### Measurement of the cross section for the production of a W boson in association with b-jets in pp collisions at √s=7TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract:

A measurement is presented of the cross section for the production of a W boson with one or two jets, of which at least one must be a b-jet, in pp collisions at s=7TeV. Production via top decay is not included in the signal definition. The measurement is based on 35pb-1 of data collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The W+b-jet cross section is defined for jets reconstructed with the anti-kt clustering algorithm with transverse momentum above 25 GeV and rapidity within ±2.1. The b-jets...
