Measurement of differential cross-sections of a single top quark produced in association with a W boson at √s=13TeV with ATLAS

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The differential cross-section for the production of a W boson in association with a top quark is measured for several particle-level observables. The measurements are performed using 36.1fb-1 of pp collision data collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC in 2015 and 2016. Differential cross-sections are measured in a fiducial phase space defined by the presence of two charged leptons and exactly one jet matched to a b-hadron, and are normalised with the fiducial cross-section. Results are found to be in good agreement with predictions from several Monte Carlo event generators. © 2018, CERN for the benefit of the ATLAS collaboration.
