Abstract:
We have measured the tt̄ production cross section at √s = 1.96 TeV using data collected by the D∅ experiment at Fermilab. The integrated luminosity of the data set is 140 pb⁻¹ and a total of four candidate events are seen, with an expected background of 2.61 events. The measured cross section of σ(tt̄) = 11.1⁺²²·¹₋₉.₃ (stat.) ⁺⁴·³₋₄.₅ (sys.) pb is in agreement with a NNLO calculation of 6.77 pb.
