Abstract
We report a determination of the B-d(n)-N-n(d) mixing parameter Deltam(d) b ased on the time evolution of dilepton yields in Y (4S) decays. The measure ment is based on a 5.9 fb(-1) data sample collected by the Belie detector a t KEKB. The proper-time difference distributions for same-sign and opposite -sign dilepton events are simultaneously fitted to an expression containing Deltam(d) as a free parameter. Using both muons and electrons, we obtain D eltam(d) = 0.463 +/- 0.008 (stat) +/- 0.016 (syst) ps(-1). This is the firs t determination of Deltam(d) from time evolution measurements at the Y (4S) . We also place limits on possible CPT violations.
