Measurement of the cross section for t(t)over-bar production in p(p)over-bar collisions using the kinematics of lepton plus jets events Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We present a measurement of the top pair production cross section in pp collisions at s=1.96TeV. We collect a data sample with an integrated luminosity of 19411pb-1 with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. We use an artificial neural network technique to discriminate between top pair production and background processes in a sample of 519 lepton+jets events, which have one isolated energetic charged lepton, large missing transverse energy and at least three energetic jets. We measure the top pair production cross section to be tt=6.61.11.5pb, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. 2005 The American Physical Society.
