Measurement of the top quark pair production cross section in pp collisions at √s=7TeV in dilepton final states with ATLAS


A measurement of the production cross section of top quark pairs (tt̄) in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider is reported. Candidate events are selected in the dilepton topology with large missing transverse energy and at least two jets. Using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35pb-1, a tt̄ production cross section σtt̄=177±20(stat.)±14(syst.)±7(lum.)pb is measured for an assumed to...
