Measurement of the charged-current Drell-Yan differential cross-section at high transverse masses at √s=13 TeV with the ATLAS detector — Frank Ellinghaus, •Frederic Schröder, and Christian Zeitnitz — Bergische Universität Wuppertal
The charged-current Drell-Yan (DY) cross-section is measured for the leptonic decay of the W boson W→ l ν with l=e,µ. While the cross-section at the peak of the W boson mass is known very well, the measurement of the differential cross-section for transverse masses up to O(1 TeV) is measured for the first time. In addition, the cross-section will be measured differentially in the pseudorapidity of the lepton.
The charged-current DY can be used to constrain the density function that describes the partonic content of the proton and to measure fundamental parameters of the Standard Model. In particular, the high mTW region of the charged-current DY allows probing new physics by constraining effective field theory parameters, because these parameters are sensitive to small deviations in the cross-section with respect to the theory prediction.
Studies for the fake lepton background estimation based on the matrix method as well as an overview of the unfolding procedure will be presented for the electron channel. The data has been taken at the ATLAS experiment based on pp-collisions at a center-of-mass energy of √s=13 TeV at the LHC.
