Measurement of forward top pair production in the dilepton channel in pp collisions at $\sqrt s$ = 13 TeV


LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Serra, N; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2018). Measurement of forward top pair production in the dilepton channel in pp collisions at $\sqrt s$ = 13 TeV. Journal of High Energy Physics, 08:174.

Abstract

Forward top quark pair production is studied in pp collisions in the μeb final state using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.93 fb−1 collected with the LHCb experiment at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The cross-section is measured in a fiducial region where both leptons have a transverse momentum greater than 20 GeV and a pseudorapidity between 2.0 and 4.5. The quadrature sum of the azimuthal separation and the difference in pseudorapidities, denoted ΔR, between the two leptons must be larger than 0.1. The b-jet axis is required to be separated from both leptons by a ΔR of 0.5, and to have a transverse momentum in excess of 20 GeV and a pseudorapidity between 2.2 and 4.2. The cross-section is measured to be
σtt¯=126±19(stat)±16(syst)±5(lumi)fb
where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is due to the luminosity determination. The measurement is compatible with the Standard Model prediction.
