    Does anybody know where to get the expected cross section for Z at the LHC (pp at 14 TeV)? (it would be great if you could provide a reference).

    There's a diagram on page 27:

    Which is also used here at page 29:

    This is all from last weeks lepton-photon 2005 symposium.

    Hope this helps.

    This paper:
    might be of use.
    It appears to give the cross section times the leptonic branching ratio for a numerical simulation.
    It might help.
