    Abstract

    We measure the correlation between the spin of the top quark and the spin of the anti-top quark in tt̄→W+bW-b̄→ℓ+νbℓ-ν̄b̄ final states produced in pp̄ collisions at a center of mass energy s=1.96 TeV, where ℓ is an electron or muon. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 5.4 fb-1 and were collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The correlation is extracted from the angles of the two leptons in the t and tcirc; rest frames, yielding a correlation strength C=0.10-0.45 +0.45, in agreement with the NLO QCD prediction within two standard deviations, but also in agreement with the no correlation hypothesis.

    abstract = "We measure the correlation between the spin of the top quark and the spin of the anti-top quark in tt̄→W+bW-b̄→ℓ+νbℓ-ν̄b̄ final states produced in pp̄ collisions at a center of mass energy s=1.96 TeV, where ℓ is an electron or muon. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 5.4 fb-1 and were collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The correlation is extracted from the angles of the two leptons in the t and tcirc; rest frames, yielding a correlation strength C=0.10-0.45 +0.45, in agreement with the NLO QCD prediction within two standard deviations, but also in agreement with the no correlation hypothesis.",

    N2 - We measure the correlation between the spin of the top quark and the spin of the anti-top quark in tt̄→W+bW-b̄→ℓ+νbℓ-ν̄b̄ final states produced in pp̄ collisions at a center of mass energy s=1.96 TeV, where ℓ is an electron or muon. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 5.4 fb-1 and were collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The correlation is extracted from the angles of the two leptons in the t and tcirc; rest frames, yielding a correlation strength C=0.10-0.45 +0.45, in agreement with the NLO QCD prediction within two standard deviations, but also in agreement with the no correlation hypothesis.
