Abstracts
We have measured Bo o mixing by observing like-sign dilepton events in (4S) decay. Assuming that the semileptonic branching fraction of the charged and neutral B mesons are equal and that the (4S) decays to B+ B 55% of the time and to Bo o 45% of the time, we measure the mixing parameter r to be 0. 19 0.06 0.06, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic.
