Measurement of the tt̄ production cross section in pp̄ collisions at s=1.96 TeV using lepton plus jets events with semileptonic B decays to muons

Abstract:

We present a measurement of the tt̄ production cross section using 194 pb-1 of CDF II data using events with a high transverse momentum electron or muon, three or more jets, and missing transverse energy. The measurement assumes 100% t→Wb branching fraction. Events consistent with tt̄ decay are found by identifying jets containing heavy-flavor semileptonic decays to muons. The dominant backgrounds are evaluated directly from the data. Based on 20 candidate events and an expected background of...
