Abstract

The semileptonic branching fractions for primary and cascade b decays BR(b → l(-)), BR(b → c → l(+)) and BR(b → (c) over bar → l(-) were measured in hadronic Z decays collected by the DELPHI experiment at LEP. The sample was enriched in b decays using the lifetime information and various techniques were used to separate leptons from direct or cascade b decays. By fitting the momentum spectra of di-leptons in opposite jets, the average b mixing parameter [([chi])over bar] was also extracted. The following results have been obtained: BR(b → l(-)l(-)) = (10.70 +/- 0.08(stat) +/- 0.21(syst)(+0.44)(- 0.30)(model))% BR(b → c → l(+)) = (7.98 +/- 0.22(stat) +/- 0.21(syst)(-0.20)(+0.14)(model))% BR(b → (c) over bar → l(- )) = (1.61 +/- 0.20(stat) +/- 0.17(syst)(-0.44)(+0.30)(model))% [([chi])over bar] = 0.127 +/- 0.013(stat) +/- 0.005(syst) +/- 0.004(model).
