We present a search for the decay B + → τ + ν τ in 88.9 × 10 6 Υ (4S) decays recorded with the BABAR detector at the SLAC B-Factory. A sample of semi-exclusive, semi-leptonic B decays (B − → D 0 ℓ − ¯ ν ℓ X), where X is either a photon, π 0 , or nothing, is used to identify the daughter particles that are associated with the other B meson in each event.(More)
The NA48 experiment at CERN has performed a new measurement of direct CP violation, based on data taken in 1997 by simultaneously collecting K L and K S decays into π 0 π 0 and π + π −. The result for the CP violating parameter Re (ε ′ /ε) is (18.5 ± 4.5(stat) ± 5.8(syst)) × 10 −4. 1 Introduction CP violation has been observed so far only in the decays of(More)
We present a measurement of the time-dependent CP-violating (CPV) asymmetries in B0-->K(0)(S)pi(0) decays based on 124x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC. In a sample containing 122+/-16 signal decays, we obtain the magnitudes of the direct CPV asymmetry(More)
A measurement of the Higgs boson mass is presented based on the combined data samples of the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC in the H→γγ and H→ZZ→4ℓ decay channels. The results are obtained from a simultaneous fit to the reconstructed invariant mass peaks in the two channels and for the two experiments. The measured masses from the individual(More)
We present measurements of the semileptonic decays B--->D0tau-nutau, B--->D*0tau-nutau, B0-->D+tau-nutau, and B0-->D*+tau-nutau, which are potentially sensitive to non-standard model amplitudes. The data sample comprises 232x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays collected with the BABAR detector. From a combined fit to B- and B0 channels, we obtain the branching(More)
The direct CP violation parameter Re(ε ′ /ε) has been measured from the decay rates of neutral kaons into two pions using the NA48 detector at the CERN SPS. With 3.3 million KL → π 0 π 0 events collected during the 1998 and 1999 running periods, a result of Re(ε ′ /ε) = (15.0 ± 2.7)×10 −4 has been obtained. The result combined with the published 1997 sample(More)
BACKGROUND Members of the subtilisin family of serine proteases usually have a conserved asparagine residue that stabilizes the oxyanion transition state of peptide-bond hydrolysis. Yeast Kex2 protease is a member of the subtilisin family that differs from the degradative subtilisin proteases in its high substrate specificity, it processes pro-alpha-factor,(More)
We present updated measurements of branching fractions and CP-violating asymmetries for neutral B meson decays to two-body final states of charged pions and kaons. The results are obtained from a data sample of about 60 million Υ (4S) → BB decays collected between 1999 and 2001 by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory at SLAC. The(More)
A search for Higgs boson decays to invisible particles is performed using 20.3 fb −1 of pp collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV recorded by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The process considered is Higgs boson production in association with a vector boson (V = W or Z) that decays hadronically, resulting in events with two or(More)
