Measurement of the top quark pair production cross section in p¯p collisions

Published

Journal Article

We present a measurement of the t¯t production cross section in p¯p collisions at √s=1.8TeV by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron. The measurement is based on data from an integrated luminosity of approximately 125pb−1 accumulated during the 1992–1996 collider run. We observe 39 t¯t candidate events in the dilepton and lepton+jets decay channels with an expected background of 13.7 ± 2.2 events. For a top quark mass of 173.3 GeV/c2, we measure the t¯t production cross section to be 5.5 ± 1.8 pb. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
