Measurement of spin correlations in $t\overline{t}$ production using the matrix element method in the muon+jets final state in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV


CMS Collaboration; Canelli, F; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P; et al (2016). Measurement of spin correlations in $t\overline{t}$ production using the matrix element method in the muon+jets final state in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV. Physics Letters B, 758:321-346.

Abstract

The consistency of the spin correlation strength in top quark pair production with the standard model (SM) prediction is tested in the muon+jets final state. The events are selected from pp collisions, collected by the CMS detector, at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7fb$^{−1}$. The data are compared with the expectation for the spin correlation predicted by the SM and with the expectation of no correlation. Using a template fit method, the fraction of events that show SM spin correlations is measured to be 0.72 ± 0.08 (stat)$^{+0.15} _{−0.13}$(syst), representing the most precise measurement of this quantity in the muon+jets final state to date.

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.
