higgs boson search and neutrinos are detailed. The second part presents the D0 experiment at the Tevatron (Fermilab) and describes in a detailed way the forward pre-shower (FPS) that is a sub-detector of D0 whose aim is to identify the electrons. FPS has required a specific triggering system linked to a data acquisition line. The third part is devoted to the Opera experiment that is planned to operate in 2006. The purpose of this experiment is to confirm the oscillations of muon neutrinos and tau neutrinos through the direct detection of a tau lepton in the pure beam of muon neutrinos produced in CERN. The author describes his contribution to the design and testing of the front-end read electronics of the Opera scintillator tracker. (A.C.)

  18. Tevatron extraction microcomputer

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Extraction in the Fermilab Tevatron is controlled by a multi-processor Multibus microcomputer system called QXR (Quad eXtraction Regulator). QXR monitors several analog beam signals and controls three sets of power supplies: the ''bucker'' and ''pulse'' magnets at a rate of 5760 Hz, and the ''QXR'' magnets at 720 Hz. QXR supports multiple slow spills (up to a total of 35 seconds) with multiple fast pulses intermixed. It linearizes the slow spill and bucks out the high frequency components. Fast extraction is done by outputting a variable pulse waveform. Closed loop learning techniques are used to improve performance from cycle to cycle for both slow and fast extraction. The system is connected to the Tevatron clock system so that it can track the machine cycle. QXR is also connected to the rest of the Fermilab control system, ACNET. Through ACNET, human operators and central computers can monitor and control extraction through communications with QXR. The controls hardware and software both employ some standard and some specialized components. This paper gives an overview of QXR as a control system; another paper summarizes performance

  19. Tevatron collider physics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This workshop is dedicated to the study of the physics opportunities at Fermilab in the 1990's. The operation of the Tevatron Collider at significantly increased luminosity will provide a major source of these opportunities. The total integrated luminosity in the 1990's at √s = 2 TeV should be in excess of one inverse femtobarn and by 1995 a typical integrated luminosity (per experiment per run) may well be in excess of 100 pb-1. The plans for the Tevatron Upgrade are discussed in detail by S. Holmes. As far as can be foreseen in 1989, the three generation standard model will be as healthy in the 1990's as it is today. Thus, much attention will be focused on finding top, searching for the Higgs boson, pinning down the KM matrix elements through mixing and CP violation measurements, and more precisely testing the gauge structure of the standard model. In the following Sections, both the standard model and some possible extensions are discussed. Within the standard model the author touches on tests of QCD, what can be learned from single and pair production of Electroweak bosons, the signals and associated discovery reach for top, and b physics potential. Beyond the standard model he explores the possibilities of new gauge bosons (W±' and Z0'), enlarging the symmetries via supersymmetry, new dynamics replacing the standard Higgs, and composite quarks and/or leptons

    Vellidis, Costas; Bravina, L.; Foka, Y.; Kabana, S.

    2015-01-01

    The Tevatron p$\\bar{p}$ collider was shut down in 2011, after 10 years of high performance operation at a center-of-mass energy √s = 1.96 TeV in Run II. The two experiments, CDF and DZero, continue to analyze the collected data, aiming to extract all possible information regarding studies of the standard model and searches for new physics. A short review of some of the recent measurements at the Tevatron, and of the impact of the Tevatron program to high energy physics, is presented.

  2. Tevatron ionization profile monitoring

    Jansson, A.; Bowie, K.; Fitzpatrick, T.; Kwarciany, R.; Lundberg, C.; Slimmer, D.; Valerio, L.; Zagel, J.; /Fermilab

    2006-06-01

    Ionization Profile monitors have been used in almost all machines at Fermilab. However, the Tevatron presents some particular challenges with its two counter-rotating, small beams, and stringent vacuum requirements. In order to obtain adequate beam size accuracy with the small signals available, custom made electronics from particle physics experiments was employed. This provides a fast (single bunch) and dead-timeless charge integration with a sensitivity in the femto-Coulomb range, bringing the system close to the single ionization electron detection threshold. The detector itself is based on a previous Main Injector prototype, albeit with many modifications and improvements. The first detector was installed at the end of 2005, and the second detector during the spring shutdown. The ultimate goal is to continuously monitor beam size oscillations at injection, as well as the beam size evolution during ramp and squeeze. Initial results are very encouraging.

  3. Higgs Searches at the Tevatron

    Evans, H G

    2000-01-01

    Higgs hunting is a world-wide sport and the Tevatron is set to become the next field of play when Run II starts in March 2001. To set the stage, we summarize results of searches for standard and non-standard Higgs bosons by CDF and Dzero in Run I at the Tevatron. Progress has been made in quantifying the requirements on the Tevatron Collider and on the upgraded experiments in Run II for extending the excellent work done at LEP. Armed with parameterizations of expected detector performance, the Tevatron Higgs Working group has made predictions of the sensitivity of CDF and Dzero to Higgs bosons in the Standard Model and in its Minimal Supersymmetric extension as a function of integrated luminosity. These predictions are presented to underscore the excitement being generated by Run II, and to highlight the need for the highest possible luminosity.

  4. QCD at the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Tevatron p bar p collider at Fermilab, operating at √s = 1.8 TeV, offers many unique possibilities to confront QCD with experiment and here a small selection of all the analyses that are being pursued, will be presented. Both the CDF and D0 detectors have accumulated large data samples (L>30pb-1) of photon, jet and W/Z final states, which are used to compare with increasingly more accurate theoretical predictions based on next to leading (NLO) QCD at the parton level. The inclusive photon cross section (dσ/dET) and several inclusive single and two jet cross sections will be presented and compared to such predictions. These measurements verify the accuracy of the NLO approximation as well as the correctness of the parton densities in a kinematic range: x > 10-3 and momentum transfers (ET) from 30 to 400 GeV. Of particular interest is the gluon density, which is not directly probed in other measurements of the parton densities. The W charge asymmetry as a function of rapidity, which determines the u/d ratio in the parton densities, is an example how a collider measurement contributes to the accurate determination of parton densities. The measurement and its impact on parton densities will be presented. The distribution of the transverse energy in a jet, as a function of the distance from the jet axis is predicted at the parton level in NLO QCD. The measurement of this quantity, at several different transverse energies and rapidities, is compared to different theoretical predictions. A similar approach, but based on finding subjets within jets will also be described. The strong coupling constant as, the fundamental parameter of QCD, is determined from the ratio W + 1jet/W + 0jet at the renormalization scale μ = MW. The result will be compared to other measurements at different renormalization scales

  5. Cryogenic system for the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Supporting the world's highest energy proton/antiproton collider in high energy physics research, the Fermilab Tevatron cryogenic system consists of a hybrid system of a Central Helium Liquefier feeding twenty-four 1 kW satellite refrigerators through a 6.5 km transfer line and supplying the liquid helium for the superconducting magnets of the accelerator and liquid nitrogen for the thermal shielding. Tevatron upgrades have been completed by 1996 and resulted in more than doubling the CHL liquefaction capacity, potential decrease of magnet operating temperatures from 4.9 K to 3.9 K and proven increase of Tevatron energy from 900 GeV to 990 GeV without losing operational stability

    2011-01-01

    For almost a quarter of a century, the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider was the centerpiece of the world's high energy physics program - beginning operation in December of 1985 until it was overtaken by LHC in 2011. The aim of the this unique scientific instrument was to explore the elementary particle physics reactions with center of mass collision energies of up to 1.96 TeV. The initial design luminosity of the Tevatron was 10{sup 30} cm{sup -2}s{sup -1}, however as a result of two decades of upgrades, the accelerator has been able to deliver 430 times higher luminosities to each of two high luminosity experiments, CDF and D0. Tevatron will be shut off September 30, 2011. The collider was arguably one of the most complex research instruments ever to reach the operation stage and is widely recognized for many technological breakthroughs and numerous physics discoveries. Below we briefly present the history of the Tevatron, major advances in accelerator physics, and technology implemented during the long quest for better and better performance. We also discuss some lessons learned from our experience.

    2005-01-01

    The Tevatron Beam Position Monitor (BPM) readout electronics and software have been upgraded to improve measurement precision, functionality and reliability. The original system, designed and built in the early 1980s, became inadequate for current and future operations of the Tevatron. The upgraded system consists of 960 channels of new electronics to process analog signals from 240 BPMs, new front-end software, new online and controls software, and modified applications to take advantage of the improved measurements and support the new functionality. The new system reads signals from both ends of the existing directional stripline pickups to provide simultaneous proton and antiproton position measurements. Measurements using the new system are presented that demonstrate its improved resolution and overall performance.

The author summarizes the most important of those results here and comments on some of the prospects for the future.

  15. Tevatron in the 1990s

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper reports that in 1978, Fermilab set out a goal of building a superconducting accelerator (Energy Saver) which would raise the proton energy to close to 1000 GeV for operation in two modes. Tevatron I would provide proton-antiproton collisions at a total CM energy of near 2.0 TeV to study the particle mass domain beyond 100 GeV. Tevatron II would provide extensive facilities for the programmatic study of Standard Model physics in an upgraded fixed-target program. There was of course the realization that with the right mixture of precision and imagination, the collider could add significantly to Standard Model physics (e.g. W and Z physics, W, Z pairs, B-physics) and that the fixed-target program could explore beyond the Standard Model (e.g., rare K-decays, CP violation). In 1988, we are engaged in setting out the future program of the Laboratory based upon the success of the Energy Saver, TeV I and TeV II construction programs. This future program assures the operation of the TEVATRON facility for physics is the overriding priority between now and perhaps 1993 and it also assumes that the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) will be funded for construction in 1990 and will begin producing physics by 1999. A brief history of upgrades is presented in section XI

  16. Characteristics of the new TEVATRON lattice

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The new low β insertion has been installed at B0 in the Tevatron. This new insertion is designed to match into the FODO lattice of the Tevatron and will therefore permit the installation of an additional independent low β insertion at D0. The insertions at B0 and D0 will eventually be optically identical. Matched low β insertions in the Tevatron collider are independent except for the need to maintain a constant tune with distributed tune correction quadrupoles

  19. Tevatron combined top quark mass

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We summarize the top-quark mass measurements from the CDF and D0 experiments at Fermilab. We combine published Run I (1992-1996) measurements with the most precise published and preliminary Run II (2001-2012) measurements using a data set corresponding to up to 8.7 fb-1 of pp-bar collisions. Taking uncertainty correlations into account, and adding in quadrature the statistical and systematic uncertainties, the resulting preliminary Tevatron average mass of the top quark is mt = 173.20 ± 0.87 GeV/c2.

We present here the various analyses that are currently testing the possibility of a supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model. No evidence for such processes have been found in luminosities that range from 300 to 800 pb{sup -1} and different limits on the different supersymmetric models are set. Constraints coming from indirect searches are also presented.

B{sub s} Mixing is the most important analysis within the B Physics program of both experiments. In this paper they summarize the most recent results on this topic from both D0 and CDF experiments. There were very important updates in both experiments after his last talk, hence the organizers warmly recommended me to include the latest available results on B{sub s} mixing, instead of what he presents there.

Searches for supersymmetric particles are starting to set new limits, improving over the LEP and Run I results and exploring new regions of parameter space. They present recent results in Supersymmetry with the upgraded CDF and D0 detectors and give some prospects for the future of these searches.

    2012-01-01

    Bunches in Tevatron are known to be longitudinally unstable: their collective oscillations, also called "dancing bunches," persist without any signs of decay. Typically, a damper is used to stop these oscillations, but recently, it was theoretically predicted that the oscillations can be stabilized by means of small bucket shaking. Dedicated measurements in Tevatron have shown that this method does stop the dancing.

    We study the signals for supersymmetry at the Tevatron and DiTevatron (\\sqrt{s}=4\\TeV) in various well-motivated supersymmetric models. We consider the trilepton signature in the decay of pair-produced charginos and neutralinos, the missing energy signature in gluino and squark production, and the b\\bar b signal in the decay of the lightest supersymmetric Higgs boson produced in association with a W or Z boson. In each case we perform signal and background studies, using Monte Carlo and/or real data to estimate the sensitivity to these signals at the Tevatron and DiTevatron with the Main Injector, for short- and long-term integrated luminosities of {\\cal L}=10 and 25\\ifb, and 5\\sigma statistical significance. We conclude that one could probe chargino masses as high as m_{\\chi^\\pm_1}\\sim180\\, (200)\\GeV, gluino masses as high as m_{\\tilde g}\\sim450\\,(750)\\GeV, and lightest Higgs boson masses as high as m_h\\sim110\\,(120)\\GeV at the Tevatron (DiTevatron).

    The beam-beam effects have been the dominating sources of beam loss and lifetime limitations in the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider [1]. Electron lenses were originally proposed for compensation of electromagnetic long-range and head-on beam-beam interactions of proton and antiproton beams [2]. Results of successful employment of two electron lenses built and installed in the Tevatron are reported in [3,4,5]. In this paper we present design features of the Tevatron electron lenses (TELs), discuss the generation of electron beams, describe different modes of operation and outline the technical parameters of various subsystems.

    It was observed during the early part of Run II that dipole corrector currents in the Tevatron were changing over time. Measurement of the roll for dipoles and quadrupoles confirmed that there was a slow and systematic movement of the magnets from their ideal position. A simple system using a digital protractor and laptop computer was developed to allow roll measurements of all dipoles and quadrupoles. These measurements showed that many magnets in the Tevatron had rolled more than 1 milli-radian. To aid in magnet alignment a new survey network was built in the Tevatron tunnel. This network is based on the use of free centering laser tracker. During the measurement of the network coordinates for all dipole, quadrupole and corrector magnets were obtained. This paper discusses roll measurement techniques and data, the old and new Tevatron alignment network.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The antiproton production cycle is enumerated, and the commissioning of the antiproton source is described, giving milestones and major obstacles. The Tevatron collider operation is described, including procedure to load the Tevatron with three bunches of protons and three bunches of antiprotons. Commissioning of the Main Ring and Tevatron for collider operation is described. Development and accelerator studies in four areas were necessary: main ring RF manipulations; controls and applications software support; Tevatron storage and low-beta squeeze sequence; and study of various beam transfers, storage steps, and sequences. Final tests are described. A long range upgrade program is presently under evaluation to accomplish these goals: luminosity increase to 5 x 1031 cm-2sec-1, production rates up to 4 x 1011 antiprotons/hr, and intensity increase for fixed target operation. Beam quality is to be improved by the injector and main ring upgrades, and the luminosity goal is addressed by the Collider upgrade

    In this report, we summarize the latest results of the top-quark mass and electroweak measurements from the Tevatron. Since the world combination of top-quark mass measurements was done, CDF and D0 experiments improved the precision of several results. Some of them reach the relative precition below 1% for a single measurement. From the electroweak results, we report on the WW and WZ production cross section, measurements of the weak mixing angle and indirect measurements of W boson mass. The Tevatron results of the weak mixing angle are still the most precise ones of hadron colliders.

    Bent crystal channeling has promising advantages for accelerator beam collimation at high energy hadron facilities such as the LHC. This significance has been amplified by several surprising developments including multi-pass channeling and the observation of enhanced deflections over the entire arc of a bent crystal. The second effect has been observed both at RHIC and recently at the Tevatron. Results are reported showing channeling collimation of the circulating proton beam halo at the Tevatron. Parenthetically, this study is the highest energy proton channeling experiment ever carried out. The study is continuing.

    Fermilab's Tevatron is currently the world's highest energy accelerator in which tightly focused beams of 980 GeV protons and antiprotons collide at two dedicated interaction points (IPs). Both beams share the same beam pipe and magnet aperture and, in order to avoid multiple detrimental head-on collisions, the beams are placed on separated orbits everywhere except the main IPs by using high-voltage (HV) electrostatic separators. The electromagnetic beam-beam interaction at the main IPs together with the long-range interactions between separated beams adversely affect the collider performance, reducing the luminosity integral per store (period of continuous collisions) by 10-30%. Tuning the collider operation for optimal performance becomes more and more cumbersome as the beam intensities and luminosity increase. The long-range effects which (besides being nonlinear) vary from bunch to bunch are particularly hard to mitigate. A comprehensive review of the beam-beam effects in the Tevatron Collider Run II can be found in Ref. [1]. The beam-beam effects have been the dominating sources of beam loss and lifetime limitations in the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider [1]. Electron lenses were originally proposed for compensation of electromagnetic long-range and head-on beam-beam interactions of proton and antiproton beams [2]. Results of successful employment of two electron lenses built and installed in the Tevatron are reported in [3,4,5]. In this paper we present design features of the Tevatron electron lenses (TELs), discuss the generation of electron beams, describe different modes of operation and outline the technical parameters of various subsystems.

  6. The Tevatron Hadron Collider: A short history

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The subject of this presentation was intended to cover the history of hadron colliders. However this broad topic is probably better left to historians. I will cover a much smaller portion of this subject and specialize my subject to the history of the Tevatron. As we will see, the Tevatron project is tightly entwined with the progress in collider technology. It occupies a unique place among accelerators in that it was the first to make use of superconducting magnets and indeed the basic design now forms a template for all machines using this technology. It was spawned in an incredibly productive era when new ideas were being generated almost monthly and it has matured into our highest energy collider complete with two large detectors that provide the major facility in the US for probing high Pt physics for the coming decade

  7. Tevatron B0 low beta tuning report

This insertion is similar to the Type C low beta previously report, anti p Note 169, although some changes have been made to the quadrupole lengths and positions. This insertion is designated Type E. The purpose of the study was to see if it is possible to turn the insertion on in a smooth and continuous manner and tune the insertion to a value of β* of less than one meter while maintaining the overall tune of the j Tevatron to a constant value. This was found to be possible. An examination of chromaticity corrections for the Tevatron with the low beta insertion on in various configurations was also undertaken

    The data taken at the Tevatron experiments have been analyzed to search for Higgs bosons. For the Standard Model Higgs searches, no excess is observed, the data are in good agreement with the expectations, so that limits are set on the production rates. For various theoretical models beyond the Standard Model, there is no excess either, which allows to derive constraints in their respective parameter spaces.

The results discussed are those obtained by the CDF Collaboration from a comprehensive set of single, double, and multigap soft and hard diffraction processes studied during the twenty year period since 1985, when the CDF diffractive program was proposed and the first Blois Workshop was held.

    Since the beginning of Run II at the Fermilab Tevatron the QCD physics groups of the CDF and D0 experiments have worked to reach unprecedented levels of precision for many QCD observables. Thanks to the large dataset--over 3 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity recorded by each experiment--important new measurements have recently been made public and will be summarized in this paper.

    This paper describes the damper design for 6 proton on 6 pbar bunches in the Tevatron collider. Signal pickup, transient phase detection, derivative networks, and phase correction via the high-level rf are covered. Each rf station is controlled by a slow feedback loop. In addition, global feedback loops control each set of four cavities, one set for protons and one set for antiprotons. Operational experience with these systems is discussed. 7 refs., 9 figs.

  14. Measuring the orbit length of the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The orbit length in the Tevatron was measured when coasting beam was first obtained. The method was time-of-flight, using a vernier phase comparison between beam pickup signals and a synthesizer sine wave. Some effort was spent making a stable phase detector so that it would not be a limiting factor. The results exhibited a repeatability of a few Hz at 53 MHz, corresponding to a mean radius measurement to 0.1 mm. 5 refs., 4 figs

    1993-05-01

    The Tevatron Collider at Fermilab is the world`s highest energy hadron collider, colliding protons with antiprotons at a center of mass energy of 1800 GeV. At present six proton bunches collide with six antiproton bunches to generate luminosities of up to 9 {times} 10{sup 30} cm{sup {minus}2}s{sup {minus}1}. It is estimated that to reach luminosities significantly greater than 10{sup 31} cm{sup {minus}2}s{sup {minus}1} while minimizing the number of interactions per crossing, the number of bunches will have to be increased. Thirty-six bunch operation looks like the most promising plan. This paper looks at the strategies for increasing the number of particle bunches, the new hardware that needs to be designed and changes to the operating mode in filling the Tevatron. An interactive program which simulates the filling of the Tevatron collider is also presented. The time scale for multibunch operation and progress towards running greater than six bunches is given in this paper.

