Measurement of the tt̄ production cross section in pp̄ collisions at √s=1.96TeV using soft electron b-tagging

Abstract:

We present a measurement of the top-quark pair-production cross section in pp̄ collisions at √s=1.96TeV using a data sample corresponding to 1.7fb-1 of integrated luminosity collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab. We reconstruct tt̄ events in the lepton+jets channel, consisting of eν+jets and μν+jets final states. The dominant background is the production of W bosons in association with multiple jets. To suppress this background, we identify electrons from the semileptonic decay of ...
