Cross section measurements of high-pT dilepton final-state processes using a global fitting method

Abstract:

We present a new method for studying high-pT dilepton events (e±e, μ±μ, e±μ) and simultaneously extracting the production cross sections of pp̄→tt̄, pp̄→W+W-, and pp̄→Z0→τ+τ- at a center-of-mass energy of s=1.96TeV. We perform a likelihood fit to the dilepton data in a parameter space defined by the missing transverse energy and the number of jets in the event. Our results, which use 360pb-1 of data recorded with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider, are σ(tt̄)=8.5-2.2+2.7pb,...
