Physics with B-mesons in ATLAS.
Lidia Smirnova and Alexey Boldyrev

B-physics is an important part of studies with the LHC beams at low luminosities. Effective B-meson reconstruction in ATLAS can produce a clean sample of events for detailed physics analysis with first data. The analysis includes measurements of B-meson masses and proper lifetimes to verify the performance of the Inner Detector, and to estimate backgrounds and trigger efficiencies for rare decays.
Key words: LHC, ATLAS detector, B-meson decays
