  1. D. Acosta, et al, Search for pair production of scalar top quarks in R-parity violating decay modes in p anti-p collisions at s**(1/2) = 1.8-TeV, vol. 92 (February, 2004), pp. 051803 [e051803] .

    We present the results of a search for pair production of scalar top quarks (t-tilde1) in an R-parity violating supersymmetry scenario in 106 pb-1 of pp-bar collisions at sqrt[s]=1.8 TeV collected by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. In this mode each t-tilde1 decays into a tau lepton and a b quark. We search for events with two tau 's, one decaying leptonically (e or ยต) and one decaying hadronically, and two jets. No candidate events pass our final selection criteria. We set a 95\% confidence level lower limit on the t-tilde1 mass at 122 GeV/c2 for Br(t-tilde1--> tau b)=1.
