Abstract

Neutral B meson oscillations in the B-s(0) - [(B-s(0))over bar], and B-d(0) - [(B-d(0))over bar] systems were studied using a sample of about 4.0 million hadronic Z decays recorded by the DELPHI detector between 1992 and 2000. Events with a high transverse momentum lepton were removed and a sample of 770 k events with an inclusively reconstructed vertex was selected. The mass difference between the two physical states in the B-d(0) - [(B-d(0))over bar]system was measured to be: Deltam(d) = (0.531 +/- 0.025(stat.) +/- 0.007(syst.))ps(-1). The following limit on the width difference of these states was also obtained: \DeltaGamma(Bd)\/Gamma(Bd) lt 0.18 at 95% CL. As no evidence for B-s(0) -[(B-s(0))over bar] oscillations was found, a limit on the mass difference of the two physical states was given:, Deltam(s) gt 5.0 ps(-1) at 95% CL. The corresponding sensitivity of this analysis is equal to 6.6 ps(- 1).
