Abstract

Measurements of the differential cross sections for the production of exactly four jets in proton-proton collisions are presented as a function of the transverse momentum ${p}_{\mathrm{T}}$ and pseudorapidity $\eta$, together with the correlations in azimuthal angle and the ${p}_{\mathrm{T}}$ balance among the jets. The data sample was collected in 2010 at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC, with an integrated luminosity of $36\text{ }\text{ }{\mathrm{pb}}^{$-${}1}$. The cross section for exactly four jets, with two hard jets of ${p}_{\mathrm{T}}$ > $\text{50}$ $\text{GeV}$ each, together with two jets of ${p}_{\mathrm{T}}$ > 20 $\text{ }\mathrm{GeV}$ each, within $\eta$ < 4.7 is measured to be $\sigma$ = $\text{330}$ $\pm$ $\text{5}$ (stat.) $\pm$ $\text{45}$ (syst.) $\mathrm{nb}$. It is found that fixed-order matrix element calculations including parton showers describe the measured differential cross sections in some regions of phase space only, and that adding contributions from double parton scattering brings the Monte Carlo predictions closer to the data.

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.
