Measurement of the differential cross section for top quark pair production in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 75:542.

Abstract

The normalized differential cross section for top quark pair ($t\bar{t}$) production is measured in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV at the CERN LHC using the CMS detector in data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 $fb^{−1}$. The measurements are performed in the lepton+jets ($e/\mu$ +jets) and in the dilepton ($e^{+}e^{−}, \mu+\mu−$, and $e^{\pm}\mu^{\pm}$) decay channels. The $t\bar{t}$ cross section is measured as a function of the kinematic properties of the charged leptons, the jets associated to b quarks, the top quarks, and the $t\bar{t}$ system. The data are compared with several predictions from perturbative quantum chromodynamic up to approximate next-to-next-to-leading-order precision. No significant deviations are observed relative to the standard model predictions.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
