We make up-to-date QCD predictions for open charm and bottom production at RHIC in nucleon-nucleon collisions at root S=200 GeV. We also calculate the electron spectrum resulting from heavy flavor decays to allow direct comparison to the data. A rigorous benchmark, including the theoretical uncertainties, is established against which nuclear collision data can be compared to obtain evidence for nuclear effects.

Abstract

We make up-to-date QCD predictions for open charm and bottom production at RHIC in nucleon-nucleon collisions at root S=200 GeV. We also calculate the electron spectrum resulting from heavy flavor decays to allow direct comparison to the data. A rigorous benchmark, including the theoretical uncertainties, is established against which nuclear collision data can be compared to obtain evidence for nuclear effects.