    1997-10-01

    The two-protons correlation function measured in the reaction S + Pb at 200 A MeV/c by the NA44 experiment at CERN SPS is presented. The experimental equipment is composed mainly from a magnetic spectrometer with trigger chambers, several hodoscopes for trajectory reconstruction and different Cherenkov detectors for particle identification. Experimental data are compared with the predictions of the microscopic model RQMD corrected for the detector resolution and the significant effects of secondary protons. The formation of the quark matter droplets, a new feature of the VENUS model is investigated through the two-protons correlation function. The proton-proton correlations with quark droplet formation taken into account, showed a quite strong attenuation and a function of anticorrelation only, at variance with the VENUS predictions. The origin of such a difference is evidenced by the particle emission time distributions. Indeed, the quark droplet formation are hindering the proton emission and, accordingly, leads to the increase of their production time. Remarkably, it was found that the pion emission time distribution differs from that of protons and presents structures associated to the multiple scattering and to the quark droplet decay. The search for the signature of quark droplet formation could be conducted by means of correlation functions implying couples of non-identical particles like the ({pi},p),({pi},K) and (K,p) systems 8 refs.

    Nucleus-nucleus collisions are the unique tool available to investigate the QCD matter phase diagram in the laboratory. A lot of work has been devoted to explore it in different domains in the last 3 decades, and the forthcoming LHC collider will contribute to such research increasing the collision center-of-mass energy by a factor 30 and the energy densities by a factor 1-10 with respect to the RHIC collider [C+04, A+06].Only a comprehensive analysis of a wide spectrum of experimental observables can help to fully characterize the prospected matter. In particular, valuable information is expected from charm and beauty production, the situation from SPS and RHIC charmonia data being puzzling [GdC07, Lei07, A+00a, Sco07], and the c¯c (b¯b) yields per central nucleon-nucleon collision being increased from 10 (0.1) to 110 (5) from RHIC to LHC [C+04, MG07]. Whether quarkonia will thermalize, will develop collective motion, will be further suppressed or regenerated are still open questions that LHC data might re...

    This document summarizes ten years of activities in the field of experimental particle physics, which I have done just after my PhD defense in 1999. After a short introduction describing my PhD work and my activities during these ten years, the first chapter describes an analysis made in the ALEPH experiment about the measurement of the Bose-Einstein correlations in W pair decays, using an event mixing method. Nevertheless, the main part of the text is dedicated to the work I have done in the ATLAS experiment at the LHC, between the years 2000 and 2010. Four parts are distinguished. First, an analysis concerning some searches for possible supersymmetric top decays with R-parity violation is described. Then a second part is written about the test bench of the tile calorimeter front-end electronics, and its installation in the ATLAS experiment. Third, the work done in the transition radiation tracker concerning the validation and the installation of the endcap front-end electronics is fully explained. End, the ...

  2. Increasing the energy of the Fermilab Tevatron accelerator

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The superconducting Tevatron accelerator at Fermilab has reached its eleventh year of operation since being commissioned in 1983. Last summer, four significant upgrades to the cryogenic system became operational which allow Tevatron operation at higher energy. This came after many years of R ampersand D, power testing in sectors (one sixth) of the Tevatron, and final system installation. The improvements include the addition of cold helium vapor compressors, supporting hardware for subatmospheric operation, a new satellite refrigerator control system, and a higher capacity central helium liquefier. A description of each cryogenic upgrade, commissioning experience, and attempts to increase the energy of the Tevatron are presented

  3. Upgrade of the Tevatron cryogenic system

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Fermilabs superconducting Tevatron accelerator has reached its tenth year of operation. This year, three significant upgrades to the cryogenic system will become operational; a second central helium liquefier, a Tevatron satellite refrigerator lower temperature upgrade, and a satellite refrigerator controls system upgrade. The decision to build a second central helium liquefier (CHL) was originally based on redundancy; protecting accelerator operation from a major CHL failure such as a heat exchanger. Higher capacity turbines were used in the second coldbox, which will result in an estimated 5400 liters per hour production rate. Preliminary commissioning of the coldbox took place in 1992. Full capacity testing will take place in 1993. To aid in the discovery of the top quark, it is desirable to increase the particle energy in the Tevatron accelerator. The machine is limited to an energy of 900 GeV due to magnet conductor short sample current at the existing operating temperature. An upgrade is underway to lower the temperature of the accelerator ∼1K. The short term goal is 1000 GeV operation with a 1100 GeV long term goal. Cold vapor compressors will be used in each of the 24 satellite refrigerators to achieve the temperature reduction. An upgrade of the existing satellite refrigerator controls system is necessary to incorporate the added control devices, instrumentation, and controls algorithms required by the low temperature upgrade. The existing Z80 Multibus I based system will be replaced with a 386 Multibus II system. New features will be incorporated, including processor to processor communications, fast event driven circular buffer, hierarchical alarm system, higher level language support, and more elaborate controlling algorithms

    2005-07-15

    This thesis is dedicated to the study of the first data taken by the D0 detector during the Run II of the Tevatron. Supersymmetric particles have been search for in proton-antiproton collisions, with a center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV. In the framework of supersymmetry with R-parity violation, I have studied the pair production of Gauginos, leading to a pair of LSP (0,{chi}{sub 1}), each one decaying into ee{nu}{sub {mu}} or e{mu}{nu}{sub e} with a {lambda}(121) coupling. The final state contains at least two electrons: I have thus paid special attention in this work to the methods concerning identification and mis-identification of electromagnetic particles, as well as reconstruction, triggering, and correction (of the reconstructed energy). In a selection of tri-leptons, with at least two electrons, and some transverse missing energy, we observed 0 event in the 350 pb{sup -1} of analyzed data, for 0.4 + 0.35 - 0.05 (sta) {+-} 0.16 (sys) expected from the Standard Model contributions. In the signal considered in this analysis, the selection efficiency is around 12 per cent. Results have been studied in two models: mSUGRA and MSSM. In mSUGRA model, limits on m(1/2) and lightest gauginos's masses have been obtained, with tan({beta}) = 5, A{sub 0} = 0, m{sub 0} = 100 and 1000 GeV.c{sup -2} and both signs of {mu}. In MSSM, with the hypothesis of massive sfermions (1000 GeV.c{sup -2}), we can exclude, at 95% Confidence Level, the region m({chi}{sub 1}{sup {+-}}) < 200 GeV.c{sup -2} for all masses of {chi}{sub 1}{sup 0} LSP.

    This paper reviews the most recent results on searches for physics beyond the Standard Model at Tevatron. Both the collider experiments: CDF and D0 are performing a large variety of searches such as searches for scalar top and scalar bottom particles, search for new gauge bosons, search for long-lived massive particles and general searches for new particles decaying into dijets. The results, summarized here, are a selection of what obtained recently by both the collaborations using the Run II data, collected so far.

    During Run II of the Tevatron collider, D0 collaboration has made extensive searches for the neutral MSSM Higgs bosons ({phi}), produced in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. Two such analyses, addressing inclusive {phi} production with {phi} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}, and associated {phi}b(b) production with {phi} {yields} b{bar b} are reported here. No excess of events above the background expectation has been observed in any of these analyses. The results are combined to set constraints on the MSSM parameter space.

  8. Present state of Tevatron lower temperature operation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Fermilab continues to work on raising the particle energy of the Tevatron by lowering magnet temperatures using cold vapor compressors. In 1995, another two rounds of power tests were completed. These power tests, although showing significant improvement over the initial tests of 1993-94, have led to the conclusion that 1000 GeV operation cannot be attained without replacing/rearranging magnets with lower quench currents before the next Collider Run in 1999. Development of more cold compressor control strategies also continues

    Using their full Tevatron Run II data sets, the CDF and D0 Experiments present measurements of CP -violating asymmetries in the charmless decays of bottom baryons Λ0 → pπ-, Λ0 → pK-, and also for B0 → K-π+, B0 → K+π-, b b s Ds → φπ± , and for single muons and like-sign dimuons in pp collisions. Except for the like-sign dimuon asymmetry, these asymmetry measurements are consistent with available predictions of the standard model.

Effects of ρ-ω interference in X decay are also introduced

    While the heaviest known elementary particle, the top quark, has been discovered in 1995 by the CDF and D0 collaborations in ttbar events, it took 14 more years until the observation of single top quark production. In this article, we discuss recent studies of single top quark production by the CDF and D0 collaborations at the Tevatron. In particular, we present the measurement of single top quark s- and t-channel production combined, the first observation of t-channel production, the simultaneous measurement of s- and t-channel production cross sections as well as the extraction of the CMK matrix element |Vtb}|.

    Motivated by the desire to understand the longitudinal effects of beam-beam forces, we study the longitudinal dynamics of protons and anti-protons at injection and top energy in the Tevatron. Multi-turn data of the longitudinal profiles are captured to reveal information about frequencies of oscillation, and changes in the bunch distributions. Tomographic reconstruction is used to create phase space maps which are subsequently used to find the momentum distributions. Changes in these distributions for both proton and anti-proton beams are also followed through the operational cycle. We report too on the details of interesting dynamics and some unexpected findings.

    New type of high perveance electron guns with convex cathode has been developed. Three guns described in this article are built to provide transverse electron current density distributions needed for Electron Lenses for beam-beam compensation in the Tevatron collider. The current distribution can be controlled either by the gun geometry or by voltage on a special control electrode located near cathode. We present the designs of the guns and report results of beam measurements on the test bench. Because of their high current density and low transverse temperature of electrons, electron guns of this type can be used in electron cooling and beam-beam compensation devices

  17. Sextet Quark Physics at the Tevatron ?

    CERN Document Server

    White, Alan R

    2004-01-01

    A sextet quark sector of QCD, together with the sextet higgs mechanism, would produce a major change in the strong interaction above the electroweak scale. This change may already be evident in Cosmic Ray physics and, if so, dramatic effects are to be expected at the LHC. In this paper we discuss whether evidence for the sextet sector could be seen at the Tevatron. A major consequence of the connection between QCD and electroweak symmetry breaking is the strong coupling of the pomeron to the electroweak sector. At the Tevatron, the energy is too low to produce vector boson pairs directly via double pomeron exchange, but a number of small cross-section effects could be seen in diffractive, and diffractive related, processes involving $W^{\\pm}$ and $Z^0$ vector bosons. Probably, the most important feature that could be decisively established is that the production cross-section for $W^+W^-$ and $Z^0Z^0$ pairs has an anomalous component with event characteristics different from the Standard Model. This would be ...

  18. Bucket shaking stops bunch dancing in Tevatron

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Burov, A.; Tan, C.Y.; /Fermilab

    2011-03-01

    Bunches in Tevatron are known to be longitudinally unstable: their collective oscillations, also called dancing bunches, persist without any signs of decay. Typically, a damper is used to stop these oscillations, but recently, it was theoretically predicted that the oscillations can be stabilized by means of small bucket shaking. Dedicated measurements in Tevatron have shown that this method does stop the dancing. According to predictions of Refs. [2,3], the flattening of the bunch distribution at low amplitudes should make the bunch more stable against LLD. An experiment has been devised to flatten the distribution by modulating the RF phase at the low-amplitude synchrotron frequency for a few degrees of amplitude. These beam studies show that stabilisation really happens. After several consecutive shakings, the dancing disappears and the resulting bunch profile becomes smoother at the top. Although not shown in this report, sometimes a little divot forms at the centre of the distribution. These experiments confirm that resonant RF shaking flattens the bunch distribution at low amplitudes, and the dancing stops.

  20. Fermilab Tevatron high level rf accelerating systems

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Eight tuned rf cavities have been installed and operated in the F0 straight section of the Tevatron. Their mechanical placement along the beam line enables them to be operated for colliding beams as two independent groups of four cavities, group 1-4 accelerating antiprotons and group 5-8 accelerating protons. The only difference is that the spacing between cavities 4 and 5 was increased to stay clear of the F0 colliding point. The cavities can easily be rephased by switching cables in a low-level distribution system (fan-out) so that the full accelerating capability of all eight cavities can be used during fixed target operations. Likewise, the cables from capacitive probes on each cavity gap can be switched to proper lengths and summed in a fan-back system to give an rf signal representing the amplitude and phase as ''seen by the beam,'' separately for protons and antiprotons. Such signals have been used to phase lock the Tevatron to the Main Ring for synchronous transfer

  1. Diagnostics of the Fermilab Tevatron using an AC dipole

    2008-08-01

    The Fermilab Tevatron is currently the world's highest energy colliding beam facility. Its counter-rotating proton and antiproton beams collide at 2 TeV center-of-mass. Delivery of such intense beam fluxes to experiments has required improved knowledge of the Tevatron's beam optical lattice. An oscillating dipole magnet, referred to as an AC dipole, is one of such a tool to non-destructively assess the optical properties of the synchrotron. We discusses development of an AC dipole system for the Tevatron, a fast-oscillating (f {approx} 20 kHz) dipole magnet which can be adiabatically turned on and off to establish sustained coherent oscillations of the beam particles without affecting the transverse emittance. By utilizing an existing magnet and a higher power audio amplifier, the cost of the Tevatron AC dipole system became relatively inexpensive. We discuss corrections which must be applied to the driven oscillation measurements to obtain the proper interpretation of beam optical parameters from AC dipole studies. After successful operations of the Tevatron AC dipole system, AC dipole systems, similar to that in the Tevatron, will be build for the CERN LHC. We present several measurements of linear optical parameters (beta function and phase advance) for the Tevatron, as well as studies of non-linear perturbations from sextupole and octupole elements.

    2015-05-21

    An overview of recent top quark measurements using the full Run II data set of CDF or D0 at the Tevatron is presented. Results are complementary to the ones at the LHC. Recent measurements of the production cross section of top quarks in strong and electroweak production and of top quark production asymmetries are presented. The latter includes the measurement of the tt-bar production asymmetry by D0 in the dilepton decay channel. Within their uncertainties the results from all these measurements agree with their respective Standard Model expectation. Finally latest updates on measurements of the top quark mass are discussed, which at the time of the conference are the most precise determinations.

  3. Signatures of virtual LSPs at the TEVATRON

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Relatively light sneutrinos which are experimentally allowed and are not theoretically disfavored may significantly affect the currently popular search strategies for supersymmetric particles by decaying dominantly into an invisible channel. In certain cases the second lightest neutralino may also decay invisibly leading to two extra carriers of missing energy (in addition to the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP)) - the virtual LSPs (VLSPs). The lighter charginos which would be produced in pairs with reasonably large cross-sections at TEVATRON energies, decay dominantly into the hadronically quiet lepton + sneutrino (ET) modes with large branching ratios leading to interesting unlike sign dilepton events which are not swamped by the standard model background. The kinematical cuts required to eliminate the backgrounds from WW, Drell-Yan and τ pair production are discussed in detail. With 100 pb-1 luminosity 10-35 background free events can be found in a large region of the SUSY parameter space. (author). 14 refs, 3 figs, 2 tabs

    Fermilab began operating a re-designed satellite refrigerator systems in November 1993. Upgrades were installed to operate the Tevatron at a magnet temperature of 3.5 K, approximately 1K lower than the original design. Refrigerator upgrades included new valve boxes, larger reciprocating expanders, the installation of cold vapor compressors, new sub-atmospheric instrumentation and an entirely new distributed controls system. Cryogenic system reliability data for Colliding Physics Run 1B is presented emphasizing a failure analysis for each aspect of the upgrade. Comparison to data for Colliding Physics Run 1A (previous to upgrade) is presented to show the impact of a major system overhaul. New operational problems and their solutions are presented in detail

    We present results from CDF and D0 on Wγ and Zγ productions in p bar p collisions at √s = 1.8 TeV. The goal of the analyses is to test the non-abelian self-couplings of the W, Z and photon, one of the most direct consequences of the SU(2)L direct-product U(l)Y gauge symmetry. We present direct measurements of WWγ couplings and limits on ZZγ and Zγγ couplings, based on p bar p → lνγ + X and p bar p → llγ + X events, respectively, observed during the 1992--1993 run of the Fermilab Tevatron Collider

  6. Twenty years of diffraction at the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Results on diffractive particle interactions from the Fermilab Tevatron p-bar p collider are placed in perspective through a QCD inspired phenomenological approach, which exploits scaling and factorization properties observed in data. The results discussed are those obtained by the CDF Collaboration from a comprehensive set of single, double, and multi-gap soft and hard diffraction processes studied during the twenty year period since 1985, when the CDF diffractive program was proposed. The results obtained on soft and hard diffraction exhibit regularities that point to the QCD nature of the Pomeron. The most striking feature of the data is the s-independence of the single diffractive dσ/dM2 differential cross-section. This scaling behaviour provides a clue to understanding the Pomeron as a composite structure built up from a combination of gluons and/or quarks with the quantum numbers of the vacuum in accordance with QCD color constraints

  7. Electroweak boson pair production at the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Preliminary results from CDF and D OE on Wγ, Zγ and WW, WZ, ZZ boson pair production in √s = 1.8 TeV anti p-p collisions from the 1992--93 collider run are presented. Direct limits on CP-conserving and CP-violating WWγ, WWZ, ZZγ and Zγγ anomalous couplings have been obtained. The results are consistent with Standard Model expectations. In the static limit, the direct experimental limits on WWγ and ZZγ anomalous couplings are related to bounds on the higher-order static (transition) EM moments of the W(Z) bosons. Expectations from the on-going and future Tevatron collider runs are discussed

  8. Scientific Opportunity: the Tevatron and the LHC

    CERN Multimedia

    2010-01-01

    The press makes much of the competition between CERN’s LHC and Fermilab’s Tevatron in the search for the Higgs boson. This competitive aspect is real, and probably adds spice to the scientific exploration, but for us such reporting often feels like spilling the entire pepper shaker over a fine meal. The media’s emphasis on competition obscures the more important substance of our long-standing collaboration in scientific discovery.   Our laboratories and our communities have worked together for decades. Europeans have contributed greatly to the Tevatron’s many successes, including the discovery of the top quark, the discovery of fast oscillations in the decay of strange B mesons and the many searches for new phenomena. Americans have contributed to many programs at CERN, notably the extraordinary precision measurements of LEP, and more recently construction of the LHC accelerator and detectors. Fermilab scientists played a vital role throughout 2009 in...

    Au moment ou dans plusieurs pays on travaille a refondre les programmes d'etudes, tant au primaire qu'au secondaire, l'interet pour le transfert renait. Un des concepts fondamentaux en apprentissage consiste en l'habilete a reutiliser de facon consciente et efficace un acquis d'une situation a une autre situation. Cette recherche emane de preoccupations professionnelles au moment ou le chercheur etait enseignant au secondaire. Au cours de ces annees, il lui a ete possible de constater que plusieurs eleves percevaient difficilement les liens presents entre les disciplines mathematiques et scientifiques. Des travaux en psychologie cognitive et plus particulierement selon une perspective du traitement de l'information ont servi de cadre de reference pour evaluer et analyser les capacites de transfert aupres d'eleves de 4e secondaire. Ce cadre de reference permet de formuler le principal objectif qui est de mieux comprendre le processus de transfert chez des eleves en situation de resolution de problemes scientifiques. Cette these s'interesse donc au transfert en tant que phenomene important du processus d'apprentissage au sens de l'integration. La methode de recherche choisie, de nature qualitative, est principalement axee sur l'evaluation de la capacite a transferer des connaissances lors d'une epreuve et d'un entretien. Pour evaluer ce potentiel de transfert, nous avons elabore deux outils: une epreuve en mathematiques et en sciences et un guide d'entretien. Pour la passation de l'epreuve, le chercheur a pu compter sur la collaboration de 130 sujets provenant de deux ecoles. L'entretien complete la prise de donnees avec 13 sujets ayant accepte de poursuivre l'etude. Les donnees recueillies par ces instruments font ensuite l'objet d'une analyse de contenu. En premier lieu, les verbatims de l'epreuve et de l'entretien ont ete transcrits, puis codifies. La correction des reponses fournies pour les problemes resolus s'est faite a partir d'une grille d

    For more than two decades the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider was the centerpiece of the world's high energy physics program. The collider was arguably one of the most complex research instruments ever to reach the operation stage and is widely recognized for numerous physics discoveries and for many technological breakthroughs. In this article we outline the historical background that led to the construction of the Tevatron Collider, the strategy applied to evolution of performance goals...

