abstract

  • A measurement of the tt̄ production cross section in pp̄ collisions at √s=1.96TeV using events with two leptons, missing transverse energy, and jets is reported. The data were collected with the CDF II detector. The result in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity 2.8fb-1 is σtt̄=6.27±0.73(stat) ±0.63(syst)±0.39(lum)pb. for an assumed top mass of 175GeV/c2. © 2010 The American Physical Society.
