Abstract
A search for CP violating effects in the mixing of neutral B mesons is perf ormed using a sample of 4.1 million hadronic Z decays collected with the AL EPH detector from 1991 to 1995. By studying time-dependent asymmetries in f lavour-tagged samples of semileptonic and fully inclusive b-hadron decays, two measurements of the semileptonic asymmetry acp are extracted. No eviden ce for CP violation is observed, and the combined value a(CP) = -0.013 +/- 0.026 is obtained.
