The D0 Collaboration presents first evidence for the production of single top quarks at the Fermilab Tevatron pp[over ] collider. Using a 0.9 fb(-1) dataset, we apply a multivariate analysis to separate signal from background and measure sigma(pp[over ]-->tb+X,tqb+X)=4.9+/-1.4 pb. The probability to measure a cross section at this value or higher in the(More)
The elastic electroproduction of ρ mesons is studied at HERA with the H1 detector for a photon virtuality in the range 1 < Q < 60 GeV and for a hadronic centre of mass energy in the range 30 < W < 140 GeV. The shape of the (ππ) mass distribution in the ρ resonance region is measured as a function of Q. The full set of ρ spin density matrix elements is(More)
This paper presents a solution for the problem of learning and controlling a 2R-plan robot manipulator in the presence of fixed obstacle. The objective is to move the arm from an initial position (source) to a final position (target) without collision. Potential field methods are rapidly gaining popularity in obstacle avoidance applications for mobile(More)
We report observation of the electroweak production of single top quarks in pp[over ] collisions at sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV based on 2.3 fb(-1) of data collected by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. Using events containing an isolated electron or muon and missing transverse energy, together with jets originating from the fragmentation of b quarks,(More)
The electroproduction of J/ψ and ψ(2S) mesons is studied in elastic, quasi-elastic and inclusive reactions for four momentum transfers 2 < Q < 80 GeV and photon-proton centre of mass energies 25 < W < 180 GeV. The data were taken with the H1 detector at the electron proton collider HERA in the years 1995 to 1997. The total virtual photon-proton cross(More)
A precise measurement of the inclusive deep-inelastic ep scattering cross section is reported in the kinematic range 1.5 ≤ Q ≤ 150GeV and 3 · 10 ≤ x ≤ 0.2. The data were recorded with the H1 detector at HERA in 1996 and 1997, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 20 pb. The double differential cross section, from which the proton structure function(More)
We present an observation for ZZ-->l+l-l'+l'- (l, l'=e or mu) production in p[over]p collisions at a center-of-mass energy of sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV. Using 1.7 fb(-1) of data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider, we observe three candidate events with an expected background of 0.14(+0.03)_(-0.02) events. The significance of this(More)
We present a measurement of the ratio of events with correlated t and t ̅t spins to the total number of t ̅t events. This ratio f is evaluated using a matrix-element-based approach in 729 t ̅t candidate events with a single lepton ℓ (electron or muon) and at least four jets. The analyzed p ̅p collisions data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 5.3(More)
We combine searches by the CDF and D0 Collaborations for a Higgs boson decaying to W+W-. The data correspond to an integrated total luminosity of 4.8 (CDF) and 5.4 (D0) fb(-1) of pp collisions at square root(s) = 1.96 TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. No excess is observed above background expectation, and resulting limits on Higgs boson production(More)
A search for associated production of charginos and neutralinos is performed using data recorded with the D0 detector at a pp center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. This analysis considers final states with missing transverse energy and three charged leptons, of which at least two are electrons or muons. No evidence for(More)
