    Abstract

    Based on a sample of four million events collected by ALEPH from 1991 to 1995, a measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry in Z → bb̄ decays using inclusive final states is presented. High-performance tagging of bb̄ events in a wide angular range is achieved using neural network techniques. An optimal hemisphere charge estimator is built by merging primary and secondary vertex information, leading kaon identification and jet charge in a neural network. The average charge asymmetry, the flavour tagging efficiencies and mean b-hemisphere charges are measured from data and used to extract the pole b asymmetry in the Standard Model A0,b FB= 0.1011 ± 0.0027 (stat) ± 0.0012 (syst), corresponding to a value of the effective weak mixing angle of sin2θeff W= 0.23189 ± 0.00056.

    N2 - Based on a sample of four million events collected by ALEPH from 1991 to 1995, a measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry in Z → bb̄ decays using inclusive final states is presented. High-performance tagging of bb̄ events in a wide angular range is achieved using neural network techniques. An optimal hemisphere charge estimator is built by merging primary and secondary vertex information, leading kaon identification and jet charge in a neural network. The average charge asymmetry, the flavour tagging efficiencies and mean b-hemisphere charges are measured from data and used to extract the pole b asymmetry in the Standard Model A0,b FB= 0.1011 ± 0.0027 (stat) ± 0.0012 (syst), corresponding to a value of the effective weak mixing angle of sin2θeff W= 0.23189 ± 0.00056.
