Measurement of the tt¯ production cross section in the dilepton channel in pp collisions at s√ = 8 TeV


CMS Collaboration; Chatrchyan, S; Khachatryan, V; Sirunyan, A M; et al; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P (2014). Measurement of the tt¯ production cross section in the dilepton channel in pp collisions at s√ = 8 TeV. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2014(24):online.

Abstract

The top-antitop quark ( tt¯ ) production cross section is measured in proton-proton collisions at s√ = 8 TeV with the CMS experiment at the LHC, using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.3 fb−1. The measurement is performed by analysing events with a pair of electrons or muons, or one electron and one muon, and at least two jets, one of which is identified as originating from hadronisation of a bottom quark. The measured cross section is 239 ± 2 (stat.) ± 11 (syst.) ± 6 (lum.) pb, for an assumed top-quark mass of 172.5 GeV, in agreement with the prediction of the standard model.
