We measure the charge asymmetry A ≡ (N++ - N--)/(N++ + N--) of like-sign dimuon events in 6.1 fb-1 of pp collisions recorded with the D0 detector at a center-of-mass energy square root(s) = 1.96   TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. From A we extract the like-sign dimuon charge asymmetry in semileptonic b-hadron decays: A(sl)(b) = -0.009 57 ± 0.002(More)
We present an improved determination of the total width of the top quark, Γt, using 5.4 fb −1 of integrated luminosity collected by the D0 Collaboration at the Tevatron p¯ p Collider. The total width Γt is extracted from the partial decay width Γ(t → W b) and the branching fraction B(t → W b). Γ(t → W b) is obtained from the t-channel single top quark(More)
We perform a combination of searches for standard model Higgs boson production in p¯ p collisions recorded by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at a center of mass energy of √ s = 1.96 TeV. The different production and decay channels have been analyzed separately, with integrated luminosities of up to 9.7 fb −1 and for Higgs boson masses 90(More)
We present a measurement of the direct CP-violating charge asymmetry in B(±) mesons decaying to J/ψK(±) and J/ψπ(±) where J/ψ decays to μ(+) μ(-), using the full run II data set of 10.4 fb(-1) of proton-antiproton collisions collected using the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. A difference in the yield of B(-) and B(+) mesons in these decays(More)
We present a search for anomalous components of the quartic gauge boson coupling WW in events with an electron, a positron and missing transverse energy. The analyzed data correspond to 9:7 fb À1 of integrated luminosity collected by the D0 detector in p " p collisions at ffiffi ffi s p ¼ 1:96 TeV. The presence of anomalous quartic gauge couplings would(More)
Using data collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider, corresponding to 5.3 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity, we search for violation of Lorentz invariance by examining the tt[over ¯] production cross section in lepton+jets final states. We quantify this violation using the standard-model extension framework, which predicts a dependence(More)
We measure the top quark mass (m(t)) in p ̄p collisions at a center of mass energy √s = 1.96 TeV using dilepton t ̄t→W(+)bW(-) ̄b→ℓ(+)ν(ℓ)bℓ(-) ̄ν(ℓ) ̄b events, where ℓ denotes an electron, a muon, or a tau that decays leptonically. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 5.4 fb(-1) collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron(More)

We report evidence for the simultaneous production of J/ψ and ϒ mesons in 8.1  fb^{-1} of data collected at sqrt[s]=1.96  TeV by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab pp[over ¯] Tevatron Collider. Events with these characteristics are expected to be produced predominantly by gluon-gluon interactions. In this analysis, we extract the effective cross section(More)
