title = "Measurement of the B+total cross section and B+differential cross section dσ/dpTin p{\=p} collisions at √s=1.8 TeV",

abstract = "We present measurements of the B+meson total cross section and differential cross section dσ/dpT. The measurements use a 98±4 pb-1sample of p{\=p} collisions at √s=1.8 TeV collected by the CDF detector. Charged B meson candidates are reconstructed through the decay B±→J|ψ±with J|ψ→µ+µ-. The total cross section, measured in the central rapidity region |y|<1.0 for pT(B)>6.0 GeV/c, is 3.6±0.6(stat ⊕ syst) µb. The measured differential cross section is substantially larger than typical QCD predictions calculated to next-to-leading order.",
