Measurement of the cross-section for Z→μμ production with 1 fb−1 of pp collisions at s√=7 TeV

Documentation is available here.

More detailed information: ANA note 2013-025

Abstract

A measurement of the cross-section for Z→μμ is presented using LHCb data recorded in 2011. The cross-section is measured for muons with a transverse momentum larger than 20 GeV/c in the pseudorapidity range 2.0 < η <4.5. The invariant mass of the dimuon system is restricted to 60 < M < 120 GeV/c2. The cross-section is also measured differentially as a function of the rapidity, transverse momentum and ϕ∗ of the Z boson.

A comparison of the total Z → μμ cross-section measured in this analysis with the Z → ee and Z → ττ cross-sections measured at LHCb. The fixed order NNLO prediction from Fewz using the MSTW08 PDF set is also shown. Fig2.png
Differential cross-section for Z → μμ as a function of y of the Z boson. The dark shaded (orange) bands correspond to the statistical uncertainties, the light hatched (yellow) band to the statistical and systematic uncertainties added in quadrature. Superimposed are the fixed order NNLO predictions from Fewz using the MSTW08, CT10 and NNPDF23 PDF sets. Fig3a.png
