Beauty Production and Identification at CMS


Schmidt, A (2009). Beauty Production and Identification at CMS. Nuclear Physics B - Proceedings Supplements, 187:216-223.

Abstract

At the LHC, b-hadrons will be produced in a very high quantity at a yet unreached center-of-mass energy, enabling precision measurements to improve our understanding of the physics of b-quarks. The capability to measure the inclusive b-hadron production cross section is discussed on the basis of realistic detector simulations. Effects which are limiting the accessible range of differential cross sections are outlined.

The identification of b-jets is a crucial tool for a large number of topics, like top quark physics, and potential discoveries of the Higgs Boson and Supersymmetry. The applied methods of identifying b-jets are addressed and a discussion of the expected performance in terms of efficiencies and misidentification probabilities under realistic conditions is given. Approaches to measure these efficiencies with real data are also presented.

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.