  13. Heavy Quarks Above the Top at the Tevatron

    2008-01-01

    Recent developments in models with warped extra dimensions have opened new possibilities for vector-like quark studies at hadron colliders. These new vector-like quarks can mix sizably with light Standard Model quarks without violating low energy constraints. We perform a model-independent analysis to determine the Tevatron reach in the search for new quarks. We find that the Tevatron has great potential to observe such quarks via their electroweak single production due to their mixing with v...

  16. Updated overview of the Tevatron control system

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A single unified control system is used for all of the Fermilab accelerators and storage rings, from the LINAC to the Tevatron and antiproton source. A review of the general features is given - these include a 'host' system consisting of a number of minicomputers integrated with many distributed microprocessors in a variety of subsystems, usage of an in-house developed protocol, GAS, for communication between the two classes of machines, and a Parameter Page program, designed in conjunction with the system database, which allows a wide variety of quantities to be read and set in a coherent fashion. Recent developments include the implementation of a block transfer and 'fast time plot' facility through CAMAC, inclusion of several new computers in the host, a better understanding of system throughput, greatly improved reliability, advent of programs which sequence a large number of independent operations, and the construction of new hardware subsystems. Possible future system upgrades will be briefly presented. A summary of the utilization of a quite large software staff, at a time when the system is no longer under construction, will be discussed

    2011-01-01

    We consider the physics and collider phenomenology of quirks that transform nontrivially under QCD color, SU(2)_W as well as an SU(N)_{ic} infracolor group. Our main motivation is to show that the recent Wjj excess observed by CDF naturally arises in quirky models. The basic pattern is that several different quirky states can be produced, some of which beta-decay during or after spin-down, leaving the lightest electrically neutral quirks to hadronize into a meson that subsequently decays into gluon jets. We analyze LEP II, Tevatron, UA2, and electroweak precision constraints, identifying the simplest viable models: scalar quirks ("squirks") transforming as color triplets, SU(2)_W triplets and singlets, all with vanishing hypercharge. We calculate production cross sections, weak decay, spin-down, meson decay rates, and estimate efficiencies. The novel features of our quirky model includes: quirkonium decay proceeds into a pair of gluon jets, without a b-jet component; there is essentially no associated Zjj or ...

There may be either underlying event from low energy QCD deposition resulting from quirky spin-down and/or qualitatively modified event kinematics from infraglueball emission.

    We combine searches by the CDF and D0 Collaborations for the standard model Higgs boson with mass in the range 90--200 GeV/c^2 produced in the gluon-gluon fusion, WH, ZH, ttbarH, and vector boson fusion processes, and decaying in the H->bbbar, H->W^+W^-, H->ZZ, H->\\tau^+\\tau^-, and H->\\gamma \\gamma\\ modes. The data correspond to integrated luminosities of up to 10 fb^-1 and were collected at the Fermilab Tevatron in ppbar collisions at sqrt(s)=1.96 TeV. The searches are also interpreted in the context of fermiophobic and fourth generation models. We observe a significant excess of events in the mass range between 115 and 140 GeV/c^2. The local significance corresponds to 3.1 standard deviations at m_H=125 GeV/c^2, consistent with the mass of the Higgs boson observed at the LHC. Furthermore, we separately combine searches for H->bbbar, H->W^+W^-, H->\\tau^+\\tau^-, and H->\\gamma \\gamma. The observed signal strengths in all channels are consistent with the presence of a standard model Higgs boson with a mass of 1...

  1. Tevatron energy and luminosity upgrades beyond the Main Injector

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Fermilab Tevatron will be the world's highest energy hadron collider until the LHC is commissioned, it has the world's highest energy fixed target beams, and Fermilab will be the leading high energy physics laboratory in the US for the foreseeable future. Following the demise of the SSC, a number of possible upgrades to the Tevatron complex, beyond construction of the Main Injector, are being discussed. Using existing technology, it appears possible to increase the luminosity of the bar pp Collider to at least 1033cm-2sec-1 (Tevatron-Star) and to increase the beam energy to 2 TeV (DiTevatron). Fixed target beam of energy about 1.5 TeV could also be delivered. Leaving the existing Tevatron in the tunnel and constructing bypasses around the collider halls would allow simultaneous 800 GeV fixed target and √s = 4 TeV collider operation. These upgrades would give Fermilab an exciting physics program which would be complementary to the LHC, and they would lay the groundwork for the construction of a possible post-LHC ultra-high energy hadron collider

    2002-04-29

    Between 1992 and 1996, the CDF and D0 experiments have collected data samples of 110 pb{sup -1} each of p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron. In the year 2001 the Tevatron commenced p{bar p} collisions again at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV with the goal of delivering an integrated luminosity of 1 fb{sup -1} per year. In the mean time the CDF and D0 detectors have undergone substantial upgrades which allow for a rich B physics program with unique capabilities. In this paper we discuss recent results and the B Physics prospects at the Tevatron with 2 fb{sup -1} of data (Run IIa) or 15 fb{sup -1} of data (Run IIa+Run IIb).

    The experiments at Run 2 of the Tevatron have each accumulated over 1 inverse femtobarn of high-transverse momentum data. Such a dataset allows for the first precision (i.e. comparisons between theory and experiment at the few percent level) tests of QCD at a hadron collider. While the Large Hadron Collider has been designed as a discovery machine, basic QCD analyses will still need to be performed to understand the working environment. The Tevatron-for-LHC workshop was conceived as a communication link to pass on the expertise of the Tevatron and to test new analysis ideas coming from the LHC community. The TeV4LHC QCD Working Group focussed on important aspects of QCD at hadron colliders: jet definitions, extraction and use of Parton Distribution Functions, the underlying event, Monte Carlo tunes, and diffractive physics.

    2012-01-01

    The mass of the top quark (\\mtop) is a fundamental parameter of the standard model (SM). Currently, its most precise measurements are performed by the CDF and D0 collaborations at the Fermilab Tevatron $p\\bar p$ collider at a centre-of-mass energy of $\\sqrt s=1.96 \\TeV$. We review the most recent of those measurements, performed on data samples of up to 8.7 \\fb\\ of integrated luminosity. The Tevatron combination using up to 5.8 fb$^{-1}$ of data results in a preliminary world average top quark mass of $m_{\\rm top} = 173.2 \\pm 0.9$ GeV. This corresponds to a relative precision of about 0.54%. We conclude with an outlook of anticipated precision the final measurement of \\mtop at the Tevatron.

  13. Optimization of the Helical Orbits in the Tevatron

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Alexahin, Y.; /Fermilab

    2007-06-01

    To avoid multiple head-on collisions the proton and antiproton beams in the Tevatron move along separate helical orbits created by 7 horizontal and 8 vertical electrostatic separators. Still the residual long-range beam-beam interactions can adversely affect particle motion at all stages from injection to collision. With increased intensity of the beams it became necessary to modify the orbits in order to mitigate the beam-beam effect on both antiprotons and protons. This report summarizes the work done on optimization of the Tevatron helical orbits, outlines the applied criteria and presents the achieved results.

  14. Bucket Shaking Stops Bunch Oscillations In The Tevatron

    CERN Document Server

    Tan, C Y

    2011-01-01

    Bunches in the Tevatron are known to exhibit longitudinal oscillations which persist indefinitely. These oscillations are colloquially called "dancing bunches". Although the dancing bunches do not cause single bunch emittance growth or beam loss at injection, it leads to bunch lengthening at collisions. In operations, a longitudinal damper has been built which stops this dance and damps out coupled bunch modes. Recent theoretical work predicts that the dance can also be stopped by an appropriate change in the bunch distribution. This paper shows the Tevatron experiments which support this theory.

    We report the results of searches for new physics in events with two photons and large missing transverse energy collected with both detectors at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. Several models of physics beyond the Standard Model motivate searches in this final state, in particular supersymmetry (SUSY) with gauge-mediated supersymmetry breaking. The D0 collaboration interprets also its search in the framework of universal extra dimensions (UED) with gravity-mediated Kaluza-Klein excitation decays. The results presented use 2.6 fb{sup -1} (CDF) and 6.3 fb{sup -1} (D0) of data collected at the Fermilab Tevatron collider.

  17. Recherche de Nouvelle Physique dans les événements à quatre quarks top avec le détecteur ATLAS auprès du LHC

    CERN Document Server

    Simon, Dorian; Calvet, David

    Despite its numerous success, like the recent discovery of a boson compatible with the BEH boson, the Standard Model shows some deficiencies. Those lead to a search for New Physics, which may take, among others, the form of extra space dimensions. In this thesis, four-top-quarks events arising from a such model, the 2UED/RPP, are searched for. The 2UED/RPP has two universal extra space dimensions compactified under the Real Projective Plane geometry. This search uses a signature with at least two same-sign leptons (electrons and/or muons). Two successive analyses are presented. The first one uses the first 14.3 fb$^{-1}$ recorded during 2012 proton-proton collisions occurring with a collision center-of-mass referential energy of 8 TeV. In the case where both extra dimensions have the same compactification radius and where the branching ratio of $A^{(1\\,;\\,1)}$ in $t\\bar{t}$ is 100%, this analysis puts a lower observed (expected) limit on $m_\\mathrm{KK}$ (main model parameter) at 0.90 TeV (0.92 TeV) with a co...

    2007-06-15

    The main purpose of the ATLAS experiment is the understanding of the underlying mechanisms that drive the breaking of the electro-weak symmetry through the discovery of Higgs bosons. An important element to achieve this aim was the design of an electromagnetic calorimeter able to investigate the decay channels: H {yields} {gamma}{gamma} and H {yields} 4e. The high performance of the calorimeter will allow us to get a better accuracy on the measuring values of W and top masses which is essential to indirectly constrain the mass of the Higgs. In the same way, accurate measurements of top and W properties during the decays of top and tWb vertex will be necessary to question the standard model and to see beyond. The author has been working for 9 years in the ATLAS project, he has been involved in the design, construction, qualification and testing phases of the electromagnetic calorimeter of ATLAS. This document is a detailed presentation of the calorimeter, of its qualification and of its expectations when LHC is operating. This document is organized into 4 chapters: 1) assets and weaknesses of the standard model, 2) the ATLAS experiment, 3) the electromagnetic calorimeter, and 4) accurate measurements with ATLAS. This document presented before an academic board will allow its author to manage research works and particularly to tutor thesis students. (A.C.)

Ce fait s’explique probablement par deux caractéristiques principales du discours parlé: la structure complexe de sa matérialité et les fonctions variées de différentes pratiques langagières. C’est pourquoi le présent numéro réunit les articles basés sur les approches actuelles du discours parlé et sur les pratiques langagières spécifiques. Le volume est introduit par deux articles interdisciplinaires: Peter Garrard et Ahmed Samrah présentent le domaine de la pathologie du langage en donnant une revue fouillée sur les approches actuelles de l’analyse linguistique lors de la détection de la maladie d’Alzheimer, tandis que Harry Hollien donne un aperçu structuré sur le domaine de la phonétique judiciaire destiné à dévoiler l’identité des locuteurs et de détecter la déception dans le discours parlé. Les analyses explorant l’acquisition du langage commencent par l’article de Katharina Zipser qui examine la progression de structures grammaticales en les mettant en comparaison avec la compétence des apprenants et continuent par l’étude de Meta Lah proposant une évaluation des documents audiovisuels proposés aux apprenants de langue étrangère.

    2011-01-01

    Synchrotron radiation has been used for many years as a beam diagnostic at electron accelerators. It is not normally associated with proton accelerators as the intensity of the radiation is too weak to make detection practical. However, if one utilizes the radiation originating near the edge of a bending magnet, or from a short magnet, the rapidly changing magnetic field serves to enhance the wavelengths shorter than the cutoff wavelength, which for more recent high energy proton accelerators such as Fermilab's Tevatron, tends to be visible light. This paper discusses the implementation at the Tevatron of two devices. A transverse beam profile monitor images the synchrotron radiation coming from the proton and antiproton beams separately and provides profile data for each bunch. A second monitor measures the low-level intensity of beam in the abort gaps which poses a danger to both the accelerator's superconducting magnets and the silicon detectors of the high energy physics experiments. Comparisons of measur...

  15. FERMILAB: Tevatron upgrade; Magnetic precession in bent crystals

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Fermilab accelerator complex is in the middle of a major upgrade to increase the luminosity beyond the original design goal. During Phase I of this upgrade, there have been major modifications to the Tevatron. These modifications were commissioned at the start of the latest collider run and include the installation of electrostatic separators to separate the orbits of the stored beams and new low beta insertions to squeeze the colliding proton and antiproton beams at both experiment interaction regions. These modifications have already enabled the Tevatron to achieve a record peak luminosity of 6.93 x 1030 per sq cm per s and a record weekly integrated luminosity of 1060 inverse nanobarns. The peak goal for the present run of 5.0 x 1030 has already been exceeded

    2010-01-01

    Central exclusive production (CEP) processes in high-energy proton -- (anti)proton collisions offer a very promising framework within which to study both novel aspects of QCD and new physics signals. Among the many interesting processes that can be studied in this way, those involving the production of heavy (c,b) quarkonia and gamma gamma states have sufficiently well understood theoretical properties and sufficiently large cross sections that they can serve as `standard candle' processes with which we can benchmark predictions for new physics CEP at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. Motivated by the broad agreement with theoretical predictions of recent CEP measurements at the Fermilab Tevatron, we perform a detailed quantitative study of heavy quarkonia (chi and eta) and gamma gamma production at the Tevatron, RHIC and LHC, paying particular attention to the various uncertainties in the calculations. Our results confirm the rich phenomenology that these production processes offer at present and future high-e...

    We present a search for supersymmetry in the R-parity violating resonant production and decay of smuons and muon-sneutrinos in the channels smuon->neutralino_1 muon, smuon->neutralino_2 muon, and muon-sneutrino->chargino muon. We analyzed 0.38 fb^-1 of integrated luminosity collected between April 2002 and August 2004 with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The observed number of events is in agreement with the standard model expectation, and we calculate 95% C.L. limits on the slepton production cross section times branching fraction to gaugino plus muon, as a function of slepton and gaugino masses. In the framework of minimal supergravity, we set limits on the coupling parameter lambda'_211, extending significantly previous results obtained in Run I of the Tevatron and at the CERN LEP collider.

    The latest measurements of the cross sections for singly-produced top quarks at the Fermilab Tevatron are presented. The small expected signals and the large, uncertain backgrounds require careful event selection, sophisticated methods for separating signal events from background events, and data-based background predictions and fits.

  1. Test of QCD in multijet final states at the Tevatron

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kumar, Ashish; SUNY, Stony Brook; /SUNY, Stony Brook

    2011-10-01

    In this contribution, some of the recent QCD results on jet production from the CDF and D0 experiments in Run II of the Tevatron are discussed. In particular, results include cross section measurements for dijet and trijet production, study of jet substructure and measurements of W/Z+jets cross sections. The measurements are compared with the theoretical predictions. The QCD program at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider revolves around the jet physics. Jets are collimated sprays of hadrons generated by the fragmentation of partons originating from the hard scattering. The measurements of jets production cross section at the Tevatron provide stringent test of perturbative QCD predictions, information on the strong coupling constant, {alpha}s, and constraints on proton parton distribution functions, PDFs. The deviations from the pQCD predictions could translate into a hint of new physics. In addition, these processes form sizable backgrounds to both, the Standard Model (SM) and beyond SM physics processes. Therefore, good understanding of jets production is essential to perform precise physics measurements or searches for new physics phenomena. In this contribution, a review of some recent QCD results from the CDF [1] and D0 [2] experiments is presented. Various analyses use proton-antiproton collision data from the Fermilab Tevatron at the center of mass energy {radical}s = 1.96 TeV corresponding to integrated luminosities of 0.7 fb{sup -1} to 8 fb{sup -1}. The results are corrected for the experimental effects and presented at the 'particle level'. The theory predictions are corrected for the hadronization and underlying effects which are obtained from the parton shower Monte Carlo (MC) simulations.

    Recently published benchmark models have contained rather heavy superpartners. To test the robustness of this result, several benchmark models have been constructed based on theoretically well-motivated approaches, particularly string-based ones. These include variations on anomaly and gauge-mediated models, as well as gravity mediation. The resulting spectra often have light gauginos that are produced in significant quantities at the Tevatron collider, or will be at a 500 GeV linear collider...

    A bunch-by-bunch beam damper has been developed for the Fermilab Tevatron. The system reduces betatron oscillation amplitudes and incorporates some useful machine diagnostics. The device is programmable via look-up tables so the output is an arbitrary function, on a bunch-by-bunch basis, of the beam displacement. We are presently using this feature to measure the betatron tune throughout the acceleration cycle. 4 refs

    Central exclusive production (CEP) processes in high-energy hadron collisions offer a very promising framework for studying both novel aspects of QCD and new physics signals. We report on the results of a theoretical study of the CEP of heavy quarkonia (chi and eta) at the Tevatron, RHIC and LHC. These processes provide important information on the physics of bound states and can probe the current ideas and methods of QCD, such as effective field theories and lattice QCD.

  17. Pressure Field Study of the Tevatron Cold Compressors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Fermilab Tevatron cryogenic system utilizes high-speed centrifugal cold compressors, manufactured by Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. (IHI), for high-energy operations. The compressor is designed to pump 60 g/sec of 3.6 K saturated helium vapor at a pressure ratio of 2.8, with an off-design range of 40 to 70 g/sec. Operating speeds are between 40,000 and 95,000 rpm, with a speed of 80,000 rpm at the design point. Different heat loads and magnet quench performance of each of the twenty-four satellite refrigerators dictates different process pressure and flow rates of the cold compressors. Reducing the process flow rate can cause the centrifugal cold compressor to stop pumping and subsequently surge. Tests have been conducted at the Cryogenic Test Facility at Fermilab to map the pressure field and appropriate efficiency of the IHI hydrodynamic cold compressor. The information allows tuning of each of the twenty-four Tevatron satellite refrigerators to avoid cold compressor operation near the surge and choke lines. A new impeller has also been tested. The Tevatron cold compressor pressure field and efficiency data with the new impeller are presented in this paper

  19. T anti-T Production at the Tevatron: Event Selection and Cross Section Measurement

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    O' Neil, Dugan C.; /Simon Fraser U.

    2007-03-01

    The Fermilab Tevatron is currently the only collider capable of producing and studying top quarks. The dominant mechanism for top quark production at the Tevatron is t{bar t} production via the strong interaction. The precise measurement of the cross section of this process is a test of the QCD prediction. In Run II of the Tevatron it should be possible to achieve an experimental error on this cross section which is comparable or better than the current theoretical precision. This paper presents the basic event selection criteria for t{bar t} events at the Tevatron and the latest measurements of the t{bar t} cross section.

  20. Managing discovery risks--A Tevatron case study

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    To meet the increasing need for higher performance, Management of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory has undertaken various projects to improve systems associated with the Tevatron high-energy particle collider located at Batavia, Illinois. One of the larger projects is the Tevatron Beam Position Monitor (BPM) system. The objective of this project is to replace the existing BPM electronics and software system that was originally installed during early 1980s, along with the original construction of the Tevatron.The original system consists of 236 beam position monitors located around the underground tunnel of the accelerator. Above ground control systems are attached to these monitors using pickup cables. When the Tevatron collider is operational, signals received from the BPMs are used to perform a number of control and diagnostic tasks. The original system can only capture the proton signals from the collider. The new system, when fully operational, will be able to capture combined proton and antiproton signals and will be able to separate the antiproton signal from the combined signal at high resolution. This significant enhancement was beyond the range of technical capabilities when the Tevatron was constructed about two decades ago. To take advantage of exceptional progress made in the hardware and software area in past two decades, Department of Energy approved funding of the BPM electronics and software replacement project. The approximate length of the project is sixteen months with a budget of four million dollars not including overhead, escalation, and contingencies. Apart from cost and schedule risks, there are two major risks associated with this research and development project. The primary risk is the risk of discovery. Since the Tevatron beam path is highly complex, BPMs have to acquire and process a large amount of data. In this environment, analysis of data to separate antiproton signals is even more complex.

