Abstract
We present measurements of the b (b) over bar production cross section and angular correlations using the D phi detector at the Fermilab Tevatron p (p ) over bar Collider operating at root s = 1.8 TeV. The b quark production c ross section for /y(b)/ < 1.0 and P-T(b) > 6 GeV/c is extracted from the si ngle muon and dimuon data samples. The results agree in shape with me next- to-leading order QCD calculation of heavy flavor production but are greater than the central values of these predictions. The angular correlations bet ween b and (b) over bar quarks, measured from the azimuthal opening angle b etween their decay muons, also agree in shape with the next-to-leading orde r QCD prediction.
