Abstract

Using isolated leptons reconstructed in the Mark II detector to tag bb events, we measure the fraction of bb events in hadronic Z0 decays to be 0.23-0.09+0.11, in good agreement with the standard-model prediction of 0.22. We find (Zbb)=0.43-0.17+0.21 GeV. © 1990 The American Physical Society.