Les résultats de terrain montrent l'obtention de rendements et profits plus élevés lorsqu'on utilise le compost. Les résultats de la fonction de production Cobb-Douglas prouvent que l'utilisation du compost est statistiquement significative pour expliquer la variation de rendement de la laitue et que le compost est l'intrant le plus productif. D'autres résultats montrent que le compost fournit la matière organique utile au sol et que les besoins d'irrigation en eau de la culture sont réduits grâce à l'utilisation du compost. Par conséquent, malgré le fait que l'application du compost demande une main-d'oeuvre beaucoup plus élevée, son utilisation est généralement bénéfique pour les agriculteurs vivant aux alentours de Yaoundé. Les programmes de vulgarisation de cet intrant pour encourager son adoption devraient donc figurer parmi les points prioritaires dans la politique agricole du gouvernement camerounais.

  4. The du Bois sign.

    2011-03-01

    According to the current literature, the term "du Bois sign" characterizes the condition of a shortened fifth finger as a symptom of congenital syphilis, Down syndrome, dyscrania, and encephalic malformation. Modern medical dictionaries and text books attribute the eponym to the French gynecologist Paul Dubois (1795-1871). Yet, a literature analysis revealed incorrect references to the person and unclear definitions of the term. Our findings showed that the origin of the term is based on observations made by the Swiss dermatologist Charles du Bois (1874-1947) in connection with congenital syphilis. In addition, a further eponymical fifth finger sign is closely associated with the du Bois sign. In conclusion, the du Bois sign has only limited diagnostic value and is frequently occurring in the normal healthy population. PMID:21263293

    The top quark is the most recently discovered quark. Relatively little is known about its properties so far. Due to its very large mass of about 175 GeV/c{sup 2}, the top quark behaves differently from all other quarks and provides a unique environment for tests of the Standard Model. Furthermore, it is believed to yield sensitivity to physics beyond the Standard Model. This report discusses the latest measurements and studies of top quark properties and rare decays from the Tevatron in Run II.

    The production of single-top quarks occurs via the weak interaction at the Fermilab Tevatron proton-antiproton collider. Single top quark events are selected in the lepton+jets final state by CDF and D0 and in the missing transverse energy plus jets final state by CDF. Multivariate classifiers separate the s-channel and t-channel single-top signals from the large backgrounds. The combination of CDF and D0 results leads to the first observation of the s-channel mode of single top quark production. The t-channel and single top combined cross sections have also been measured.

Results from differential cross-section measurements and searches for new physics in t{bar t} production and top quark decays are available. Electroweak production of single top quarks has been searched for. The results from all these analyses, using typically 200 pb{sup -1} of data, are presented.

    Recent results on non-SUSY searches at the Fermilab Tevatron pp-bar collider are summarised. All the analysis are based on the complete data samples recorded by both the CDF and D0 collaborations during the 1992-1995 running period. Searches for new neutral heavy vector bosons, leptoquarks, di-jet mass resonances, and associated production of new heavy scalars together with vector bosons show no evidence for new physics. Consequently, the results have been interpreted in terms of 95% confidence level limits on production cross sections and new particle masses. (author)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Hadron colliders are providing valuable opportunities for studying the influence of the strong force on electroweak interactions in both the perturbative and non-perturbative regions. At the Fermilab Tevatron, analysis by CDF and D0 of p anti p → W/Z + X events at √s = 1.8 TeV have been used to test a variety of leading order and next-to-leading order QCD predictions. Among the many promising benefits are improvements of parton distribution functions at high Q2 , demonstration of soft gluon radiation patterns which survive hadronization, and tests of perturbative QCD and resummation calculations

    The ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) experiment will study ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in CERN as of 2005. An extensive R and D programme has been carried out on the dimuon spectrometer tracking chambers at the Nuclear Physics Institute in Orsay. Three multiwire proportional chamber prototypes with segmented cathodes, including a full-scale 1 m{sup 2} version, were constructed. In this thesis, the experimental tests are presented along with the simulations used to understand and optimize the detectors' performances. The prototypes were tested several times at the PS and SPS accelerators. The aims were to validate the choices made in terms of mechanical construction, geometrical parameters, gas mixture and read-out electronics. Analysis of the large amount of data collected has shown that the performances of this type of detector fulfill the required specifications. The results concerning the detectors' characteristics, spatial resolution efficiency, gain and homogeneity are given. Spatial resolutions of less than thirty microns were obtained. In parallel with the in-beam tests, several simulations have been developed in order to gain a better understanding of the detectors' response. They allowed, in particular, to define the segmentation of the cathode plane, to study the position reconstruction algorithm and to establish the future electronics specifications. (author)

    2005-01-01

    We calculate one-loop weak corrections via the order $\\alpha_{\\mathrm{S}}^2\\alpha_{\\mathrm{W}}$ to the partonic cross section of two jets at Tevatron and prove that they can be large. At high transverse energy of the jets they lead to detectable effects, e.g., up to -20% in the region were CDF had found in Run 1 data an apparent excess with respect to theory predictions for inclusive jet production through next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD. While the latter may be explained by an appropriate re-parameterisation of the gluon Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs) at medium/large Bjorken $x$, our results show that, after ${\\cal O}(\\alpha_{\\mathrm{S}}^2\\alpha_{\\mathrm{W}})$ effects are taken into account, current PDF sets may no longer be appropriate to fit Tevatron data. As an example, for the current highest $E_T$ reach at Run 2, ${\\cal O}(\\alpha_{\\mathrm{S}}^2\\alpha_{\\mathrm{W}})$ effects can be as large as -30%.

  12. A disoriented chiral condensate search at the Fermilab Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    MiniMax (Fermilab T-864) was a small test/experiment at the Tevatron designed to search for disoriented chiral condensates (DCC) in the forward direction. Relativistic quantum field theory treats the vacuum as a medium, with bulk properties characterized by long-range order parameters. This has led to suggestions that regions of open-quotes disoriented vacuumclose quotes might be formed in high-energy collision processes. In particular, the approximate chiral symmetry of QCD could lead to regions of vacuum which have chiral order parameters disoriented to directions which have non-zero isospin, i.e. disoriented chiral condensates. A signature of DCC is the resulting distribution of the fraction of produced pions which are neutral. The MiniMax detector at the C0 collision region of the Tevatron was a telescope of 24 multi-wire proportional chambers (MWPC's) with a lead converter behind the eighth MWPC, allowing the detection of charged particles and photon conversions in an acceptance approximately a circle of radius 0.6 in pseudorapidity-azimuthal-angle space, centered on pseudorapidity η ∼ 4. An electromagnetic calorimeter was located behind the MWPC telescope, and hadronic calorimeters and scintillator were located in the upstream anti-proton direction to tag diffractive events

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1992-12-31

    This document which is labeled a final report consists of several different items. The first is a proposal for a detector to be developed for beauty physics. The detector is proposed for the Fermilab Tevatron, and would be designed to measure mixing reactions, rare decay modes, and even CP violation in hadron collider beauty production. The general outline of the work proposed is given, and an estimate of the time to actually design the detector is presented, along with proposed changes to the Tevatron to accommodate the system. A preliminary report on an experiment to verify a reported observation of a 17 keV neutrino in tritium decay is presented. The present results in the decay spectra actually show a depression below expected levels, which is not consistent with a massive neutrino. Additional interest has been shown in finishing an electrostatic beta spectrometer which was started several years previously. The instrument uses hemispherical electrostatic electric fields to retard electrons emitted in tritium decay, allowing measurement of integral spectra. The design goal has a 5 eV energy resolution, which may be achievable. A new PhD student is pursuing this experiment. Also the report contains a proposal for additional work in the field of non-perturbative quantum field theory by the theoretical group at OU. The work which is proposed will be applied to electroweak and strong interactions, as well as to quantum gravitational phenomena.

Individual searches are discussed and classified according to their sensitivity. Primary channels rely on the associate production with a vector boson (WH or ZH and the H → bb¯ $H o bar b$ decay channel (favored for MH ≲ 135 GeV/c2. Event selection is based on the leptonic decay of the vector boson and the identification of b–hadron enriched jets. Each individual channel is sensitive, for MH = 115 GeV/c2, to less than 5 times the SM expected cross section and the most sensitive channels can exclude a production cross section of 2.3×σHSM Secondary channels rely on a variety of final states. Although they are from 2 to 5 times less sensitive than any primary channel, they contribute to the Tevatron combination and, in some cases, they pose strong constrains on exotic Higgs boson models.

  15. Cryogenic testing and analysis associated with Tevatron lower temperature operation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An upgrade of the Tevatron cryogenic system was installed and commissioned in 1993 to allow lower temperature operation. As a result, higher energy operation is possible. Following the installation and initial commissioning, it was decided to continue the current colliding beam physics at the previous energy of 900 GeV. This has allowed us to perform parasitic lower temperature tests in the Tevatron over the last year and a half. This paper presents the results of operational experiences and thermal and hydraulic testing which has taken place. The primary goal of the testing is to better understand the operation of the cold compressor system, associated instrumentation, and the performance of the existing magnet system during lower temperature operation. This will lead to a tentatively scheduled higher energy test run in the fall of 1995. The test results have shown that more elaborate controlling methods are necessary in order to achieve reliable system operation. Fortunately, our new satellite refrigerator controls system is capable of the expansion necessary to reach our goal. New features are being added to the control system which will allow for more intelligent control and better diagnostics for component monitoring and trending

    The Tevatron is the world's first large superconducting accelerator. With its construction, we gained the dual opportunities to advance the state of the art in accelerator technology with the machine itself and in particle physics with the experiments that became possible in a higher energy regime. There have been 43 experiments in the Tevatron fixed target program. Many of these are better described as experimental programs, each with a broad range of physics goals and results, and more than 100 collaborating physicists and engineers. The results of this program are three-fold: (1) new technologies in accelerators, beams and detectors which advanced the state of the art; (2) new experimental results published in the refereed physics journals; and (3) newly trained scientists who are both the next generation of particle physicists and an important part of the scientific, technical and educational backbone of the country as a whole. In this book they compile these results. There are sections from each experiment including what their physics goals and results were, what papers were published, and which students have received degrees. Summaries of these results from the program as a whole are quite interesting, but the physics results from this program are too broad to summarize globally. The most important of the results appear in later sections of this booklet.

The MiniMax detector at the C0 collision region of the Tevatron was a telescope of 24 multi-wire proportional chambers (MWPC`s) with a lead converter behind the eighth MWPC, allowing the detection of charged particles and photon conversions in an acceptance approximately a circle of radius 0.6 in pseudorapidity-azimuthal-angle space, centered on pseudorapidity {eta} {approx} 4. An electromagnetic calorimeter was located behind the MWPC telescope, and hadronic calorimeters and scintillator were located in the upstream anti-proton direction to tag diffractive events.

  20. Tevatron Wjj Anomaly and the baryonic $Z'$ solution

    Cheung, Kingman

    2011-01-01

    The latest CDF anomaly, the excess of dijet events in the invariant-mass window 120-160 GeV in associated production with a $W$ boson, can be explained by a baryonic $Z'$ model, in which the $Z'$ boson has negligible couplings to leptons. Although this $Z'$ model is hardly subject to the Drell-Yan constraint from Tevatron, it is, however, subject to the dijet data from UA2 ($\\sqrt{s} = 630$ GeV) and to the precision measurements at LEP through the mixing with the SM $Z$ boson. We show that under these constraints this model can still explain the excess in the $M_{jj} \\sim 120 - 160$ GeV window, as well as the claimed cross section $\\sigma(W Z') \\sim 4$ pb. Implications at the Tevatron would be the associated production of $\\gamma Z',\\; Z Z'$, and $Z'Z'$ with the $Z' \\to jj$. We show that the $\\gamma Z' \\to \\gamma jj$ channel could be promising.

    A VME-based data acquisition system for beam-loss monitors has been developed and is in use in the Tevatron and Main Injector accelerators at the Fermilab complex.

  6. QCD analysis of W- and Z-boson production at Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Recent measurements of the W-boson charge asymmetry and of the Z-boson production cross sections, performed at the Tevatron collider in Run II by the D0 and CDF collaborations, are studied using the HERAFitter framework to assess their impact on the proton parton distribution functions (PDFs). The Tevatron measurements, together with deep-inelastic scattering data from HERA, are included in a QCD analysis performed at next-to-leading order, and compared to the predictions obtained using other PDF sets from different groups. Good agreement between measurements and theoretical predictions is observed. The Tevatron data provide significant constraints on the d-valence quark distribution

  7. Experiments with Separated Beams in Run I at the Tevatron Collider

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    During the Tevatron collider Run I, a great deal of effort was spent understanding the luminosity at the two colliding detectors. In collaboration with the Tevatron operations group, the DZero experiment recorded data while the colliding beams were intentionally separated by several beam widths in the horizontal and vertical planes. The resulting luminosity profiles contain a great deal of information about the lattice and beam size parameters at the low-beta focus, which can be extracted by fitting in a variety of ways. This paper will review details of these separated beam measurements and present results on Tevatron lattice parameter and luminosity determination

  11. Phase modulation of the bucket stops bunch oscillations at the Fermilab Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Bunches in the Tevatron are known to exhibit longitudinal oscillations which persist indefinitely. These oscillations are colloquially called 'dancing bunches.' Although the dancing proton bunches do not cause single bunch emittance growth or beam loss at injection, they lead to bunch lengthening at collisions. In Tevatron operations, a longitudinal damper has been built which stops this dance and damps out coupled bunch modes. Recent theoretical work predicts that the dance can also be stopped by an appropriate change in the bunch distribution. This paper describes the Tevatron experiments which support this theory.

  13. Prospects for measuring CP violation, B0s mixing and rare B decays at the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Fermilab Tevatron has already yielded a rich program of measurements in the b-quark sector. Here we outline the prospects for future b measurements at the Tevatron, paying particular attention to CP violation and Bs0 mixing. In the Main Injector era, Tevatron Run II is expected to yield 2 fb-1 of integrated luminosity for both the CDF and D0 detectors. After Run II, even larger datasets are expected for the current collider detectors, and a dedicated B physics experiment may be constructed as well

  14. A simulation of modulational diffusion for the Fermilab Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A summary of the requirements for modulational (thick-layer) diffusion to exist in a particle synchrotron is presented and applied to a simple tune-modulated collider model of the Fermilab Tevatron where the only nonlinearities present are two beam-beam kicks. For certain realistic tune modulation parameters and single-particle base tunes, amplitude growth is observed over timescales appropriate to diffusive models. The character of this growth has qualitative features that are similar to those predicted by modulational diffusion models I but is significantly different in that the amplitude growth is exponential in time, not root-time as in classical diffusion. Some possible explanations for this effect are briefly noted, and impact of the possible existence of such a mechanism on future Fermilab collider upgrades is mentioned

    The production of black holes at Tevatron and LHC in spacetimes with compactified space-like large extra dimensions is studied. Either black holes can already be observed in pp collisions at square root s =1.8 TeV or the fundamental gravity scale has to be above 1.4 TeV. At LHC the creation of a large number of quasi-stable black holes is predicted, with lifetimes beyond several hundred fm/c. A cut-off in the high-P/sub T/ jet cross section is shown to be a unique signature of black hole production. This signal is compared to the jet plus missing energy signature due to graviton production in the final state as proposed by the ATLAS collaboration. (24 refs).

    I present an analysis of b{bar b} pair production correlations, using dimuon-triggered data collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV during Run II of the TeVatron. The leading order (LO) and next-to-leading order (NLO) b quark production processes are discriminated by the angular and momentum correlations between the b{bar b} pair. Track-level jets containing a muon are classified by b quark content and used to estimate the momentum vector of the progenitor b quark. The theoretical distributions given by the MC{at}NLO event generator are tested against the data.

  17. New Measurements of Upsilon Spin Alignment at the Tevatron

    Full Text Available We describe a new analysis of γ(nS → μ+μ− decays collected in pp¯ $par p$ collisions with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. This analysis measures the angular distributions of the final state muons in the γ rest frame, providing new information about γ production polarization. We find the angular distributions to be nearly isotropic up to γ pT of 40 GeV/c, consistent with previous measurements by CDF, but inconsistent with results obtained by the D0 experiment. The results are compared with recent NLO calculations based on color-singlet matrix elements and non-relativistic QCD with color-octet matrix elements.

    The authors present recent preliminary measurements of the top-antitop pair production cross section and determinations of the top quark pole mass, performed using the data collected by the CDF and D0 Collaborations at the Tevatron Collider. In the lepton plus jets final state, with semileptonic B decay, the pair production cross section has now been measured at CDF using {approx} 760 pb{sup -1} of proton-antiproton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. A measurement of the production cross section has also been made with {approx} 1 fb{sup -1} of data in the all-jets final state by the CDF Collaboration. The mass of the top quark has now been measured using {approx} 1 fb{sup -1} of collision data using all decay channels of the top quark pair, yielding the most precise measurements of the top mass to date.

  19. Internal beam abort system for the Tevatron upgrade

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this paper, the authors examine the properties of an internal beam dump system for the Tevatron running in the p bar p collider mode. The authors assume that the beam energy can be as high as 1.8 TeV. The motivation behind this report comes from the fact that the present proton abort system is a single-turn fast-extraction system, which becomes progressively more difficult to perform as the beam energy is raised without lengthening the straight section. The authors examine three different designs. The first is a system comprised of two beam dumps at each end of the existing straight section, the second dump acting as an absorber for the secondary particles produced in the primary dump as well as functioning as the primary dump for the particles of the opposite sign

  20. How to Search for a Light Stop at the Tevatron

    CERN Document Server

    Mahlon, G

    1998-01-01

    We describe a method for searching for a light stop squark [M(stop)+M(LSP)Tevatron. Traditional searches rely upon stringent background-reducing cuts which, unfortunately, leave very few signal events given the present data set. To avoid this difficulty, we suggest using a milder set of cuts, combined with a ``superweight,'' whose purpose is to discriminate between signal and background. The superweight consists of a sum of terms (each of which are either zero or one) assigned event-by-event depending upon the values of various observables. By construction, the superweight ``large'' for the signal and ``small'' for the background. We apply this method to the detection of stops coming from top decay. It is straightforward to adapt our method to other processes.

  1. Two Higgs Bosons at the Tevatron and the LHC?

    2012-01-01

    The best fit to the Tevatron results in the bb channel and the mild excesses at CMS in the gamma-gamma channel at 136 GeV and in the tau-tau channel above 132 GeV can be explained by a second Higgs state in this mass range, in addition to the one at 125 GeV recently discovered at the LHC. We show that a scenario with two Higgs bosons at 125 GeV and 136 GeV can be consistent with practically all available signal rates, including a reduced rate in the tau-tau channel around 125 GeV as reported by CMS. An example in the parameter space of the general NMSSM is given where, moreover, the signal rates of the 125 GeV Higgs boson in the gamma-gamma channels are enhanced relative to the expectation for a SM Higgs boson of this mass.

  2. Tau jet signals for supersymmetry at the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The authors present a more detailed account of the study (hep-ph/9903238) for the supersymmetry reach of the Tevatron in channels with isolated leptons and identified tau jets. They review the theoretical motivations for expecting such signatures, and describe the relevant parameter space in the minimal supergravity and the minimal gauge-mediated models. With explicit Monte Carlo simulations they then show that for certain parameter ranges, channels with two leptons and one tau jet offer a better reach in Run 2 than the clean trilepton signal. They emphasize that improving on tau ID is an important prerequisite for successful searches in multiple tau jet channels. Finally, they discuss some triggering issues

    We report results of a search for particles with anomalously high ionization in events with a high transverse energy jet and large missing transverse energy in 2.4fb-1 of integrated luminosity collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron pp¯ collider. Production of such particles (quirks) is expected in scenarios with extra QCD-like SU(N) sectors, and this study is the first dedicated search for such signatures. We find no evidence of a signal and set a lower mass limit of 107, 119, and 133 GeV for the mass of a charged quirk with strong dynamics scale Λ in the range from 10 keV to 1 MeV and N=2, 3, and 5, respectively.

