An accurate determination of the top quark pair production cross-section at the LHC will provide an important check of the Standard Model (SM). Given the high statistics available, corresponding to about one top quark pair per second at a luminosity of 1033 cm-2 s-1, the cross-section measurement can be performed relatively fast after the turn-on of the LHC. Prospects for this measurement with the ATLAS and CMS detectors during the initial period of LHC are presented here. PACS 14.65.Ha-Top quarks

Abstract

An accurate determination of the top quark pair production cross-section at the LHC will provide an important check of the Standard Model (SM). Given the high statistics available, corresponding to about one top quark pair per second at a luminosity of 1033 cm-2 s-1, the cross-section measurement can be performed relatively fast after the turn-on of the LHC. Prospects for this measurement with the ATLAS and CMS detectors during the initial period of LHC are presented here. PACS 14.65.Ha-Top quarks
