Title: Determination of the mass of the bottom quark
Speaker: Dr. Adrian Signer (Durham)
The huge sensitivity of the cross section for heavy quark production near threshold on the heavy quark mass offers a unique opportunity to determine the bottom mass accurately. We describe the calculation at NNLO in the framework of Non Relativistic QCD and discuss the uncertainties in the determinations of mb. Prospects for the study of the top quark at a future linear collider are given.
