${{\mathit b}}$ -baryon ADMIXTURE MEAN LIFE

INSPIRE search
Each measurement of the ${{\mathit b}}$ -baryon mean life is an average over an admixture of various ${{\mathit b}}$ $~$baryons which decay weakly. Different techniques emphasize different admixtures of produced particles, which could result in a different ${{\mathit b}}$ -baryon mean life. More ${{\mathit b}}$ -baryon flavor specific channels are not included in the measurement.
