### A study of the $Z$ production cross-section in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 7$ TeV using tau final states

Abstract:

A measurement of the inclusive $Z \to \tau\tau$ cross-section in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 7$ TeV is presented based on a dataset of 1.0 fb$^{-1}$ collected by the LHCb detector. Candidates for $Z \to \tau\tau$ decays are identified through reconstructed final states with two muons, a muon and an electron, a muon and a hadron, or an electron and a hadron. The production cross-section for $Z$ bosons, with invariant mass between 60 and 120 GeV/$c^2$, which decay to $\tau$ leptons with tran...
