The Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) detector of the CMS experiment at the LHC proton collider (CERN, Switzerland) will employ an online gas analysis and monitoring system of the freon-based gas mixture used. We give an overview of the CMS RPC gas system, describe the project parameters and first results on gas-chromatograph analysis. Finally, we report on(More)
We review genetic programming principles, their application to FOCUS data samples , and use the method to study the doubly Cabibbo suppressed decay D + → K + π + π − relative to its Cabibbo favored counterpart, D + → K − π + π +. We find that this technique is able to improve upon more traditional analysis methods. To our knowledge, this is the first(More)
A high statistics measurement of the D(s)+ lifetime from the Fermilab fixed-target FOCUS photoproduction experiment is presented. We describe the analysis of the two decay modes, D(s)+ --> phi(1020)pi+ and D(s)+ -->K*(892)0K+, used for the measurement. The measured lifetime is 507.4 +/- 5.5(stat) +/- 5.1(syst) fs using 8961 +/- 105 D(s)+ --> phi(1020)pi+(More)
A high-statistics sample of photoproduced charm from the FOCUS experiment has been used to search for direct CP violation in the decay rates for D+-->K(S)pi+ and D+-->K(S)K+. We have measured the following asymmetry parameters relative to D+-->K-pi+pi+: A(CP)(K(S)pi+) = (-1.6+/-1.5+/-0.9)%, A(CP)(K(S)K+) = (+6.9+/-6.0+/-1.5)%, and A(CP)(K(S)K+) =(More)
FOCUS is a very high statistics charm experiment, run at Fermilab in 1996-1997, which reconstructed over 1,000,000 charm events). In this paper some of the latest results in the decays of charm mesons and baryons will be reported : new decay channels, singly and doubly Cabibbo suppressed decays, lifetimes, 3-body Dalitz analysis. The fixed target experiment(More)
