Search for the Scalar Top Quark in [Formula presented] Collisions at [Formula presented]

Published

Journal Article

We have performed a search for scalar top quark (stop) pair production in the inclusive electron-muon-missing transverse energy final state, using a sample of [Formula presented] events corresponding to [Formula presented] of data collected with the D0 detector at Fermilab. The search is done in the framework of the minimal supersymmetric standard model assuming that the sneutrino is the lightest supersymmetric particle. For the dominant decays of the lightest stop, [Formula presented] and [Formula presented], no evidence for signal is found. We derive cross-section limits as a function of stop ([Formula presented]), chargino ([Formula presented]), and sneutrino ([Formula presented]) masses. © 2002 The American Physical Society.
