Measurement of the cross-section for Z → e+e- production in pp collisions at s√=7 TeV


LHCb Collaboration; et al; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Vollhardt, A; Straumann, U (2013). Measurement of the cross-section for Z → e+e- production in pp collisions at s√=7 TeV. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2013:106.

Abstract

A measurement of the cross-section for pp → Z → e+e− is presented using data at s√=7 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 0.94 fb−1. The process is measured within the kinematic acceptance p T > 20 GeV/c and 2 < η < 4.5 for the daughter electrons and dielectron invariant mass in the range 60–120 GeV/c 2. The cross-section is determined to be σ(pp→Z→e+e−)=76.0±0.8±2.0±2.6pb where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic and the third is the uncertainty in the luminosity. The measurement is performed as a function of Z rapidity and as a function of an angular variable which is closely related to the Z transverse momentum. The results are compared with previous LHCb measurements and with theoretical predictions from QCD.
