Measurement of the mass of the top quark in decays with a $J/\psi$ meson in pp collisions at 8 TeV


CMS Collaboration; Canelli, F; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P; et al (2016). Measurement of the mass of the top quark in decays with a $J/\psi$ meson in pp collisions at 8 TeV. Journal of High Energy Physics, 1612:123.

Abstract

A first measurement of the top quark mass in the decay channel t → (W → ℓν) (b → J/ψ + X → μ$^{+}$ μ$^{−}$ + X) is presented. The analysis uses events selected from the proton-proton collisions recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb$^{−1}$, with 666 $ \mathrm{t}\overline{\mathrm{t}} $ and single top quark candidate events containing a reconstructed J/ψ candidate decaying into an oppositely-charged muon pair. The mass of the (J/ψ + ℓ) system, where ℓ is an electron or a muon from W boson decay, is used to extract a top quark mass of 173.5 ± 3.0 (stat) ± 0.9 (syst) GeV.
