### OBSERVATION OF THE TOP-QUARK

Abstract:

The D0 Collaboration reports on a search for the standard model top quark in pp̄ collisions at s=1.8TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron with an integrated luminosity of approximately 50 pb-1. We have searched for tt̄ production in the dilepton and single-lepton decay channels with and without tagging of b-quark jets. We observed 17 events with an expected background of 3.8±0.6 events. The probability for an upward fluctuation of the background to produce the observed signal is 2×10-6 (equivalent to ...
