LHCb Collaboration; Aaij, R; Adeva, B; Adinolfi, M; Anderson, J; Bernet, R; Bowen, E; Bursche, A; Chiapolini, N; Chrzaszcz, M; Dey, B; Elsasser, C; Graverini, E; Lionetto, F; Lowdon, P; Mauri, A; Müller, K; Serra, N; Steinkamp, O; Storaci, B; Straumann, U; Tresch, M; Vollhardt, A; Weiden, A; et al (2015). Measurement of forward $J/\psi$ production cross-sections in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2015(10):172.

Abstract

The production of $J/\psi$ mesons in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV is studied with the LHCb detector. Cross-section measurements are performed as a function of the transverse momentum $p_\mathrm{T}$ and the rapidity $y$ of the $J/\psi$ meson in the region $p_\mathrm{T} < 14 \mathrm{GeV}/c$ and $2.0 < y < 4.5$, for both prompt $J/\psi$ mesons and $J/\psi$ mesons from $b$-hadron decays. The production cross-sections integrated over the kinematic coverage are $15.30\pm 0.03\pm 0.86$ $\mu$b for prompt $J/\psi$ and $2.34\pm 0.01\pm 0.13$ $\mu$b for $J/\psi$ from $b$-hadron decays, assuming zero polarization of the $J/\psi$ meson. The first uncertainties are statistical and the second systematic. The cross-section reported for $J/\psi$ mesons from $b$-hadron decays is used to extrapolate to a total $b\bar{b}$ cross-section. The ratios of the cross-sections with respect to $\sqrt{s}=8$ TeV are also determined.

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.
