OBSERVATION OF TOP-QUARK PRODUCTION IN (P)OVER-BAR-P COLLISIONS WITH THE COLLIDER DETECTOR AT FERMILAB

Abstract:

We establish the existence of the top quark using a 67 pb-1 data sample of p̄p collisions at s=1.8 TeV collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF). Employing techniques similar to those we previously published, we observe a signal consistent with tt̄ decay to WWbb̄, but inconsistent with the background prediction by 4.8σ. Additional evidence for the top quark is provided by a peak in the reconstructed mass distribution. We measure the top quark mass to be 176±8(stat)±10(syst) GeV/c...
