Description

We present a measurement of the top quark pair production cross section using CMS data collected in 2011 at a center-of-mass energy of 7TeV. The cross section measurement is performed in the semi-leptonic final state with events containing one lepton, either a muon or an electron, missing transverse energy and jets. The measured cross section is compared with higher order QCD calculations.
