abstract

  • We present a measurement of the inclusive jet cross section in pp̄ interactions at s=1.96TeV using 385pb-1 of data collected with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The results are obtained using an improved cone-based jet algorithm (Midpoint). The data cover the jet transverse momentum range from 61 to 620GeV/c, extending the reach by almost 150GeV/c compared with previous measurements at the Tevatron. The results are in good agreement with next-to-leading order perturbative QCD predictions using the CTEQ6.1M parton distribution functions. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
