Abstract:
We have measured the b-quark production cross section for; y; < 1 using a sample of muons with associated jets collected with the D⊘ detector in pp̄ collisions at √s = 630 GeV at the Fermilab Tevatron. The measured b-quark cross section is consistent in shape with O(α³s) QCD predictions, but exceeds them in normalization by roughly a factor of 2.5.
