Abstract [en]

Using approximately 1.3 fb(-1) of data collected by the D0 detector between 2002 and 2006, we measure the lifetime of the B(c)(+/-) meson in the B(c)(+/-)-> J/psi mu(+/-)+X final state. A simultaneous unbinned likelihood fit to the J/psi+mu invariant mass and lifetime distributions yields a signal of 881 +/- 80(stat) candidates and a lifetime measurement of tau(B(c)(+/-))=0.448(-0.036)(+0.038)(stat)+/- 0.032(syst) ps.
