### Measurement of the ratio of the p over(p, ̄) → W + c-jet cross section to the inclusive p over(p, ̄) → W + jets cross section

Abstract:

We present a measurement of the fraction of inclusive W + jets events produced with net charm quantum number ±1, denoted W + c-jet, in p over(p, ̄) collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.96 TeV using approximately 1 fb-1 of data collected by the DØ detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. We identify the W + jets events via the leptonic W boson decays. Candidate W + c-jet events are selected by requiring a jet containing a muon in association with a reconstructed W boson and exploiting the charge corre...