  8. LHC/Tevatron Key to Scalars: Dilaton, Higgs boson, Radion

    CERN Document Server

    Barger, Vernon; Keung, Wai-Yee

    2011-01-01

    A number of candidate theories beyond the standard model (SM) predict new scalar bosons below the TeV region. Among these, the radion, which is predicted in the Randall-Sundrum model, and the dilaton, which is predicted in spontaneous scale symmetry breaking, have very similar couplings to those of the SM Higgs boson, and it is very difficult to differentiate these three spin-0 particles in the expected signals of the Higgs boson at the LHC and Tevatron. We demonstrate that the observation of the ratio sigma(gamma gamma)/sigma(WW) gives a simple and decisive way, independently of the values of model parameters: the VEVs of the radion and dilaton fields.

  9. Choice of Tevatron tune with matched low-β insertions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Tevatron lattice, following closely the Main Ring lattice, is made up of approximately 90 FODO cells with six straight sections equally spaced. The straight sections are identical (neglecting the special high-β straight section used for resonant extraction) providing six-fold symmetry. Each straight section is comprised mainly of a pair of doublets, one at each end, in an antisymmetric configuration. The β-functions are matched to the building block cells but the dispersion function is not. The β-function matching implies that the structure is not sensitive to the tune of the sextant (i.e., structure resonances); however, the dispersion mismatch excites off-momentum dipole resonances and the dispersion structure of the ring is therefore sensitive to sextant tunes near an integer. The introduction of low-β insertions can be accomplished by replacing a standard insertion (expanded somewhat from the doublet pair straight section) with a low-β insertion. By matching the ends of the replacement units with respect to β-functions and dispersion function, the full lattice is made insensitive to linear structure resonances. Procedures are described here for introducing into the idealized Tevatron lattice considered here a single matched low-β insertion at BO, and two matched low-β insertions at BO and DO. The main consequence is the need for a significant number of independently powered quadrupoles. Another conclusion is related to the choice of tune, where it is found that the arbitrary rule of maintaining a fixed tune for all configurations should be modified

  10. Activation of sweeping magnets in Tevatron II standardized target piles

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    As designs of the primary targeting schemes for the new Tevatron II slow spill beams progress, it is becoming clear that a standardized form for these schemes is emerging. The general form consists of a production target (usually about 30 cm of beryllium having a diameter from 0.64 to 1.27 cm) followed by from one to three of the new Tevatron II H frame magnets recently developed by D. Eartly. These magnets sweep the unused primary proton beam onto a massive steel beam dump containing a core of material capable of dispersing the energy of the beam along with a hole for transmitting the secondary beam desired at experimental targets. Typical primary proton intensities at such production targets are planned to be in the range of 3 x 1012 to 5 x 1012 protons per spill. If one assumes such operation during a run of 4000 hours per year, 60 spills per hour, the integrated beam is seen to be approximately 1 x 1018 per year targetted at a rate of 7/0 x 1010 protons/sec during the run. It is clear, from experience, that such beam intensities require that the water used to cool the beam dump must be in a closed loop system both to protect personnel during operations from the external radiation exposure rate due to short lived radionuclides (e.g., 11C and 7Be) and to protect against release of significant activities of tritium into surface waters. It is not certain that a closed loop system is required for the sweeping magnets. This TM reports on a calculation designed to evaluate this potential problem, the expected dose rates external to such magnets, and the total activity which will be contained in them and the target

  16. Measurement of the top quark properties at the Tevatron and the LHC

    CERN Document Server

    Margaroli, Fabrizio

    2014-01-01

    Almost two decades after its discovery at Fermilab's Tevatron collider experiments, the top quark is still under the spotlight due to its connections to some of the most interesting puzzles in the Standard Model. The Tevatron has been shut down two years ago, yet some interesting results are coming out of the CDF and D0 collaborations. The LHC collider at CERN produced two orders of magnitude more top quarks than Tevatron's, thus giving birth to a new era for top quark physics. While the LHC is also down at the time of this writing, many top quark physics results are being extracted out of the 7\\,TeV and 8\\,TeV proton proton collisions by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations, and many more are expected to appear before the LHC will be turned on again sometime in 2015. These proceedings cover a selection of recent results produced by the Tevatron and LHC experiments.

  19. Measurements of field decay and snapback effect on Tevatron dipole magnets

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The performance of Fermilab's Tevatron accelerator, currently in its Run II stage, is degraded by beam loss and emittance dilution during ramping from injection to collision energy. This could be related in part to insufficient compensation of dynamic effects such as the decay of the magnetic field in the dipoles during the dwell at injection and the following so-called snapback during the first few seconds of the energy ramp. The two effects are closely related and depend on the powering history of the magnets. Dynamic effects, which were originally discovered at the Tevatron, were investigated on Tevatron magnets in various past measurement campaigns in the 1980s and later in 1996. This paper reports on the most recent measurements performed on an additional set of Tevatron magnets

  10. Challenging the standard model at the Tevatron collider

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Filthaut, Frank; /Nijmegen U.

    2011-03-01

    Even at a time where the world's eyes are focused on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, which has reached the energy frontier in 2010, many important results are still being obtained from data analyses performed at the Tevatron collider at Fermilab. This contribution discusses recent highlights in the areas of B hadron, electroweak, top quark, and Higgs boson physics. The standard model (SM) of particle physics forms the cornerstone of our understanding of elementary particles and their interactions, and many of its aspects have been investigated in great detail. Yet it is generally suspected to be incomplete (e.g. by not allowing for the incorporation of gravity in a field theoretical setting) and un-natural (e.g. the mass of the Higgs boson is not well protected against radiative corrections). In addition, it does not explain the dark matter and dark energy content of the Universe. It is therefore of eminent importance to test the limits of validity of the SM. In the decade since its upgrade to a centre-of-mass energy {radical}s = 1.96 TeV, the Tevatron p{bar p} collider has delivered an integrated luminosity of about 10 fb{sup -1}, up to 9 fb{sup -1} of which are available for analysis by its CDF and D0 collaborations. These large datasets allow for stringent tests of the SM in two areas: direct searches for particles or final states that are not very heavy but that suffer from small production cross sections (e.g. the Higgs boson), and searches for indirect manifestations of beyond-the-standard-model (BSM) effects through virtual effects. The latter searches can often be carried out by precise measurements of otherwise known processes. This contribution describes such tests of the SM carried out by the CDF and D0 collaborations. In particular, recent highlights in the areas of B hadron physics, electroweak physics, top quark physics, and Higgs boson physics are discussed. Recent results of tests of QCD and of direct searches for new phenomena are described

  12. B Physics at tevatron and the B Factories

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The following contribution is in no way a complete summary of the physics of b hadrons but merely a selection of some key topics which the author considered exemplary to explain the essence of B physics to beginners in the field. The main emphasis has been put on electroweak decays of b hadrons which in one form or another contain information about the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix. The elements of this matrix define the coupling strength of the various quark pairs to the W boson. The coupling strengths cannot be predicted but have to be measured and are thus input parameters to the Standard Model of Particle Physics. Furthermore the CKM matrix is the mechanism which implements CP violation in the Standard Model. The phenomenon of CP violation and the CKM matrix are enjoying quite some attention since there are indications that something is not right in the Standard Model. This contribution discusses the most prominent measurements in the field of B physics which are presently performed or prepared at the Tevatron and the B factories. The experimental setup in terms of the accelerators and the experiments is described in the beginning. The differences between e+e- and pp machines and the corresponding detector designs are discussed in detail. In the next step the analysis tools are developed step by step by describing the measurements which make use of them. (Author) 39 refs

  13. W mass and Triple Gauge Couplings at Tevatron

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pétroff Pierre

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available The W mass is a crucial parameter in the Standard Model (SM of particle physics, providing constraints on the mass of the Higgs boson as well as on new physics models via quantum loop corrections. On the other hand, any deviation of the triple gauge boson couplings (TGC from their values predicted by the SM would be also an indication for new physics. We present recent measurements on W boson mass and searches for anomalous TGC (aTGC in Wγ, Zγ, WW, WZ and ZZ at Fermilab Tevatron both by CDF and DØ Collaborations. The CDF Collaboration has measured the W boson mass using data corresponding to 2.2 fb−1 of integrated luminosity. The measurement, performed using electron and muon decays of W boson, yields a mass of MW = 80387 ± 19 MeV. The DØ Collaboration has measured MW = 80367 ± 26 MeV with data corresponding to 4.3 fb−1 of integrated luminosity in the channel W → ev. The combination with an earlier DØ result, using independant data sample at 1 fb−1 of integrated luminosity, yields MW = 80375 ± 23 MeV. The limits on anomalous TGCs parameters are consistent with the SM expectations.

  14. Search for low mass Higgs at the Tevatron

    We present CDF and D0 searches for a Standard Model Higgs boson produced associatively with a W or Z boson at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV using up to 1 fb{sup -1} of analyzed Tevatron data collected from February 2002 to February 2006. For Higgs masses less than 135 GeV/c{sup 2}, as is favored by experimental and theoretical constraints, W{sup {+-}} H {yields} {ell}{sup {+-}}{nu}b{bar b}, ZH {yields} {ell}{sup +}{ell}{sup -} b{bar b}, and ZH {yields} {nu}{bar {nu}}b{bar b} are the most sensitive decay channels to search for the Higgs boson. Both CDF and D0 have analyzed these three channels and found no evidence for Higgs production, and therefore set upper limits on the Higgs production cross-section. While the analyses are not yet sensitive to Standard Model Higgs production, improvements in analysis techniques are increasing sensitivity to the Higgs much faster than added luminosity alone.

  15. New cryogenic controls for the tevatron low temperature upgrade

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Fermilab's Tevatron accelerator is undergoing a major cryogenic system upgrade. This upgrade project is necessary to lower coil temperature of the accelerator's magnets by approximately 1K. The new system configuration utilizes a new valve box containing a 130 liter subcooling dewar and a Cold Compressor at each of the 24 satellite refrigerators. Each Cold Compressor pumps on a dewar to maintain the two-phase pressure at 50.7 kPa (0.5 atm) producing 3.56K helium in the dewar and magnet strings. The valve box and cold compressor installations, coupled with the need for new wet expander controllers and the addition of a significant amount of instrumentation, forced the immediate need for additional cryogenic control capabilities, which could only be met by major hardware and software upgrades. The additional requirements of the new cryogenic system doubled the number of I/O terminations per satellite, exceeding the capability of the original Multibus I, Z80-based distributed controls package. The original controls package, although highly successful over the last 10 year period, had already reached the upper limits of its capabilities with the many previous changes the cryogenic systems had undergone (i.e., Low Beta Magnet installations). The need for more digital and analog hardware, along with the desire for further control loop and automated controls features guided the new design

  16. Soft color interactions and diffractive hard scattering at the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An improved understanding of nonperturbative QCD can be obtained by the recently developed soft color interaction models. Their essence is the variation of color string-field topologies, giving a unified description of final states in high energy interactions, e.g., diffractive and nondiffractive events in ep and pp. Here we present a detailed study of such models (the soft color interaction model and the generalized area law model) applied to pp, considering also the general problem of the underlying event including beam particle remnants. With models turned to HERA ep data, we find a good description also of Tevatron data on production of W, bottom and jets in diffractive events defined either by leading antiprotons or by one or two rapidity gaps in the forward or backward regions. We also give predictions for diffractive J/ψ production where the soft exchange mechanism produces both a gap and a color singlet cc state in the same event. This soft color interaction approach is also compared with Pomeron-based models for diffraction, and some possibilities to experimentally discriminate between these different approaches are discussed.

  17. Searching for a Light Stop at the Tevatron

    CERN Document Server

    Mahlon, G; Mahlon, Gregory

    1997-01-01

    We describe a method to help the search for a light stop squark [M(stop) + M(LSP) < M(top)] at the Fermilab Tevatron. Traditional search methods rely upon a series of stringent background-reducing cuts which, unfortunately, leave very few signal events given the present data set. To avoid this difficulty, we instead suggest using a milder set of cuts, combined with a ``superweight,'' whose purpose is to discriminate between signal and background events. The superweight consists of a sum of terms, each of which are either zero or one. The terms are assigned event-by-event depending upon the values of various observables. We suggest a method for choosing the observables as well as the criteria used to assign the values such that the superweight is ``large'' for the supersymmetric signal and ``small'' for the standard model background. For illustration, we mainly consider the detection of stops coming from top decay, making our analysis especially relevant to the $W$ + 2 jets top sample.

New measurements of the W and Z cross section x branching ratios indicate that Γ(W) is 2.033 ± 0.069 ± 0.057 GeV. The upper limit for the top quark mass, if it is produced in W decays, is 62 GeV/c3. Gauge boson pair production studies are beginning to constrain electro-weak parameters. No neutral gauge bosons with mass > Mz have appeared. Inclusive jet production and angular distribution studies are compared to NLO perturbative QCD predictions. A new topological jet analysis from CDF is sensitive to the low x gluon distribution. The direct photon cross section shows a steeper fall-off with Et than does the theory prediction. D0 has one candidate t bar t event in the dilepton mode. The lower limit on MTop has been raised to 99 GeV/c2

  19. Heavy flavour production at Tevatron and parton shower effects

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present hadron-level predictions from the Monte Carlo generator Cascade and numerical calculations of charm and beauty production at the Fermilab Tevatron within the framework of the kT-factorization QCD approach. Our consideration is based on the CCFMevolved unintegrated gluon densities in a proton. The performed analysis covers the total and differential cross sections of open charm and beauty quarks, B and D mesons (or rather muons from their semileptonic decays) and the total and differential cross sections of b anti b di-jet hadroproduction. We study the theoretical uncertainties of our calculations and investigate the effects coming from parton showers in initial and final states. Our predictions are compared with the recent experimental data taken by the D0 and CDF collaborations. Special attention is put on the specific angular correlations between the final-state particles. We demonstrate that the final state parton shower plays a crucial role in the description of such observables. The decorrelated part of angular separations can be fully described, if the process gg* → gg is included. (orig.)

  20. Proposed Fermilab fixed target experiment: Kaons at the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The US Department of Energy (DOE) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA), DOE/EA-0898, evaluating the impacts associated with the proposed fixed target experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Femilab) in Batavia, Illinois, known as Kaons at the Tevatron (KTeV). The proposed KTeV project includes reconfiguration of an existing target station, enhancement of an existing beam transport system connected to existing utility facilities, and construction of a new experimental detector hall area. The study of the K meson, a type of subatomic particle, has been going on at Fermilab for 20 years. The proposed KTEV project advances the search for the origins of a violation of a fundamental symmetry of nature called charge parity (CP) violation. Based on the analysis in the EA, the DOE has determined that the proposed action does not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment, within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969. Therefore, the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is not required

  1. The search for the Higgs at the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Tevatron has undergone an impressive technical renovation program whose final aim is to reach an integrated luminosity of 15 fb-1 per experiment. Both CDF and DO detectors have been upgraded in the fields of detection, triggering, track reconstruction and particle identification. In the framework of the standard model, theoretical studies show that for a luminosity of only 2 fb-1 (that is the first step of the renovation program) CDF and DO could barely extend the domain already excluded by LEP for the existence of the Higgs boson. On the other hand for a luminosity of 15 fb-1, a standard Higgs boson could be excluded up to 180 GeV/c2 and discovered up to 125 GeV/c2. Moreover, a 3*σ result could be obtained in the decay channels H → bb-bar and H → W+W- up to 180 GeV/c2. In the framework of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM), at least 20 fb-1 are required for the discovery of the Higgs boson in the energy range: 80 ≤ mA ≤ 380 GeV/c2. (A.C.)

  2. Review of W and Z production at the Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The CDF and D0 collaborations have used recent data taken at the Tevatron to perform QCD tests with W and Z bosons decaying leptonically. D0 measures the production cross section times branching ratio for W and Z bosons. This also gives an indirect measurement of the total width of the W boson: ΛW = 2.126 ± 0.092 GeV. CDF reports on a direct measurement of ΛW = 2.19 ± 0.19 GeV, in good agreement with the indirect determination and Standard Model predictions. D0's measurement of the differential dσ/dpT distribution for W and Z bosons decaying to electrons agrees with the combined QCD perturbative and resummation calculations. In addition, the dσ/dpT distribution for the Z boson discriminates between different vector boson production models. Studies of W + Jet production at CDF find the NLO QCD prediction for the production rate of W + (ge) 1 Jet events to be in good agreement with the data

    In this paper, we study the sensitivity of the fraction of t\\bar {t} events arising from gluon-gluon fusion to the chromoelectric and chromomagnetic dipole moments (CEDM and CMDM) as well as the total and differential t\\bar {t} cross-sections at the LHC and Tevatron. The sensitivity of measured charged asymmetry at the LHC to CEDM and CMDM is also studied. We find that at the Tevatron and the LHC, nonzero values of CMDM could suppress the t\\bar {t} production rate. It is shown that the ratio of σ (gg-> t\\bar {t})/σ (p\\bar {p}-> t\\bar {t}) at the Tevatron is more sensitive to CEDM and CMDM than the LHC case. The presence of CEDM always increases the contribution of gluon-gluon fusion process in top pair rate at the Tevatron and LHC. Except for a small range of CMDM, the presence of CEDM and CMDM can increase the fraction of gluon-gluon fusion at the Tevatron and LHC. The measured ratio of σ (gg-> t\\bar {t})/σ (p\\bar {p}-> t\\bar {t}) at the Tevatron is used to derive bounds on the chromoelectric and chromomagnetic dipole moments as well as the total and differential (dσ /dmt\\bar {t}) cross-sections at the LHC and Tevatron, and the measured charged asymmetry at the LHC. The combination of dσ TeV/dmt\\bar {t} and σLHC provides stringent limits on CMDM and CEDM.

  15. Fully coupled analysis of orbit response matrices at the FNAL Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Optics measurements have played an important role in improving the performance of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL) Tevatron collider. Initial optics measurements were performed using a small number of differential orbits, which allowed us to carry out the first round of optics corrections. However, because of insufficient accuracy, it was decided to apply the response matrix analysis method for further optics improvements. The response matrix program developed at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) has been expanded to include coupling - the essential feature required to describe the Tevatron optics. The results of the optics calibration are presented and compared to local beta function measurements. Tevatron is the largest proton-antiproton collider in the world. The commissioning of Tevatron Run II began in the spring of 2001 with the first luminosity seen in June. Since then, improving the linear optics model played an important role in the steady increase of luminosity. Until recently, the linear optics measurements were based on manual analysis of a few differential orbits, which neglected measurement inaccuracies, such as differences in beam position monitors (BPM) differential responses, BPM rolls, etc. This was a tedious procedure, which could not provide a full-scale optics determination; however, it did determine and correct major optics problems. To completely determine the linear model of Tevatron, we have applied a response matrix fitting method based on the analysis of many differential orbits. This method creates the redundancy in the data that allows us to get a much more detailed understanding of the machine.

  17. Observation of Central Exclusive Diphoton Production at the Tevatron

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Brucken, Jens Erik [Univ. of Helsinki (Finland); Helsinki Inst. of Physics (Finland)

    2013-01-01

    We have observed exclusive γγ production in proton-antiproton collisions at the Tevatron at √ s = 1.96 TeV. We use data corresponding to 1.11 ± 0.07 fb-1 integrated luminosity taken by the Run II Collider Detector at Fermilab, with a trigger requiring two electromagnetic showers, each with transverse energy ET > 2 GeV, and vetoing on hits in the forward beam shower counters. We select events with two electromagnetic showers, each with transverse energy ET > 2.5 GeV and pseudorapidity |η| < 1.0, with no other particles detected in -7.4 < η < +7.4. The two showers have similar ET and an azimuthal angle separation Δφ ~ π; we find 34 events with exactly two matching charged particle tracks, agreeing with expectations for the QED process p¯p → p+e+e- + ¯p by two photon exchange; and we find 43 events with no tracks. The latter are candidates for the exclusive process p¯p → p + γγ + ¯p by double pomeron exchange. We use the strip and wire chambers at the longitudinal shower maximum position within the calorimeter to measure a possible exclusive background from IP + IP → π0π0, and conclude that it is consistent with zero and is < 15 events at 95% C.L. The measured cross section is σγγ,excl(|η| < 1, ET (γ) > 2.5 GeV) = 2.48 +0.40 -0.35(stat) +0.40 -0.51(syst) pb and in agreement with the theoretical predictions. This process is closely related to exclusive Higgs boson production pp → p + H + p at the Large Hadron Collider. The observation of the exclusive production of diphotons shows that exclusive Higgs production can happen and could be observed with a proper experimental setup.

