Abstract

We present a measurement of the top quark pair production cross section in p over(p, ̄) collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.96   TeV using approximately 1 fb-1 collected with the DØ detector. We consider decay channels containing two high pT charged leptons where one lepton is identified as an electron or a muon while the other lepton can be an electron, a muon or a hadronically decaying τ lepton. For a mass of the top quark of 170 GeV, the measured cross section is 7.5- 1.0+ 1.0 (stat)- 0.6+ 0.7 (syst)- 0.5+ 0.6 (lumi)   pb. Using ℓτ events only, we measure: σt over(t, ̄) × B (t over(t, ̄) → ℓ τ b over(b, ̄)) = 0.13- 0.08+ 0.09 (stat)- 0.06+ 0.06 (syst)- 0.02+ 0.02 (lumi)   pb. Comparing the measured cross section as a function of the mass of the top quark with a partial next-to-next-to leading order Quantum Chromodynamics theoretical prediction, we extract a mass of the top quark of 171.5- 8.8+ 9.9   GeV, in agreement with direct measurements.

N2 - We present a measurement of the top quark pair production cross section in p over(p, ̄) collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.96   TeV using approximately 1 fb-1 collected with the DØ detector. We consider decay channels containing two high pT charged leptons where one lepton is identified as an electron or a muon while the other lepton can be an electron, a muon or a hadronically decaying τ lepton. For a mass of the top quark of 170 GeV, the measured cross section is 7.5- 1.0+ 1.0 (stat)- 0.6+ 0.7 (syst)- 0.5+ 0.6 (lumi)   pb. Using ℓτ events only, we measure: σt over(t, ̄) × B (t over(t, ̄) → ℓ τ b over(b, ̄)) = 0.13- 0.08+ 0.09 (stat)- 0.06+ 0.06 (syst)- 0.02+ 0.02 (lumi)   pb. Comparing the measured cross section as a function of the mass of the top quark with a partial next-to-next-to leading order Quantum Chromodynamics theoretical prediction, we extract a mass of the top quark of 171.5- 8.8+ 9.9   GeV, in agreement with direct measurements.
