The [[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b] direction is measured by using its finite decay distance. To get an estimate of the [[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b] energy we can use [[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b]'s that come from [[summation].sup.[+ or -].sub.b] [right arrow] [[pi].sup.[+ or -]][[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b] and [[summation].sup.*[+ or -].sub.b] [[LAMBDA].sup.0.sub.b] decays.