  20. Reasons for the removal of Tevatron dipoles from the tunnel: A summary

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The commissioning of the Tevatron was completed in 1983 and immediately, thereafter the experimental physics program began. The initial program involved using the Tevatron, first at 400GeV and then at 800GeV to supply beam for fixed target experiments. Beginning in 1985 the collider program has alternated with the fixed target program. The collider program runs with 900GeV protons and anti-protons. In the period since 1983, in addition to providing beam for the High Energy Physics program, we have had to shut down the Tevatron for modifications to the lattice (as dictated by the demands of the physics program) and for repairs to the magnets. These repairs have resulted in an accelerator that operates with high efficiency and reliability

    2013-01-01

    For more than 25 years the Tevatron was the highest energy accelerator in the world, providing the first access to particle collisions beyond 1 TeV and achieving an ultimate performance a factor of four hundred beyond the original design goals. This article reviews the many formidable challenges that were overcome, and the knowledge gained, in building, operating, and improving the Tevatron over its lifetime. These challenges included: the first operations of an accelerator based on superconducting magnets, production of antiprotons in sufficient numbers to support a useable luminosity, management of beam-beam, intrabeam, and other collective effects, novel manipulations of the beam longitudinal phase space, and development and application of a wide variety of innovative technologies. These achievements established the legacy of the Tevatron as the progenitor of all subsequently constructed high energy hadron colliders.

    This work was dedicated to the search for pairs of first generation scalar leptoquarks one decaying into ej and the other into {nu}j. The experimental data used (175,6 pb{sup -1}) is that collected during the run-II of the D0 experiment at Tevatron. The production cross-sections of scalar leptoquark pairs has been assessed at a 95% confidence level for different values of the mass. The comparison of these values with theoretical values has led us to state that for a branching ratio {beta} = 0.5 the existence of scalar leptoquarks with a mass lower than 194 GeV is not possible. For a branching ratio {beta} = 1, some scalar leptoquarks with mass < 238 GeV may be excluded while for {beta} = 0.5, some scalar leptoquarks with mass < 213 GeV are excluded.

    The construction of the ILC tangential to Tevatron ring will give opportunity to investigate electron-proton, positron-proton, electron-antiproton, positron-antiproton interactions at 1 TeV center of mass energy. The analysis of the lepton-hadron collisions in these energy region is very important both for understanding of strong interaction dynamics and for adequate interpretation of future LHC and VLHC data. In addition, ILC-Tevatron collider will provide a possibility to realize photon-hadron collisions in the same energy region using Compton backscattered laser photon off ILC electron beam. Main parameters of these colliders are estimated and their physics search potential is briefly discussed.

    Provides a comprehensive overview. The book reviews the latest experimental results of charm and bottom flavor physics at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider. The measurements of lifetimes, branching ratios and mixing properties of heavy flavored hadrons provide important constraints on fundamental parameters of the standard model - the elements of the CKM matrix. Comparisons of experimental results with theoretical predictions allow to search for physics beyond the standard model or to set bounds on parameters of new physics models. The experimental techniques developed at the Tevatron are highly relevant for the next generation flavor physics experiments at the LHC.

L’étude de ces deux démarches d’interprètes conduit à une conclusion croisée : l’abstraction gouldienne n’est rien d’autre qu’un déplacement du jeu vers d’autres instruments (ceux qui servent à la prise de son et au montage de ses enregistrements ; le « faire-corps » hérité de la culture pianistique romantique est plus dialectique que fusionnel, et en cela implique une capacité de mise à distance. A partir de cette double conclusion, on tâche enfin de repenser la place du jeu à l’instrument dans la mise en œuvre d’une interprétation, en interrogeant le dialogue qui s’instaure entre la partition telle qu’elle s’écrit et le geste tel qu’il se joue.Our study leans on an opposition between two pianists' attitudes about their work with the instrument. Gould claims a necessary separation from the keyboard in order to prioritize reading. Arrau, on the contrary, relies on a technique which consists in “being one” with his piano. The analysis of these two interprets’ behaviours leads to a crossed conclusion: the gouldian abstraction is nothing else than a displacement of the playing towards another kind of instruments, the ones he uses in sound recording and cut up; Arrau’s “being one” is more dialectic than at first sight, and it therefore implies a real distancing from the piano. This constatation leads to rethink the place of the piano playing in the setting of an interpretation, and to highlight the real dialogue which develops itself between the score as it has been written and the gesture as it is played.

    Le secret et la dissimulation sont, à l’époque moderne (et bien au-delà), au cœur d’une vaste réflexion savante sur l’art de gouverner et sur la conduite adaptée à la vie en société. Les études rassemblées ici ne considèrent le secret ni comme une vérité cachée – les arcana imperii – ni comme une qualité transcendante – les mystères de l’État. Elles mettent l’accent sur les pratiques et les usages du secret, sur le secret social comme mode d’agir. Elles montrent par là que le discours sur le ...

Les enfants victimes de négligence ou de violence sont particulièrement à risque de développer des problèmes d’adaptation psychosociaux sérieux durant l’enfance et l’adolescence, tels des problèmes de comportement (anxiété, agressivité et des difficultés scolaires. La théorie de l’attachement et les travaux de recherche de ce domaine suggèrent que des stratégies d’intervention axées sur la qualité des interactions parent-enfant peuvent améliorer la relation d’attachement et ainsi contribuer à prévenir l’apparition de problèmes d’adaptation chez les enfants maltraités. Dans cet article, nous décrivons une intervention inspirée de la théorie de l’attachement qui a été implantée auprès de familles vulnérables ayant un jeune enfant maltraité ou à très haut risque de maltraitance. Il s’agit d’une intervention brève centrée sur l’observation des interactions parent-enfant et qui utilise la rétroaction vidéo avec le parent. Elle a pour objectif d’augmenter la sensibilité de ce dernier à l’égard des besoins et signaux de son enfant et d’améliorer la sécurité d’attachement de l’enfant. Les principes à la base de cette intervention sont exposés ainsi que les raisons qui ont guidé le choix des stratégies d’intervention.

    A VME-based data acquisition system for beam-loss monitors has been developed and is in use in the Tevatron and Main Injector accelerators at the Fermilab complex. The need for enhanced beam-loss protection when the Tevatron is operating in collider-mode was the main driving force for the new design. Prior to the implementation of the present system, the beam-loss monitor system was disabled during collider operation and protection of the Tevatron magnets relied on the quench protection system. The new Beam-Loss Monitor system allows appropriate abort logic and thresholds to be set over the full set of collider operating conditions. The system also records a history of beam-loss data prior to a beam-abort event for post-abort analysis. Installation of the Main Injector system occurred in the fall of 2006 and the Tevatron system in the summer of 2007. Both systems were fully operation by the summer of 2008. In this paper we report on the overall system design, provide a description of its normal operation, and...

  4. The story of the Tevatron accelerators: Accelerator science and technology breakthroughs, achievements and lessons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    For almost a quarter of a century, the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider was the centerpiece of the world's high energy physics program - since it began operation in December of 1985, until it was overtaken by LHC in 2011. The aim of this unique scientific instrument was to explore the elementary particle physics reactions with center of mass collision energies of up to 1.96 TeV. The initial design luminosity of the Tevatron was 1030 cm-2 s-1, however as a result of two decades of upgrades, the accelerator has been able to deliver 430 times higher luminosities to each of two high luminosity experiments, CDF and D0. The Tevatron has been shut off since September 30, 2011. The collider was arguably one of the most complex research instruments ever to reach the operation stage and is widely recognized for many technological breakthroughs and numerous physics discoveries. In this paper, we briefly present the history of the Tevatron, major advances in accelerator physics, technology implemented during the long quest for better and better performance, and the lessons learned from our experience.

    Full Text Available Depuis 1900 au moins, la réforme de l’orthographe du français parait être en tout temps une question d’actualité. On ne peut être qu’impressionné par le nombre de commissions, projets, études, publications, pétitions, recommandations officielles... centrés sur cette thématique. L’époque actuelle semble même marquée par une certaine accélération, dont le point de départ pourrait être la publication au Journal officiel français, le 6 décembre 1990, des « rectifications orthographiques ». Toutes les publications scientifiques dédiées à cette question font état des difficultés que rencontrent les francophones dans l’écriture de leur langue. Beaucoup de ces travaux tentent de cerner les proportions respectives des pro- et des antiréformistes, analysent l’argumentaire des uns et des autres, essaient de déterminer sur quelles réformes les attentes pourraient s’accorder. C’est dans cette perspective que le présent travail s’inscrit, dans le contexte de la Belgique francophone. Dans cette communauté, en 1998, quatre circulaires ministérielles sont publiées à l’adresse des enseignants. Elles posent que les nouvelles graphies ont droit de cité dans l’enseignement, tout en mettant en avant un principe de tolérance : ni les nouvelles et ni les anciennes formes ne peuvent être considérées comme fautives. Ces circulaires n’ont apparemment suscité que des réactions assez molles. En septembre 2008, une nouvelle circulaire ministérielle (signée de quatre ministres se montre un peu plus incisive, invitant les enseignants, de tout niveau, à enseigner prioritairement les formes recommandées.

    AUTHOR|(CDS)2075380; Charlot, Claude

    I did my PhD in Particle Physics with the CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid) team from Laboratoire Leprince-Ringuet at Ecole Polytechnique. The subjects of my study are the pp→ZZ+X production and the search for anomalous triple gauge couplings (ATGCs) using the data collected by the CMS detector at LHC at sqrt{s}=7 TeV. This work began with the first collisions at the LHC in the end of 2009 with the study and optimisation of electron reconstruction algorithms. Selection criteria of pure electrons samples from Z decays have been studied. The electron reconstruction efficiency has been measured on 2010 and 2011 data and the results have been used by the CMS collaboration for the 2010 and 2011 analyses. Then I dealt with the analysis of ZZ→4l channel and the search for anomalous triple gauge couplings, as possible signature of new physics. A recovery algorithm to correct the 4-leptons mass from Final State Radiations loss has been developed: 4.2% of ZZ→4μ events are corrected with an FSR selection purity of 95.6...

    2000-05-11

    The experiment NA48 was mainly devoted to the measurement of the parameter characterizing the direct violation of CP: Re({epsilon}/{epsilon}'). The author has used experimental data that were collected in the second half of 1997, he proposed: Re({epsilon}/{epsilon}') (18.5 {+-} 4.5 (stat) {+-} 5.7 (syst)) * 10{sup -4}. This value is slightly lower than the average value (21.8 10{sup -4}) obtained over NA31, E731 experiments and the first results of kTeV and NA48 experiments. The first chapter proposes a didactical introduction to the concern of discrete symmetries in neutral kaons system. The second chapter presents the method chosen by the NA48 collaboration to perform the measurement of Re({epsilon}/{epsilon}') and the experimental equipment that is required. The third chapter is dedicated to the selection of events. The fourth chapter studies the efficiency of the trigger system for the events {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} and {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}. The fifth chapter presents the different corrections to bring to the experimental value in order to take into account the effects due to i) the tagging errors, ii) the background noise for {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} and {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} events, iii) the inaccuracy of triggers, iv) the change in detector acceptance according to the channels for K{sub s} or K{sub l} beams, v) the inaccuracy of the event reconstruction method, and vi) the unsteadiness of the intensity ratio K{sub s}/K{sub l}.

    Kerschen, N

    2006-09-15

    The ATLAS experiment is a general purpose particle physics experiment mainly aimed at the discovery of the origin of mass through the research of the Higgs boson. In order to achieve this, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN will accelerate two proton beams and make them collide at the centre of the experiment. ATLAS will discover new particles through the measurement of their decay products. Electrons are such decay products: they produce an electromagnetic shower in the calorimeter by which they lose all their energy. The calorimeter is divided into cells and the deposited energy is reconstructed using an algorithm to assemble the cells into clusters. The purpose of this thesis is to study a new kind of algorithm adapting the cluster to the shower topology. In order to reconstruct the energy of the initially created electron, the cluster has to be calibrated by taking into account the energy lost in the dead material in front of the calorimeter. Therefore. a Monte-Carlo simulation of the ATLAS detector has been used to correct for effects of response modulation in position and in energy and to optimise the energy resolution as well as the linearity. An analysis of test beam data has been performed to study the behaviour of the algorithm in a more realistic environment. We show that the requirements of the experiment can be met for the linearity and resolution. The improvement of this new algorithm, compared to a fixed sized cluster. is the better recovery of Bremsstrahlung photons emitted by the electron in the material in front of the calorimeter. A Monte-Carlo analysis of the Higgs boson decay in four electrons confirms this result. (author)

    Dechenaux, Benjamin; Delsart, Pierre-Antoine

    This report presents the analysis conducted with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC and searching for resonnant production of new particles decaying into a pair of top quarks. Top quark reconstruction is mainly build upon the notion of hadronic jets, whose identification and reconstruction is a crucial issue for any measure trying to sign top quark decays from proton-proton collisions processes. After a general description of the theoretical and experimental features of jet reconstruction in the ATLAS detector, we present a first attempt to validate the local hadronic calibration method, which aim at correcting the measurement of these objects from inaccuracies caused by detector effects. In the second part, we present the analysis conducted on 14~fb−1 of proton-proton collision data at sqrts=8~TeV collected during the year 2012 and searching for resonnant creation of new extit{heavy} particles in top-antitop invariant mass spectrum. For heavy particles, the quarks produced in the decay of the latter have a hi...

  11. Simulations of the electron cloud buildups and suppressions in Tevatron and main injector

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    To assess the effects of the electron cloud on Main Injector intensity upgrades, simulations of the cloud buildup were carried out using POSINST and compared with ECLOUD. Results indicate that even assuming an optimistic 1.3 maximum secondary electron yield, the electron cloud remains a serious concern for the planned future operational mode with 500 bunches, 3e11 proton per bunch. Electron cloud buildup can be mitigated in various ways. We consider a plausible scenario involving solenoids in straight section and a single clearing strip electrode (like SNEG in Tevatron) held at a potential of 500V. Simulations with parameters corresponding to Tevatron and Main Injector operating conditions at locations where special electron cloud detectors have been installed have been carried out and are in satisfactory agreement with preliminary measurements

  12. Studies of time dependence of fields in TEVATRON superconducting dipole magnets

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The time variation in the magnetic field of a model Tevatron dipole magnet at constant excitation current has been studied. Variations in symmetry allowed harmonic components over long time ranges show a log t behavior indicative of ''flux creep.'' Both short time range and long time range behavior depend in a detailed way on the excitation history. Similar effects are seen in the remnant fields present in full-scale Tevatron dipoles following current ramping. Both magnitudes and time dependences are observed to depend on details for the ramps, such as ramp rate, flattop duration, and number of ramps. In a few magnets, variations are also seen in symmetry unallowed harmonics. 9 refs., 10 figs

  13. Signature of Sub GeV Dark Matter particles at LHC and TEVATRON

    CERN Document Server

    Vasquez, Daniel Albornoz; Idarraga, John

    2009-01-01

    In this letter, we demonstrate that 1-100 MeV (thermal) dark matter particles will be copiously produced at LHC (and potentially TEVATRON) if they exist and the associated colored messengers Fq are lighter than 1 TeV. We expect up to a million of events if the Fq mass is about 500 GeV, assuming a ~1 inverse fb luminosity. In addition, we show that, even if the Fq mass is above a few TeV, searches for Fq production at LHC are promising because we have found a kinematical signature that can be used to separate the signal from background. This signature is similar to that expected in supersymmetric scenarios. Hence, our study shows that most of the Fq mass range could be covered at LHC either owing to the large number of events or to the specific kinematical signature. This should encourage LHC (and perhaps also TEVATRON) collaborations to further study this scenario.

  14. Tevatron constraint on the Kaluza-Klein gluon of the Bulk Randall-Sundrum model

    CERN Document Server

    Guchait, M; Sridhar, K

    2007-01-01

    The Bulk Randall-Sundrum model, where all Standard Model particles except the Higgs are free to propagate in the bulk, predicts the existence of Kaluza-Klein (KK) modes of the gluon with a large branching into top-antitop pairs. We study the production of the lowest KK gluon mode at the Tevatron energy and use the data on the top cross-section from the Run II of Tevatron to put a bound on the mass of the KK gluon. The resulting bound of 800 GeV, while being much smaller than the constraints obtained on the KK gluon mass from flavour-changing neutral currents, is the first, direct collider bound which is independent of the specificities of the model.

    Applying the space-charge forces of a low-energy electron beam can lead to a significant improvement of the beam-particle lifetime limit arising from the beam-beam interaction in a high-energy collider [1]. In this article we present the results of various beam experiments with 'electron lenses', novel instruments developed for the beam-beam compensation at the Tevatron, which collides 980-GeV proton and antiproton beams. We study the dependencies of the particle betatron tunes on the electron beam current, energy and position; we explore the effects of electron-beam imperfections and noises; and we quantify the improvements of the high-energy beam intensity and the collider luminosity lifetime obtained by the action of the Tevatron Electron Lenses.

  16. Studies of top quark properties and search for electroweak single top quark production at the Tevatron

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Datta, Mousumi; /Fermilab

    2007-10-01

    The top quark was discovered in 1995 by the CDF and D0 experiments at the Fermilab Tevatron during the Run I operation. Since the start of the Tevatron Run II in 2001, both experiments have collected {approx}2 fb{sup -1} data samples, which are over twenty times larger than that used in the Run 1 discovery. This larger data sample allows more precise studies of top-quark properties; differences between observed top-quark properties and the Standard Model (SM) prediction may give hints to possible physics beyond the SM. Here we present the latest results on the measurements of top-quark properties and the search for electroweak (EW) single top quark production from the CDF and D0 collaborations. The integrated luminosity used for the measurements corresponds to about 1 fb{sup -1}.

  17. Measurement of Beam Tunes in the Tevatron Using the BBQ System

    Edstrom, Dean R.; /Indiana U.

    2009-04-01

    Measuring the betatron tunes in any synchrotron is of critical importance to ensuring the stability of beam in the synchrotron. The Base Band Tune, or BBQ, measurement system was developed by Marek Gasior of CERN and has been installed at Brookhaven and Fermilab as a part of the LHC Accelerator Research Program, or LARP. The BBQ was installed in the Tevatron to evaluate its effectiveness at reading proton and antiproton tunes at its flattop energy of 980 GeV. The primary objectives of this thesis are to examine the methods used to measure the tune using the BBQ tune measurement system, to incorporate the system into the Fermilab accelerator controls system, ACNET, and to compare the BBQ to existing tune measurement systems in the Tevatron.

