Electroweak and Heavy Flavor Physics at SLD

Abstract

We review recent electroweak and B physics results obtained in polarized $e^+ e^-$ interactions at the SLC by the SLD experiment. Unique and precise measurements of the electroweak parameters $A_e$, $A_b$, $A_c$, $R_b$ and $R_c$ provide powerful constraints on the Standard Model. The excellent 3-D vertexing capabilities of SLD are further exploited to extract precise $\bu$ and $\bd$ lifetimes, as well as measurements of the time evolution of $B^0 - \overline{B^0}$ mixing.

Notes

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file created from LaTeX source which may have used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification, though the fonts will be legible at slightly higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the Type 3 fonts, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
