Measurement of the W+W− cross section in pp collisions at s√=7 TeV and limits on anomalous WWγ and WWZ couplings - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


CMS Collaboration; Chatrchyan, S; Khachatryan, V; Sirunyan, A M; et al; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P (2013). Measurement of the W+W− cross section in pp collisions at s√=7 TeV and limits on anomalous WWγ and WWZ couplings. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 73:2610.

Abstract

A measurement of W+W− production in pp collisions at s√=7 TeV is presented. The data were collected with the CMS detector at the LHC, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 4.92±0.11 fb−1. The W+W− candidates consist of two oppositely charged leptons, electrons or muons, accompanied by large missing transverse energy. The W+W− production cross section is measured to be 52.4±2.0 (stat.)±4.5 (syst.)±1.2 (lum.) pb. This measurement is consistent with the standard model prediction of 47.0±2.0 pb at next-to-leading order. Stringent limits on the WWγ and WWZ anomalous triple gauge-boson couplings are set.

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.