  18. Run II physics at the Fermilab Tevatron and advanced analysis methods

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Fermilab Tevatron has the unique opportunity to explore physics at the electroweak scale with the highest ever proton-antiproton collision energy of √s = 1.96 TeV and unprecedented luminosity. About 20 times more data is expected to be collected during the first phase of the collider Run II which is in its second year of data-taking. The second phase of Run II, expected to begin in 2005, will increase the integrated luminosity to about 10-15 fb-1. Discovering a low mass Higgs boson and evidence for Supersymmetry or for other new physics beyond the Standard Model are the main physics goals for Run II. It is widely recognized that the use of advanced analysis methods will be crucial to achieve these goals. I discuss the current status of Run II at the Tevatron, prospects and foreseen applications of advanced analysis methods

  19. Beam-beam compensation studies in the Tevatron with electron lenses

    CERN Document Server

    Stancari, Giulio

    2013-01-01

    At the Fermilab Tevatron collider, we studied the feasibility of suppressing the antiproton head-on beam-beam tune spread using a magnetically confined 5-keV electron beam with Gaussian transverse profile overlapping with the circulating beam. When electron cooling of antiprotons was applied in regular Tevatron operations, the nonlinear head-on beam-beam effect on antiprotons was small. Therefore, we first focused on the operational aspects, such as beam alignment and stability, and on fundamental observations of tune shifts, tune spreads, lifetimes, and emittances. We also attempted two special collider stores with only 3 proton bunches colliding with 3 antiproton bunches, to suppress long-range forces and enhance head-on effects. We present here the results of this study and a comparison between numerical simulations and observations. These results contributed to the application of this compensation concept to RHIC at Brookhaven.

  20. The mechanical design of a bunched beam stochastic cooling tank for the FNAL Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The stringent alignment required for successful bunched beam stochastic cooling in FNAL's Tevatron necessitates the design and manufacture of a complex vacuum compatible mechanical alignment system. The design presented uses remote motion control to provide a positioning system with four degrees of freedom for placing two symmetric pickup loop arrays about the proton beam and with two degrees of freedom for aligning the arrays relative to each other. The system provides a 7.62 cm aperture between arrays during injection and a 1.90 cm aperture during operation while maintaining alignment between arrays within 50 μm. The system also allows precise remote longitudinal adjustment between pickup arrays with .002 μm resolution via a piezoelectric crystal inchworm motor in vacuum. Discussion includes the manufacture and installation of four complete pickup and kicker systems in the FNAL, Tevatron

  1. Progress with Tevatron Electron Lens Head-On Beam-Beam Compensation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Tevatron electron lenses have been successfully used to mitigate bunch-to-bunch differences caused by longrange beam-beam interactions. For this purpose, the electron beam with uniform transverse density distribution was used. Another planned application of the electron lens is the suppression of tune spread due to head-on beam-beam collisions. For this purpose, the transverse distribution of the E- beam must be matched to that of the antiproton beam. In 2009, the Gaussian profile electron gun was installed in one of the Tevatron electron lenses. We report on the first experiments with non-linear beam-beam compensation. Discussed topics include measurement and control of the betatron tune spread, importance of the beam alignment and stability, and effect of electron lens on the antiproton beam lifetime.

    The latest electroweak precission data allow the existence of additional chiral generations in the standard model. We study the influence of extra generations on the production of SM Higgs boson at hadron colliders. Due to the enhancement of the gluon fusion channel, the ``golden mode'' becomes more promising even at upgraded Tevatron. Furthermore, the formation of the fourth family quarkonia with the subsequent $\\eta_{4}\\to ZH$ decay introduces additional tool for the investigation of the Higgs boson properties.

  14. A 6kV Arbitrary Waveform Generator for the Tevatron Lens

    Pfeffer, H; 10.1088/1748-0221/6/11/P11003

    2012-01-01

    This paper reports on a 6 kV modulator built and installed at Fermilab to drive the electron gun anode for the Tevatron Electron Lens (TEL). The TEL was built with the intention of shifting the individual (anti)proton bunch tunes to even out the tune spread among all 36 bunches with the desire of improving Tevatron integrated luminosity. This modulator is essentially a 6 kV arbitrary waveform generator that enables the TEL to define the electron beam intensity on a bunch-by-bunch basis. A voltage waveform is constructed having a 7 {\\mu}s duration that corresponds to the tune shift requirements of a 12-bunch (anti)proton beam pulse train. This waveform is played out for any one or all three bunch trains in the Tevatron. The programmed waveform voltages transition to different levels at time intervals corresponding to the 395 ns bunch spacing. Thus, complex voltage waveforms can be played out at a sustained rate of 143 kHz over the full 6 kV output range. This paper describes the novel design of the inductive a...

  15. Motivation and detectability of an invisibly decaying Higgs boson at the Fermilab Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A Higgs boson with a mass below 150 GeV has a total decay width of less than 20 MeV into accessible standard model states. This narrow width means that the usual branching fractions for such a light Higgs boson are highly susceptible to any new particles to which it has unsuppressed couplings. In particular, there are many reasonable and interesting theoretical ideas that naturally imply an invisibly decaying Higgs boson. The motivations include models with light supersymmetric neutralinos, spontaneously broken lepton number, radiatively generated neutrino masses, additional singlet scalar(s), or right-handed neutrinos in the extra dimensions of TeV gravity. We discuss these approaches to model building and their implications for Higgs boson phenomenology in future Fermilab Tevatron runs. We find, for example, that the Tevatron with 30 fb-1 integrated luminosity can make a 3σ observation in the l+l-+E/T channel for a 125 GeV Higgs boson that is produced with the same strength as the standard model Higgs boson but always decays invisibly. We also analyze the b bar b+E/T final state signal and conclude that it is not as sensitive, but it may assist in excluding the possibility of an invisibly decaying Higgs boson or enable confirmation of an observed signal in the dilepton channel. We argue that a comprehensive Higgs boson search at the Tevatron should include the possibility that the Higgs boson decays invisibly. copyright 1999 The American Physical Society

    2010-01-01

    We study Higgs boson masses in supersymmetric models with an extra U(1) symmetry to be called U(1)$^{\\prime}$. Such extra gauge symmetries are urged by the $\\mu$ problem of the MSSM, and they also arise frequently in low-energy supersymmetric models stemming from GUTs and strings. We analyze mass of the lightest Higgs boson and various other particle masses and couplings by taking into account the LEP bounds as well as the recent bounds from Tevatron experiments. We find that the $\\mu$-problem motivated generic low-energy U(1)$^{\\prime}$ model yields Higgs masses as large as $\\sim 200\\ {\\rm GeV}$ and violate the Tevatron bounds for certain ranges of parameters. We analyze correlations among various model parameters, and determine excluded regions by both scanning the parameter space and by examining certain likely parameter values. We also make educated projections for LHC measurements in light of the Tevatron restrictions on the parameter space. We further analyze certain benchmark models stemming from E(6) ...

    ATLAS is the biggest and the more complex detector ever built, it will operate on the LHC and is the outcome of a huge international collaboration of 2000 physicists. This document reviews the theoretical and experimental achievements of one of them, his collaboration spread over 7 years and has followed 2 axis. First, the design, construction and test of the electromagnetic calorimeter of ATLAS and secondly, the development of analysis strategies in the physics of the top quark. The expected important production of top quarks in LHC will allow an accurate measurement of the properties of this particle and in the same way will provide new testing areas for the standard model. The top quark, being extremely massive, might play a significant role in the mechanism of electro-weak symmetry breaking. This document is organized into 5 chapters: 1) ATLAS detector, performance and progress, 2) the optimization of the energy measurement with the electromagnetic calorimeter, 3) the performance of the electromagnetic calorimeter, 4) the physics of the top quark, and 5) the potentialities of ATLAS in the top quark sector. This document presented before an academic board will allow its author to manage research works and particularly to tutor thesis students. (A.C.)

My contribution to the Higgs boson search is focused in the $H \\to ZZ^* \\to 4 \\ell$ channel at different level, from the data taking to the physics analysis. After a theoretical introduction, the LHC and the ATLAS detector are presented as well as their performance during the 2011 and 2012 runs. A particular consideration is given to the liquid argon calorimeters and to the data quality assessment of this system. The validation of the data recorded during non-nominal high voltage conditions is presented. This study allowed to recover 2\\% of the data collected available for physics analyses. This has a direct impact on the $H \\to ZZ^* \\to 4 \\ell$ channel were the number of signal events expected is very low. In order to optimize the acceptance of the four electrons decay channel, novel electron reconstruction algorithms wer...

    Full Text Available Cet article analyse le parcours migratoire des jeunes ruraux originaires des zones de production du cannabis, jeunes qui cherchent à briser les chaînes de soumission et d’humiliation vécues au quotidien. Pour les jeunes concernés par notre étude, la migration constitue un moyen de s’intégrer dans des réseaux transnationaux et ainsi d’entamer une carrière de beznass (commerçant du cannabis. Ce parcours « initiatique » permet à ces jeunes de revenir au bled avec de nouvelles idées, des moyens accrus, et de jouer un rôle actif dans l’économie locale – qui reste pour eux focalisée sur la production de cannabis, cette dernière restant néanmoins officiellement interdite.

    Full Text Available Ayant choisi de vivre dans un camion, les héros d’Au fil du temps (film de Wim Wenders de 1976 font du seuil une expérience particulière. Celle de la rupture avec toute idée de foyer et celle du refus d’appartenance à la terre natale, cette terre allemande traversée par une frontière le long de laquelle ils vont voyager, et qui les renvoie à chaque instant aux traumatismes de l’Histoire. Sur le pare-brise du camion, l’extérieur (campagnes indifférenciées, villes à l’abandon… et l’intérieur se superposent. Au fil du temps questionne le paysage : il s’agit d’en décoller un à un les mythes qui le recouvrent. L’image alors n’est plus surface mais volume à traverser, à lacérer et découvrir ce qui est tissé dans le paysage. La démarche de Wenders est alors proche de celle d’un de ses contemporains : Anselm Kiefer. Le paysage allemand provoque le rejet parce qu’il y a là toujours plus que le visible : des strates et des strates de culpabilité que le mythe - et c’est sa fonction - a recouvert. Et qu’il s’agira ici, de soulever. Le choix du nomadisme, c’est celui d’un état de l’humanité antérieur à l’idée de patrie. Et c’est aussi celui de la solitude, comme prix à payer à ce refus d’appartenance et à cette mise à jour des mythes. L’appartenance à la terre allemande et à son Histoire est profondément problématique parce que les pères sont fondamentalement coupables.

    Full Text Available La Côte d’Ivoire est le plus grand théâtre des migrations cacaoyères en Afrique sub-saharienne, depuis le Sahel et les régions de savane vers les forêts humides du golfe de Guinée. Dans tout le sud-ouest de la Côte d’Ivoire, se côtoient trois grands groupes de populations, les autochtones, les migrants d’originaires du centre du pays, et les migrants venus du Burkina Faso, ayant construit des modèles alimentaires spécifiques avant de se rencontrer. L’objectif est d’identifier les évolutions depuis leur rencontre dans les forêts du sud-ouest, puis d’en expliquer les déterminants. Les données collectées auprès de 110 planteurs, par questionnaires et interviews, sont limitées à la composante alimentaire des céréales, tubercules, banane plantain. Le résultat le plus important est une conversion partielle des régimes alimentaires des migrants vers le riz, longtemps l’alimentation de base des autochtones. Au cours de la même période de 30 ans, les autochtones suivent un chemin opposé, réduisant leur consommation de riz, abandonnant presque la production. Pour expliquer cette énigme sociologique, les thèses néo-malthusiennes appliquées à la Côte d’Ivoire, un temps contestées, sont remises à l’ordre du jour, teintées d’innovations boserupiennes. À la croisée des changements écologiques, économiques et sociaux, la raréfaction des terres, la disparition des forêts au cours du déroulement du cycle du cacao, l’accès différencié au travail, jouent un rôle décisif dans ces changements alimentaires, via des bouleversements dans les systèmes de production et les rapports sociaux.The Ivory Coast is the largest space for cocoa migrations in sub-Saharan Africa, extending from the Sahel and savannah regions to the rainforests of the Gulf of Guinea. In the southwest of Ivory Coast, three major population groups live side by side: natives, migrants coming from the central region of the country

    Bodwin, Geoffrey T; Kim, U-Rae; Lee, Jungil

    2014-01-01

    We compute leading-power fragmentation corrections to J/psi production at the Tevatron and the LHC. We find that, when these corrections are combined with perturbative corrections through next-to-leading order in the strong coupling constant alpha_s, we obtain a good fit to high-p_T cross section data from the CDF and CMS collaborations. The fitted long-distance matrix elements lead to predictions of near-zero J/psi polarization in the helicity frame at large p_T.

    Over the last two years corrections have been made for the skew quadrupole moment in 530 of the 774 installed dipoles in the Tevatron. This process of modifying the magnets in situ has inherent risk of degrading the performance of the superconducting accelerator. In order to manage the risk, as well as to ensure the corrections were done consistently, formal quality tools were used to plan and verify the work. The quality tools used to define the process and for quality control are discussed, along with highlights of lessons learned.

  1. Top quark forward-backward asymmetry at the Tevatron: the electroweak contribution

    CERN Document Server

    Pagani, Davide

    2012-01-01

    Recent CDF and D0 measurements of the top quark forward-backward asymmetry at the Tevatron present deviations between 1-sigma and 2-sigma from QCD predictions and a cut M_inv > 450 GeV on the events increases this deviation to 3.4 sigma in the CDF measurement. The inclusion of electroweak contributions of order alpha^2 and order alpha alphas^2 enlarges the theoretical prediction from QCD by a factor ~ 1.2 and diminishes the observed deviations. The calculation method is shortly discussed and numerical results are compared to the experimental data.

    The measurement of the longitudinal behavior of the accelerated particle beams at Fermilab is crucial to the optimization and control of the beam and the maximizing of the integrated luminosity for the particle physics experiments. Longitudinal measurements in the Tevatron and Main Injector synchrotrons are based on the analysis of signals from resistive wall current monitors. This article describes the signal processing performed by a 2 GHz-bandwidth oscilloscope together with a computer running a LabVIEW program which calculates the longitudinal beam parameters.

    In this dissertation we present a search for the associated production of charginos and neutralinos, the supersymmetric partners of the Standard Model bosons. We analyze a data sample representing 745 pb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity collected by the CDF experiment at the p{bar p} Tevatron collider. We compare the Standard Model predictions with the observed data selecting events with three leptons and missing transverse energy. Finding no excess, we combine the results of our search with similar analyses carried out at CDF and set an upper limit on the chargino mass in SUSY scenarios.

  5. Improving the discovery potential of charged Higgs bosons at Tevatron Run

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    By exploiting the full process pp-bar→tb-barH-, in place of the standard Monte Carlo procedure of factorising production and decay, pp-bar→tt-bar followed by t-bar→b-barH-, we show how to improve the discovery reach of the Tevatron (Run 2) in charged Higgs boson searches, in the large tan β region. This is achieved in conjunction with dedicated cuts on a 'transverse mass' distribution sensitive to the Higgs boson mass and to 'polarisation' effects in the H- →τ-ν-barτ decay channel. (author)

    Chromomagnetic and chromoelectric dipole interactions of the top quark are studied in a model-independent framework. Limits are set on the scale of new physics that might lead to such contributions using latest Tevatron measurements of the $t\\bar{t}$ cross-section. It is demonstrated that the invariant mass distribution is a sensitive probe. Prospects at the LHC are examined. It is shown that, for unitarized amplitudes, an increase in the LHC energy is of little importance, while the accumulation of luminosity plays a crucial role.

    The processes p bar p → ell bar νγ + X and p bar p → ell +ell -γ + X (ell = e, μ) have been observed using the DO detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at √s = 1.8 TeV. The observed signals in the electron and muon decay channels are used as a probe of the WWγ, ZZγ, and Zγγ vertex couplings. By comparing the event rates and shapes of the photon ET distributions with theoretical predictions, 95% confidence limits are obtained on the WWγ, ZZγ, and Zγγ vertex coupling parameters

    The strength functions S{sub 0} and S{sub 1}, and the scattering length R' are studied. The values of S{sub 0}, S{sub 1} and R' are obtained by shape analysis of the individual resonances observed in total neutron cross-section measurements. These measurements were performed at the Saclay 45 MeV linac by the time of flight method. The best resolution achieved was equal to 0.19 ns/m. We have particularly studied the nuclei around number of mass A = 50, 90, 140 and 200. The experimental values of S{sub 0}, S{sub 1} and R' are compared with optical model calculations. A fairly good agreement is obtained using an optical potential with surface absorption. (author) [French] Nous etudions les fonctions densite S{sub 0} et S{sub 1} ainsi que le rayon de diffusion R'.

  11. The fourth Standard Model family and the competition in Standard Model Higgs boson search at Tevatron and LHC

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The impact of the fourth Standard Model family on Higgs boson search at Tevatron and LHC is reviewed. The enhancement due to a fourth SM family in the production of Higgs boson via gluon fusion already enables the Tevatron experiments to become sensitive to Higgs masses between 140 and 200 GeV and could increase this sensitivity up to about 300 GeV until the LHC is in shape. The same effect could enable the LHC running even at 7 TeV center of mass energy to scan Higgs masses between 200 and 300 GeV only with a few hundred pb-1 of integrated luminosity. (orig.)

    We study the Higgs boson decay to W+W-, where one boson decays to leptons, and the other decays to c+jet at Tevatron. Given the current charm tagging acceptances, this channel can help improve and confirm the current combined Tevatron exclusion limit on a standard model-like Higgs boson. If charm acceptance can be improved to at least 24%, this channel could provide the second tightest limits on a Higgs boson mass between 140-190 GeV from a single channel measurement.

    We study unconventional decays of the top-quark and the top-squark in the framework of SUSY models with broken R-parity. The model under study is the MSSM with an additional bilinear term that breaks R-parity. In this model the top-squark behaves similar to a third generation leptoquark. We demonstrate that existing Tevatron data on the top give rise to restrictions on the SUSY parameter space. In particular, we focus on scenarios where the tau-neutrino mass is smaller than 1 eV. We give an exclusion plot derived from the leptoquark searches at Tevatron.

Le tabagisme, l’hypertension artérielle, l’augmentation des lipides sanguins, la sédentarité, l’obésité, la consommation d’alcool et le diabète en sont les principaux facteurs de risque. De plus, les personnes de milieux défavorisés sont considérées comme plus vulnérables parce que s’ajoutent pour elles d’autres facteurs de risque reconnus comme le faible niveau de scolarité, le faible revenu et le peu de maîtrise sur leur travail. L’intervention de ce projet, guidée par la théorie de la motivation vers un mieux-être par l’appropriation de son plein potentiel (Derenowski Fleury, 1991 décrit le processus d’intervention infirmière visant à susciter un changement de comportement en lien avec la santé du cœur auprès de femmes issues de milieux défavorisés. Les participantes ont été recrutées à l’intérieur d’un centre d’éducation aux adultes accueillant des femmes de milieux défavorisés. L’analyse des données provenant de journaux de bord, d’enregistrements audio de cinq rencontres intervenante/participantes et des notes ponctuelles de l’intervenante permet d’illustrer, selon les indices de Fleury (Derenowski, 1990, un processus d’appropriation d’un certain ou d’un plein potentiel de la part de 9 des 10 participantes.

    Actuellement, la question des situations de fin de vie se pose en problème social. La dénonciation du tabou de la mort et de l’acharnement thérapeutique suscite des interrogations éthiques relatives à la souffrance des malades. Dès lors, le bien mourir devient une préoccupation qui touche chacun d’entre-nous. En Suisse, l’aspiration à une mort pacifiée se meut en deux modèles distincts de la gestion des situations de fin de vie : les soins palliatifs et l’assistance au suicide. En oppositi...

  1. LHC Predictions from a Tevatron Anomaly in the Top Quark Forward-Backward Asymmetry

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Bai, Yang; Hewett, JoAnne L.; Kaplan, Jared; Rizzo, Thomas G.; /SLAC

    2011-08-12

    We examine the implications of the recent CDF measurement of the top-quark forward-backward asymmetry, focusing on a scenario with a new color octet vector boson at 1-3 TeV. We study several models, as well as a general effective field theory, and determine the parameter space which provides the best simultaneous fit to the CDF asymmetry, the Tevatron top pair production cross section, and the exclusion regions from LHC dijet resonance and contact interaction searches. Flavor constraints on these models are more subtle and less severe than the literature indicates. We find a large region of allowed parameter space at high axigluon mass and a smaller region at low mass; we match the latter to an SU(3){sub 1} x SU(3){sub 2}/SU(3){sub c} coset model with a heavy vector-like fermion. Our scenario produces discoverable effects at the LHC with only 1-2 inverse femtobarns of luminosity at 7-8 TeV. Lastly, we point out that a Tevatron measurement of the b-quark forward-backward asymmetry would be very helpful in characterizing the physics underlying the top-quark asymmetry.

