Measurement of WZ and ZZ production in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}$=8 TeV in final states with b-tagged jets


CMS Collaboration; Canelli, M F; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P; et al (2014). Measurement of WZ and ZZ production in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}$=8 TeV in final states with b-tagged jets. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 74:2973.

Abstract

Measurements are reported of the WZ and ZZ production cross sections in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}$=8 TeV in final states where one Z boson decays to b-tagged jets. The other gauge boson, either W or Z, is detected through its leptonic decay (either W→eν , μν or Z→$e^{+}e^{-}$ , $μ^{+}μ^{-}$, or $v\bar{v}$). The results are based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 18.9 fb−1 collected with the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The measured cross sections, σ(pp→WZ)=30.7±9.3(stat.)±7.1(syst.)±4.1(th.)±1.0(lum.)pb and σ(pp→ZZ)=6.5±1.7(stat.)±1.0(syst.)±0.9(th.)±0.2(lum.)pb , are consistent with next-to-leading order quantum chromodynamics calculations.

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.
