### Measurement of the t-channel single top-quark production cross section in pp collisions at root s=7 TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract:

We report a measurement of the cross section of single top-quark production in the t-channel using 1.04 fb-1 of pp collision data at s=7 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Selected events feature one electron or muon, missing transverse momentum, and two or three jets, exactly one of them identified as originating from a b quark. The cross section is measured by fitting the distribution of a multivariate discriminant constructed with a neural network, yielding σt=83±4(stat.)-19 ...