  2. Polarized J/psi production from B mesons at the Tevatron

    Krey, U

    2003-01-01

    In the framework of NRQCD and parton model, we estimate in detail,the production cross section for polarized J/psi from B meson decays. In order to contrast with data, we also take into account additional J/psi production due to decay of excited charmonium states. We calculate the helicity parameter, alpha, and as an application, we study our results for the Tevatron. This is in contrast to the earlier studies which were performed for prompt J/psi production from p pbar collisions. Our estimates are, for J/psi from B decays, alpha_{J/psi} = -0.04 +- 0.06 and for B decays to psi', alpha_{psi'}= -0.03 +- 0.07. These results have been evaluated in the J/psi transverse momentum interval, 10 GeV < k_T < 30 GeV. In the limit of the color singlet model, alpha shows a direct dependence on the Peterson parameter, thereby reflecting the dynamics of the b quark hadronization. With Run II of the Tevatron, it is expected that the fits for alpha will improve by about a factor of 50, leading to better limits on the ma...

  3. MSTW PDFs and impact of PDFs on cross sections at Tevatron and LHC

    2012-01-01

    We briefly summarise the "MSTW 2008" determination of parton distribution functions (PDFs), and subsequent follow-up studies, before reviewing some topical issues concerning the PDF dependence of cross sections at the Tevatron and LHC. We update a recently published study of benchmark Standard Model total cross sections (W, Z, gg->H and t-tbar production) at the 7 TeV LHC, where we account for all publicly available PDF sets and we compare to LHC data for W, Z, and t-tbar production. We show the sensitivity of the Higgs cross sections to the gluon distribution, then we demonstrate the ability of the Tevatron jet data, and also the LHC t-tbar data, to discriminate between PDF sets with different high-x gluon distributions. We discuss the related problem of attempts to extract the strong coupling alpha_S from only deep-inelastic scattering data, and we conclude that a direct data constraint on the high-x gluon distribution is required to obtain a meaningful result. We therefore discourage the use of PDF sets ob...

  4. Beyond the God-particle at the Tevatron: detecting gluinos from Yukawa-unified SUSY

    CERN Document Server

    Baer, Howard; Sekmen, Sezen; Summy, Heaya

    2009-01-01

    Simple SUSY GUT models based on the gauge group SO(10) require t-b-\\tau Yukawa coupling unification, in addition to gauge coupling and matter unification. The Yukawa coupling unification places strong constraints on the expected superparticle mass spectrum, with scalar masses \\sim 10 TeV while gluino masses are much lighter: in the 300--500 GeV range. The very heavy squarks suppress negative interference in the q\\bar{q}\\to\\tg\\tg cross section, leading to a large enhancement in production rates. The gluinos decay almost always via three-body modes into a pair of b-quarks, so we expect at least four b-jets per signal event. We investigate the capability of Fermilab Tevatron collider experiments to detect gluino pair production in Yukawa-unified SUSY. By requiring events with large missing E_T and \\ge 2 or 3 tagged b-jets, we find a 5\\sigma reach in excess of m_{\\tg}\\sim 400 GeV for 5 fb^{-1} of data. This range in m_{\\tg} is much further than the conventional Tevatron SUSY reach, and should cut a significant sw...

  5. On the detectability of the CMSSM light Higgs boson at the Tevatron

    Roszkowski, L; Trotta, R; Roszkowski, Leszek; Austri, Roberto Ruiz de; Trotta, Roberto

    2007-01-01

    We examine the prospects of detecting the light Higgs scalar h^0 of the Constrained MSSM at the Tevatron. To this end we explore large ranges of the CMSSM parameter space with mu>0 using a Markov Chain Monte Carlo technique, and apply all relevant collider and cosmological constraints including their uncertainties, as well as those of the Standard Model parameters. Using the formalism of Bayesian statistics we find that the 68% posterior probability region for the light Higgs mass lies between 116.0 GeV and 120.4 GeV. Otherwise, h^0 is very similar to the Standard Model Higgs boson. Nevertheless, we point out some enhancements in its couplings to bottom and tau pairs, ranging from a few per cent in most of the CMSSM parameter space, up to several per cent in the most favored region of tan(beta)~50 and the pseudoscalar Higgs mass of m_A~1 TeV. We also find that the other Higgs bosons are typically too heavy to be produced at the Tevatron. We conclude that, over the whole CMSSM light Higgs 95% posterior probabi...

    The top quark was discovered in 1995 by the D0 and CDF experiments at the TeVatron. Due to its great mass, close to 172.5 GeV, the top quark is difficult to produce and some of its properties still need to be deeply studied. The Standard Model predicts two production modes which are the top quark pair production and the single top production. The top pair production is now well known unlike the single top production which exhibits lower production rates and higher background contamination. Th...

    Full Text Available L’article s’interroge sur la spécificité du terrain en sociologie des arts et de la culture. Il s’agit de montrer que la sur-valorisation sociale de ces activités a des conséquences sur les rapports entre chercheurs et acteurs ou consommateurs d’art et de culture. Activités de distinction sociale, elles provoquent autant de sur-déclaration que de sous-déclaration. Du coté des acteurs, l’intégration de certains discours sociologiques sur les arts fait que les entretiens sont biaisés par une sorte d’hyper-correction savante ; du côté des consommateurs, l’intégration des codes sociaux de distinction, notamment liés à l’école, mais aussi aux médias dominants, impose une échelle de valeur qui écrase certaines pratiques et en souligne d’autres. L’article s’appuie sur quelques exemples d’enquêtes auprès des artistes, comme des consommateurs, pour illustrer cette question.Field specificities for sociology of the arts and cultureIn this article, the author examines the specificities of field studies with regards to the sociology of the arts and culture. It is argued that the over-valorisation of these activities has consequences on the relations between researchers and actors or consumers of art and culture. Constituting activities of social distinction, such activities provoke as many over-declarations as under-declarations. With regards to the actors, the integration of certain sociological views on the arts and culture means that interviews are biased by a sort of scholarly hyper-correction; as for the consummators, the integration of social distinction codes, linked in particular to education but also to dominant expressions, imposes a value scale which crushes certain practices and underlines others.

    A search for the neutral Higgs bosons of the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model is performed in the 3 or 4 jets channels, pp-bar {yields} {phi}({yields} bb-bar)b(b-bar) with {phi} = h, H or A. For this purpose, the data collected with the D0 detector from 2002 to 2006 at the Tevatron hadronic collider with a center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV are analyzed. A complete study of the triggering is first done. The triggering conditions are optimized in order to keep the more signal fraction possible. Furthermore, a method is developed to predict the triggering efficiencies on our signal and backgrounds using only the data. Then an analysis method that allows the prediction of our background without the help of simulations is studied. No excess in events is observed in the data sample analyzed, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 0.9 fb{sup -1}, so limits are set in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model. At 95% confidence level, the following limits are found: tan({beta}) < 46 - 121 for m{sub {phi}} equals 100 - 170 GeV. (author)

    Full Text Available Au Québec, la difficulté à recruter et à maintenir en emploi des infirmières d’expérience dans les services régionaux Info-Santé est une préoccupation importante. Le Service régional Info-Santé et Info-Social de la région du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean ne fait pas exception alors que 42 départs ont été enregistrés chez son personnel infirmier entre 1998 et 2004. Pour mieux comprendre cette situation, une recherche qualitative de type phénoménologique a été réalisée avec comme objectifs d’identifier les facteurs prépondérants dans la non-rétention du personnel infirmier et de proposer des solutions qui permettraient une gestion efficace de la situation. Le modèle des hôpitaux aimants a servi de cadre de référence. Les données ont été obtenues au moyen d’entrevues semi-dirigées réalisées auprès de 10 infirmières sélectionnées par une procédure intentionnelle. Les résultats viennent corroborer ceux d’autres recherches effectuées sur le sujet. Quant aux solutions pour augmenter la rétention des infirmières, les chercheurs soulignent l’importance d’assouplir les horaires de travail et les politiques de gestion des ressources humaines. Certains éléments appréciés par les participantes tels qu’un bon climat de travail, une grande autonomie dans l’exercice de leurs fonctions et l’entraide entre collègues sont à considérer dans une stratégie globale de recrutement et de maintien à l’emploi des infirmières. L’intégration d’un système d’entretiens périodiques avec les infirmières permettrait aussi à l’employeur de connaître leurs besoins et aspirations, et de les satisfaire au plus tôt.

    Introduction Les plantes constituent une grande source de principes actifs qui peuvent être utilisés pour traiter de nombreuses maladies, dont le diabète. L'objectif de cette étude était de recenser les plantes utilisées en médecine traditionnelle pour traiter le diabète dans la région Maritime du Togo. Méthodes De janvier 2013 à juin 2014, une enquête ethnobotanique a été réalisée auprès de 164 guérisseurs traditionnels dans la région Maritime par des interviews directes à l'aide d'un questionnaire semi structuré. Résultats Les données recueillies ont permis d'identifier 112 espèces végétales appartenant à 51 familles. Les familles les plus représentées ont été les Caesalpiniaceae / Fabaceae avec 9 espèces, suivie des Euphorbiaceae et des Compositae avec 8 espèces chacune. Les espèces les plus citées ont été Allium sativum, Alium cepa, Guilandina bonduc, Moringa oleifera et de Picralima nitida qui ont eu une valeur usuelle de 0,05. En termes de recettes, 132 recettes sont préparées à partir des 112 espèces de plantes. Les recettes à plantes uniques ont été au nombre de 78, tandis que 54 recettes sont obtenues par des associations de plantes. Les parties de plantes les plus utilisées ont été les feuilles suivies par les racines. La principale méthode de préparation reste la décoction. Conclusion La région maritime du Togo dispose d'une biodiversité floristique importante en matière de plantes antidiabétiques. Ces résultats constituent une bonne base de données pour le criblage biologique dans la recherche de molécules antidiabétiques à base des plantes. PMID:26309469

    Pascale Molinier

    2009-09-01

    Full Text Available Les recherches en ergonomie ont montré de longue date l’existence d’une perméabilité psychologique entre les temps professionnels et personnels. Toutefois la situation des travailleuses du care a peu été étudiée sous cet angle. Les femmes qui ont à faire avec les mêmes sortes d’activités, au travail et à domicile, seraient-elles plus vulnérables que d’autres et plus susceptibles de connaître un surmenage ? L’article traite de cette question à partir d’enquêtes de psychodynamique du travail réalisées auprès d’infirmières. Pour les infirmières ayant elles-mêmes des enfants, la confrontation professionnelle avec la maladie et la mort d’enfants est particulièrement anxiogène. Différentes conduites défensives sont décrites et analysées : les stratégies de distanciation affective, de cloisonnement temporel, l’activisme et l’intolérance à la plainte de ses propres enfants. Ces stratégies protectrices visent à instaurer un clivage entre vies professionnelle et privée. Ce clivage est en partie inévitable, mais il augmente en importance, au prix d’une perte du sens du travail, quand les conditions qui autorisent le libre jeu du collectif comme instance d’élaboration de la souffrance dans le travail sont dégradées.Ergonomic research has long shown that professional and personal times are permeable. Yet, the situation of care workers has seldom been studied from that point of view. Are women who have to cope with the same activities both at work and at home more vulnerable than others? more likely to experience burnout? The author tackles the question, beginning with psychodynamic investigations on nurses. For nurses who are mothers themselves, coping with the illness and death of children is particularly anxiety-ridden. Various defensive behaviours are described and analyzed: remaining emotionally aloof, separating time periods, being militant, finding one’s own children’s complaints

We find good agreement between the NLO results for jet {sub pT} distributions and measurements by CDF and D0. We also present jetproduction ratios, or probabilities of finding one additional jet. As a function of vector-boson {sub pT} , the ratios have distinctive features which we describe in terms of a simple model capturing leading logarithms and phase-space and parton-distribution-function suppression.

    This dissertation measures the t{bar t} production cross section at the Run II CDF detector using data from early 2001 through March 2007. The Tevatron at Fermilab is a p{bar p} collider with center of mass energy {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. This data composes a sample with a time-integrated luminosity measured at 2.2 {+-} 0.1 fb{sup -1}. A system of learning machines is developed to recognize t{bar t} events in the 'lepton plus jets' decay channel. Support Vector Machines are described, and their ability to cope with a multi-class discrimination problem is provided. The t{bar t} production cross section is then measured in this framework, and found to be {sigma}{sub t{bar t}} = 7.14 {+-} 0.25 (stat){sub -0.86}{sup +0.61}(sys) pb.

    Coherent transverse beam oscillations in the Tevatron were analyzed with the model-independent analysis (MIA) technique. This allowed one to obtain the model-independent values of coupled betatron amplitudes, phase advances, and dispersion function around the ring from a single dipole kick measurement. In order to solve the MIA mode mixing problem which limits the accuracy of determination of the optical functions, we have developed a new technique of rotational MIA mode untangling. The basic idea is to treat each beam position monitor (BPM) as two BPMs separated in a ring by exactly one turn. This leads to a simple criterion of MIA mode separation: the betatron phase advance between any BPM and its counterpart shifted by one turn should be equal to the betatron tune and therefore should not depend on the BPM position in the ring. Furthermore, we describe a MIA-based technique to locate vibrating magnets in a storage ring.

    We present a comprehensive study of differential distributions for Tevatron top-pair events at the level of stable top quarks. All calculations are performed in NNLO QCD with the help of a fully differential partonic Monte-Carlo and are exact at this order in perturbation theory. We present predictions for all kinematic distributions for which data exists. Particular attention is paid on the top-quark forward-backward asymmetry which we study in detail. We compare the NNLO results with existing approximate NNLO predictions as well as differential distributions computed with different parton distribution sets. Theory errors are significantly smaller than current experimental ones with overall agreement between theory and data.

    We present the first observation in hadronic collisions of the electroweak production of vector boson pairs (VV, V = W,Z) where one boson decays to a dijet final state. The data correspond to 3.5 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity of p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV collected by the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. We observe 1516 {+-} 239(stat) {+-} 144(syst) diboson candidate events and measure a cross section {sigma}(p{bar p} {yields} VV + X) of 18.0 {+-} 2.8(stat) {+-} 2.4(syst) {+-} 1.1(lumi) pb, in agreement with the expectations of the standard model.

    2008-01-01

    We report on our recent evaluation of the s-channel cut contribution to J/psi hadroproduction. We show that it is likely significantly larger than the usual cut contribution of the colour-singlet model (CSM), which is known to underestimate the experimental measurements. Here the s-channel cut develops for configurations with off-shell quarks in the bound state. A correct treatment of its contribution requires the introduction of a four point function, partially constrained by gauge invariance and limiting behaviours at small and large momenta. When the unconstrained degrees of freedom are fixed to reproduce the Tevatron data, we show that RHIC data are remarkably well reproduced down to very low transverse momenta P_T without need of resummation of initial-state gluon effects. This unique feature might be typical of s-channel cut contribution.

  13. A search for double-charged Higgs bosons at the Tevatron

    2006-01-01

    We search for the pair production of doubly charged Higgs particles followed by the lepton-flavor violating decay of each Higgs into electron-and-tau and muon-and-tau pairs using 350 pb{sup -1} of data collected by the CDF II experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron. Separate searches investigate cases where three or four final state leptons are detected, and the limits for each exclusive decay mode reflect the combined results of both searches. Assuming the H{sup {+-}{+-}}{sub L} decays exclusively into like sign electron-and-tau pairs, we set a lower limit on its mass of 114 GeV/c2 at the 95 % confidence level. In the case of exclusive muon-and-tau decays, we set a lower mass limit of 112 GeV/c2 also at the 95% confidence level.

  14. Diffractive production of b bar b in proton-antiproton collisions at the Fermilab Tevatron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We show that the cross section of the diffractive production of b bar b can be described as the sum of two contributions: the first is proportional to the probability of finding a small size b bar b color dipole in the fast hadron wave function before the interaction with a target, while the second is the b bar b production after or during the interaction with the target. The formulas are presented as well as the discussion of the interrelation between these two contributions and the Ingelman-Schlein and coherent diffraction mechanisms. The main prediction is that the coherent diffraction mechanism dominates, at least at the Fermilab Tevatron energies, giving the unique possibility to study it experimentally. copyright 1997 The American Physical Society

  15. Single top quarks at the Tevatron and observation of the s-channel production mode

    CERN. Geneva

    2014-01-01

    The presentation gives an overview of single-top-quark production at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider. The talk covers measurements of the total s+t channel production cross section and the extraction of the CKM matrix element |V_tb|. Furthermore, separate analyses of the s-channel and t-channel production modes are discussed. The data correspond to total integrated luminosities of up to 9.7 fb-1 per experiment and represent in most cases the full Run-II dataset. Through a combination of the CDF and D0 measurements the first observation of single-top-quark production in the s-channel is claimed. This is particularly highlighted in the seminar.

    Particle accelerators pushed the limits of our knowledge in search of the answers to most fundamental questions about micro-world and our Universe. In these pursuits, accelerators progressed to higher and higher energies and particle beam intensities as well as increasingly smaller and smaller beam sizes. As the result, modern existing and planned energy frontier accelerators demand very tight tolerances on alignment and stability of their elements: magnets, accelerating cavities, vacuum chambers, etc. In this article we describe the instruments developed for and used in such accelerators as Fermilab's Tevatron (FNAL, Batavia, IL USA) and for the studies toward an International Linear Collider (ILC). The instrumentation includes Hydrostatic Level Sensors (HLS) for very low frequency measurements. We present design features of the sensors, outline their technical parameters, describe test and calibration procedures and discuss different regimes of operation.

  17. W/Z + jets production at the tevatron bar pp collider

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Both the D0 and CDF experiments at Fermilab Tevatron collider at √s = 1.8TeV have accumulated over 13pb-1 of data during the 1992--1993 collider run. Each experiment collected more than 10,000 W → l + ν and 1,000 Z → l + bar l candidates for each lepton species (e and μ). Using this large data sample of W and Z candidates, the two experiments are actively testing perturbative QCD predictions. Among the studies that are in progress, preliminary results of Z+jets characteristics, multiplicity distributions of associated jets, and a determination of the strong coupling constant using the ratio of the +ljet to W + Ojet cross sections are presented

    A comparison is made between the off-diagonal and helicity spin bases for top quark pair production at the FNAL Tevatron. In the off-diagonal basis, 92% of the top quark pairs are in the spin configuration up-down plus down-up, whereas in the helicity basis only 70% are left-right plus right-left. The off-diagonal basis maximizes the spin asymmetry and hence the measured angular correlations between the decay products, which are more than twice as big in this basis as compared to the helicity basis. In addition, for the process q qbar --> t tbar, we give a very simple analytic expression for the matrix element squared which includes all spin correlations between the production and subsequent decay of the top quarks.

    We show in single top quark production that the spin of the top quark is correlated with the direction of the d-type quark in the event. For single top production in the W* channel, the d-type quark comes dominantly from the antiproton at the Tevatron, whereas for the W-gluon fusion channel the spectator jet is the d-type quark the majority of the time at this machine. Our results are that 98% of the top quarks from the W* process have their spins in the antiproton direction, and 95% of the top quarks in the W-gluon fusion process have their spins in the spectator jet direction. We also compare with the more traditional, but less effective, helicity basis. The direction of the top quark spin is reflected in angular correlations in its decay products.

    We search for the production of single top quarks via flavor-changing neutral current couplings of a gluon to the top quark and a charm (c) or up (u) quark. We analyze 230 pb^{-1} of lepton+jets data from \\ppbar collisions at a center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV collected by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. We observe no significant deviation from standard model predictions, and hence set upper limits on anomalous coupling parameters \\kappa^c_g/\\Lambda and \\kappa^u_g/\\Lambda, where the \\kappa_g define the strength of the tcg and tug couplings, and \\Lambda defines the scale of new physics. The limits at 95% C.L. are: \\kappa^c_g/\\Lambda < 0.15 TeV^{-1} and \\kappa^u_g/\\Lambda < 0.037 TeV^{-1}.
