Abstract / Description:We observe a signal for the doubly charmed baryon Xi(cc)(+) in the charged decay mode Xi(cc)(+)-->Lambda(c)(+)K(-)pi(+) in data from SELEX, the charm hadroproduction experiment at Fermilab. We observe an excess of 15.9 events over an expected background of 6.1+/-0.5 events, a statistical significance of 6.3sigma. The observed mass of this state is 3519+/-1 MeV/c(2). The Gaussian mass width of this state is 3 MeV/c(2), consistent with resolution; its lifetime is less than 33 fs at 90% confidence.
