### Measurement of the tt̄ Production Cross Section in pp̄ Collisions at s=1.96TeV Using Missing ET+jets Events with Secondary Vertex b Tagging

Abstract:

We present a measurement of the tt̄ production cross section in pp̄ collisions at s=1.96TeV which uses events with an inclusive signature of significant missing transverse energy and jets. This is the first measurement which makes no explicit lepton identification requirements, so that sensitivity to W→τν decays is maintained. Heavy flavor jets from top quark decay are identified with a secondary vertex tagging algorithm. From 311pb-1 of data collected by the Collider Detector at Fermilab, we...
