If a non-trivial azimuthal dependence is considered, integrated cross sections may be significantly enhanced by a factor of two or more.

The reconstructed invariant mass agrees with the PDG value within statistical uncertainties, and the peak width is compatible with Monte Carlo expectations. The kinematic properties of the J/ψ candidates are presented and compared with Monte Carlo data. The muon trigger and reconstruction efficiencies in this very low transverse momentum region are studied using the J/ψ candidates.','cdsLink':'https://cds.cern.ch/record/1277685','journal':'Preliminary','journalSub':'07-JUN-10','ecm':'7','luminosity':'6.4 nb-1','keywords':'7 TeV,Spectroscopy,Quarkonium,Muon pairs,2 leptons','links':'@linkBegin@https://atlas.web.cern.ch/Atlas/GROUPS/PHYSICS/CONFNOTES/ATLAS-CONF-2010-045/@linkEnd@Documents@descriptionEnd@
