Several ideas are proposed and tested by the simulation, how to get in E853 the key information of the extraction experiment: the ”septum width” of a crystal and dependence of extraction efficiency on it, the impact parameters of protons at crystal, and the contribution of the first and multi passes to the extraction.
Computer simulation of the tevatron crystal extraction experiment
In this talk I review the status of our ability to extract the CKM matrix elements |Vub | and |Vcb | from semileptonic decays. I will review both exclusive and inclusive methods and put a strong emphasis on how to ensure keeping the extractions model independent.
Present and Future in Semileptonic B Decays
Two different methods have been used to extract this parameter from data: the exclusive measurement, where |Vcb | is extracted by studying exclusive B → D⋆ℓν and B → Dℓν decay processes; and the inclusive measurement, which uses the semileptonic width of b-hadron decays.
Present Status of experimental determination of Vcb
The maximum entropy approach [304, 79] to extracting masses from correlators produces an estimate of the spectral density, so in principle could be used to extract the decay widths of particles.
