Prompt KS 0 production in pp collisions at s=0.9 TeV

Abstract:
The production of KS0 mesons in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 0.9 TeV is studied with the LHCb detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The luminosity of the analysed sample is determined using a novel technique, involving measurements of the beam currents, sizes and positions, and is found to be 6.8±1.0 μb-1. The differential prompt KS0 production cross-section is measured as a function of the KS0 transverse momentum and rapidity in the region 0
