$\boldsymbol A{}^{(0,{{\boldsymbol c}})}_{\boldsymbol FB}$ CHARGE ASYMMETRY IN ${{\boldsymbol e}^{+}}$ ${{\boldsymbol e}^{-}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\boldsymbol c}}{{\overline{\boldsymbol c}}}$ INSPIRE search

OUR FIT, which is obtained by a simultaneous fit to several ${{\mathit c}}$- and ${{\mathit b}}$-quark measurements as explained in the note ``The ${{\mathit Z}}$ boson'' and ref. LEP-SLC 2006 , refers to the $\mathbf {{{\mathit Z}} pole}$ asymmetry. The experimental values, on the other hand, correspond to the measurements carried out at the respective energies.

1  ABDALLAH 2004F tag ${{\mathit b}}-$ and ${{\mathit c}}-$quarks using semileptonic decays combined with charge flow information from the hemisphere opposite to the lepton. Enriched samples of ${{\mathit c}}{{\overline{\mathit c}}}$ and ${{\mathit b}}{{\overline{\mathit b}}}$ events are obtained using lifetime information.
2  ABBIENDI 2003P tag heavy flavors using events with one or two identified leptons. This allows the simultaneous fitting of the ${{\mathit b}}$ and ${{\mathit c}}~$quark forward-backward asymmetries as well as the average ${{\mathit B}^{0}}-{{\overline{\mathit B}}^{0}}$ mixing.
3  HEISTER 2002H measure simultaneously ${{\mathit b}}$ and ${{\mathit c}}$ quark forward-backward asymmetries using their semileptonic decays to tag the quark charge. The flavor separation is obtained with a discriminating multivariate analysis.
4  ABREU 1999Y tag ${{\mathit Z}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit b}}{{\overline{\mathit b}}}$ and ${{\mathit Z}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit c}}{{\overline{\mathit c}}}$ events by an exclusive reconstruction of several ${{\mathit D}}~$ meson decay modes ( ${{\mathit D}^{*+}}$ , ${{\mathit D}^{0}}$, and ${{\mathit D}^{+}}$ with their charge-conjugate states).
5  BARATE 1998O tag ${{\mathit Z}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit c}}{{\overline{\mathit c}}}$ events requiring the presence of high-momentum reconstructed ${{\mathit D}^{*+}}$, ${{\mathit D}^{+}}$, or ${{\mathit D}^{0}}$ mesons.
6  ALEXANDER 1997C identify the ${\mathit {\mathit b}}$ and ${\mathit {\mathit c}}$ events using a ${{\mathit D}}/{{\mathit D}^{*}}$ tag.
7  ADRIANI 1992D use both electron and muon semileptonic decays.
