B Physics in 2007: 

Direct Measurement of angles: s(sin(2b)) ≈ 0.03 from J/y Ks in B factories Other angles not precisely known Knowledge of the sides of unitary triangle: (Dominated by theoretical uncertainties) s(|Vcb|) ≈ few % error s(|Vub|) ≈ 5-10 % error s(|Vtd|/|Vts|) ≈ 5-10% error (assuming Dms andlt; 40 ps-1) In case new physics is present in mixing, independent measurement of g can reveal it… B Physics in 2007

B Physics @ LHC: 

Large bottom production cross section: 1012 bb/year at 2x1032 cm-2s-1 Triggering is an issue All b hadrons are produced: Bu (40%), Bd(40%), Bs(10%), Bc and b-baryons (10%) Many tracks available for primary vertex Many particles not associated to b hadrons b hadrons are not coherent: mixing dilutes tagging B Physics @ LHC bb production: (forward) LHCb: Forward Spectrometer with: Efficient trigger and selection of many B decay final states Good tracking and Particle ID performance Excellent momentum and vertex resolution Adequate flavour tagging B Decay eg.: Bs-andgt;Dsh qb qb

Simulation and Reconstruction: 

Simulation and Reconstruction All trigger, reconstruction and selection studies are based on full Pythia+GEANT simulations including LHC 'pile-up' events and full pattern recognition (tracking, RICH, etc…) Sensitivity studies are based on fast simulations using efficiencies and resolutions and from the full simulation No true MC info used anywhere ! VELO RICH1 TT T1 T2 T3

Evolution since Technical Proposal: 

Evolution since Technical Proposal Reduced material Improved level-1 trigger

Track finding strategy: 

Track finding strategy VELO seeds Long track (forward) Long track (matched) T seeds Upstream track Downstream track T track VELO track T tracks  useful for RICH2 pattern recognition Long tracks  highest quality for physics (good IP andamp; p resolution) Downstream tracks  needed for efficient KS finding (good p resolution) Upstream tracks  lower p, worse p resolution, but useful for RICH1 pattern recognition VELO tracks  useful for primary vertex reconstruction (good IP resolution)

Result of track finding: 

Result of track finding Typical event display: Red = measurements (hits) Blue = all reconstructed tracks Efficiency vs p : Ghost rate vs pT : Eff = 94% (p andgt; 10 GeV) Ghost rate = 3% (for pT andgt; 0.5 GeV) VELO TT T1 T2 T3 On average: 26 long tracks 11 upstream tracks 4 downstream tracks 5 T tracks 26 VELO tracks 2050 hits assigned to a long track: 98.7% correctly assigned Ghosts: Negligible effect on b decay reconstruction

Experimental Resolution: 

Experimental Resolution dp/p = 0.35% – 0.55% p spectrum B tracks sIP= 14m + 35 m/pT 1/pT spectrum B tracks Momentum resolution Impact parameter resolution

Particle ID: 

Particle ID B-andgt;hh decays: RICH 1 RICH 2 e (K-andgt;K) = 88% e (p-andgt;K) = 3% Example:


Trigger 40 MHz 1 MHz 40 kHz 200 Hz output Level-1: Impact parameter Rough pT ~ 20% HLT: Final state reconstruction Calorimeter Muon system Pile-up system Vertex Locator Trigger Tracker Level 0 objects Full detector information L0 Level-0: pT of m, e, h, g ln pT ln pT ln IP/IP ln IP/IP L1 Signal Min. Bias B-andgt;pp Bs-andgt;DsK

Flavour tag: 

Flavour tag tagging strategy: opposite side lepton tag ( b → l ) opposite side kaon tag ( b → c → s ) (RICH, hadron trigger) same side kaon tag (for Bs) opposite B vertex charge tagging effective efficiency: eff = tag (1-2wtag )2

Efficiencies, event yields and Bbb/S ratios: 

Efficiencies, event yields and Bbb/S ratios Nominal year = 1012 bb pairs produced (107 s at L=21032 cm2s1 with bb=500 b) Yields include factor 2 from CP-conjugated decays Branching ratios from PDG or SM predictions

CP Sensitivity studies: 

CP Sensitivity studies CP asymmetries due to interference of Tree, Mixing, Penguin, New Physics amplitudes: 1. Time dependent asymmetries in Bs-andgt;DsK decays. Interference between b-andgt;u and b-andgt;c tree diagrams due to Bs mixing Sensitive to g + fs (Aleksan et al) 2. Time dependent asymmetries in B-andgt;pp and Bs-andgt;KK decays. Interference between b-andgt;u tree and b-andgt;d(s) penguin diagrams Sensitive to g, fd, fs (Fleischer) 3. Time Integrated asymmetries in B-andgt; DK* decays. Interference between b-andgt;u and b-andgt;c tree diagrams due to D-D mixing Sensitive to g (Gronau-Wyler-Dunietz) Time dependent asymmetry in Bd-andgt;J/y Ks decays Sensitive to fd Time dependent asymmetry in Bs-andgt;J/y f decays Sensitive to fs Mixing phases: Measurements of Angle g: ftree fmix fpen fnew + + +

Measurement of angle g: New Physics?: 

Measurement of angle g: New Physics? 1. Bs-andgt;DsK 2. B-andgt;pp, Bs-andgt;KK 3. B-andgt;DK* g not affected by new physics in loop diagrams g affected by possible new physics in penguin g affected by possible new physics in D-D mixing Determine the CKM parameters A,r,h independent of new physics Extract the contribution of new physics to the oscillations and penguins

Systematic Effects: 

Possible sources of systematic uncertainty in CP measurement: Asymmetry in b-b production rate Charge dependent detector efficiencies… can bias tagging efficiencies can fake CP asymmetries CP asymmetries in background process Experimental handles: Use of control samples: Calibrate b-b production rate Determine tagging dilution from the data: e.g. Bs-andgt;Dsp for Bs-andgt;DsK, B-andgt;Kp for B-andgt;pp, B-andgt;J/yK* for B-andgt;J/yKs, etc Reversible B field in alternate runs Charge dependent efficiencies cancel in most B/B asymmetries Study CP asymmetry of backgrounds in B mass 'sidebands' Perform simultaneous fits for specific background signals: e.g. Bs-andgt;Dsp in Bs-andgt;DsK , Bs-andgt;Kp andamp; Bs-andgt;KK, … Systematic Effects
