Z production cross section at LHC

In summary, there are several resources available to obtain the expected cross section for Z at the LHC (pp at 14 TeV). These include a diagram on page 27 of the LP2005 symposium presentation, a presentation on page 29, and a paper on arXiv.

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:
http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph?9907231
might be of use.
It appears to give the cross section times the leptonic branching ratio for a numerical simulation.
It might help.
 

What is the Z production cross section at LHC?

The Z production cross section at LHC is a measurement of the rate at which Z bosons are produced in collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It is an important quantity in particle physics as it helps to validate the Standard Model of particle physics and search for new physics beyond the Standard Model.

Why is the Z production cross section at LHC important?

The Z production cross section at LHC is important because it provides a way to test the predictions of the Standard Model and search for new physics. Any deviations from the expected value could indicate the presence of new particles or interactions that are not accounted for in the Standard Model.

How is the Z production cross section at LHC measured?

The Z production cross section at LHC is measured by analyzing the data from proton-proton collisions at the LHC. Scientists use specialized detectors to identify the particles produced in the collisions and measure their energies and momenta. From this information, the number of Z bosons produced can be determined and compared to the predicted value.

What is the significance of the Z boson in particle physics?

The Z boson is a fundamental particle in the Standard Model that mediates the weak nuclear force. Its discovery in the 1980s helped to confirm the existence of the weak force and provide evidence for the unification of the electromagnetic and weak forces. Studying the properties and production of the Z boson can lead to a better understanding of the fundamental forces and particles of the universe.

What are the potential implications of a deviation in the Z production cross section at LHC?

If the measured Z production cross section at LHC differs significantly from the predicted value, it could indicate the presence of new particles or interactions that are not accounted for in the Standard Model. This could lead to the discovery of new physics and help to expand our understanding of the fundamental building blocks of the universe.
