Abstract

An analysis of the bottom baryon decay Λb→ J/ψ(→ μ+μ-)Λ(→ pπ-) is performed to measure the Λbpolarization and three angular parameters in data from pp collisions at √s = 7 and 8 TeV, collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The Λbpolarization is measured to be 0.00 ± 0.06 (stat) ± 0.06 (syst) and the parity-violating asymmetry parameter is determined to be 0.14 ± 0.14 (stat) ± 0.10 (syst). The measurements are compared to various theoretical predictions, including those from perturbative quantum chromodynamics.
