LHCb spectrometer

- Two approaches have been investigated to perform luminosity measurements at LHCb by measuring:
- vertices of beam-gas interaction through the VELO detector (*)
- event rates of physical channels with a well known and sizeable cross section

Luminosity measurements at LHCb

Motivations:

Relative Luminosity:

- Correct for systematic effects
Reconstruction and trigger efficiencies

- Control the stability of the hardware
- Stability of colliding beam conditions

Absolute luminosity:

- Measure (and publish) cross section:
- bb inclusive production

- prompt charm

- weak boson production

- constrain Parton Distribution Functions from

EW processes

- Measure absolute BR of Bs

Pythia settings

- The diagrams for the boson V (Z0 and W) production are:

- PDF CTEQ4Lis used
- The initial state radiation are switched off
- Only Z0 neutral current
interference in matrix elements of Z0/* and * are disabled

- A polar angle 400 mrad is required to the leptons decaying from bosons

The annual signal yield will be, assuming Lint =2 fb-1

(1 y =107s & <L > = 2x 1032 cm-2 s-1):

Sz = Lintx 2 tot x (Z x B.R.) 2

where:

2 tot= (genx recx selx trig) 2

(Z x B.R.) 2 2 nb

S1 = Lintx 1tot x ( x BR) 1

where:

1tot= (genx recx selx trig) 1

( x BR) 1tot= (Z x BR) +(W x BR) 22 nb

The performances of these two physical processes can be compared

Monte Carlo Samples

Single muon coming from W and Z0 decay (single-muon luminometer)

50 kevents of W± ±

5 kevents of Z0 (with a not reconstructed)

Z0 +- decay process

(dimuon luminometer)

25 kevents of Z0

Performance of the dimuon luminometer

Acceptance: 4 vs 400 mrad

Future work

For the next, I will assume the W and Z decays have

the same geometrical acceptance efficiency

In order to evaluate the generation efficiency (gen) in [0, 400] mrad a small pre-production of 4 kevents of Z0 +- have been generated in 4

1 vs 2

All the production cross section have been evaluated at NNLO (*)

Dimuon selection algorithm

The strategy of the selection algorithm is a compromise between

a high efficiency on the signal and a large rejection of the background sources

- The signal is represented by a couple of muons (lnL> -8) with:
- opposite charge
- low significance (IP/IP) < 5
- high pT > 10 GeV/c

Background processes

60

These cuts together with the large di-muon invariant mass are able to totally rejects~15x106 of minimum bias and ~8x106 of b inclusive events.

The first two physical channels (Z0 +- & ttW+ W-) are not yet generated: Z0 +- decay could be rejected requiring an IP cut due to c(tau) ~ 100 m, while the ttW+ W- contribution to the signal is at most ~4‰ considering their cross section x B.R.

The first three physical channels (W,Z0 +-, ttW+ W-) are not yet generated:

W and Z0 +- decays could be rejected requiring an IP cut due to c(tau) ~ 100 m, while the ttW+ W- contribution to the signal is at most ~ 4‰ considering their cross section x B.R.

The minimum bias events are not taking into account because ~99% events are rejected with the previous “smooth” selection cuts

A new L1 specific algorithm, based on a IP < 0.15 mm and a pT > 10 GeV, is introduced in the L1Decision package (v4r5)

L1 Trigger algorithms

L1 Trigger algorithms & results

- The addition of the new L1 specific algorithm, called low IP muon
- reaches a L1 efficiency on the Z0 signal up to ~ 85% comparable tothat obtained with other dimuon processes such as theB0s→J/(µµ)
- requires a limited bandwidth in order to not upset the L1 streaming. The bandwidth can be computed looking at the muons coming from the bb inclusive events which pass L0&L1 trigger (without any selection cuts)
- a negligible value of ~ 50 Hzis obtained

Parton Distribution Function

- New PDF sets have been recently updated considering the more recent data from H1 and ZEUS at HERA and CDF and D0 at Tevatron:
- Alekhin(*)
- CTEQ6(**)
- MRST2004(***)
- ZEUS2005

All these PDFs estimate an uncertainty on the Z and W boson production cross sections of 2÷3 %
