LHC Seminar

Latest results on Z boson production from LHCb

by Jonathan Anderson (Universitaet Zuerich (CH))

Tuesday, 8 October 2013 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 503-1-001 - Council Chamber )
Description
Recent measurements of Z boson production using data collected at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV by the LHCb experiment are presented. 
These measurements test QCD and electroweak theory and can provide constraints on the proton parton distribution functions. 
Inclusive and differential cross-section measurements for Z bosons, decaying into di-muon, di-electron, and di-tau final states, and a measurement of the production of jets of particles in association with a Z boson are presented. 
The results are found to be in agreement with theoretical predictions with recently calculated parton distribution functions.
