We present a leading order QCD analysis of a sample of neutrino induced charged-current events with two muons in the final state originating in the lead-scintillating fibre calorimeter of the CHORUS detector. The results are based on a sample of 8910 neutrino and 430 antineutrino induced opposite-sign dimuon events collected during the exposure of the detector to the CERN Wide Band Neutrino Beam between 1995 and 1998. The analysis yields a value of the charm quark mass of m(c) = (1.26 +/- 0.16 +/- 0.09) GeV/c(2) and a value of the ratio of the strange to non-strange sea in the nucleon Of K = 0.33 +/- 0.05 +/- 0.05, improving the results obtained in similar analyses by previous experiments.


Measurement of quarkonium production cross sections in pp collisions at root s=13 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2018-05-01)
Differential production cross sections of prompt J/psi and psi(2S) charmonium and Upsilon(nS) (n = 1, 2, 3) bottomonium states are measured in proton-proton collisions at root s = 13 TeV, with data collected by the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.3 fb(-1) for the J/psi and 2.7 fb(-1) for the other mesons. The five quarkonium states are reconstructed in the dimuon decay channel, for dimuon rapidity vertical bar y vertical bar < 1.2. The double-differential cross sectio...
Measurement of prompt J/psi pair production in pp collisions at root s = 7 Tev
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-09-01)
Production of prompt J/psi meson pairs in proton-proton collisions at root s = 7 TeV is measured with the CMS experiment at the LHC in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 4.7 fb(-1). The two J/psi mesons are fully reconstructed via their decays into mu(+)mu(-) pairs. This observation provides for the first time access to the high-transverse-momentum region of J/psi pair production where model predictions are not yet established. The total and differential cross sections are meas...
Strong coupling constant of negative parity octet baryons with light pseudoscalar mesons in light cone QCD sum rules
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; Savcı, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 2017-01-01)
The strong coupling constants of the pi and K mesons with negative parity octet baryons are estimated within the light cone QCD sum rules. It is observed that all strong coupling constants, similarly to the case for the positive parity baryons, can be described in terms of three invariant functions, where two of them correspond to the well known F and D couplings in the SU (3)(f) symmetry, and the third function describes the SU(3)(f) symmetry violating effects. We compare our predictions on the strong coup...
Delta pi N coupling constant in light come QCD sum rules
Gokalp, A; Yılmaz, Osman (IOP Publishing, 1999-12-01)
We employ the light cone QCD sum rules to calculate Delta pi N coupling constant by studying the two-point correlation function between the vacuum and the pion state. Our result is consistent with the traditional QCD sum rules calculations and it is in agreement with the experimental value.
Measurement of the Z boson differential cross section in transverse momentum and rapidity in proton-proton collisions at 8 TeV
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2015-10-01)
We present a measurement of the Z boson differential cross section in rapidity and transverse momentum using a data sample of pp collision events at a centre-of-mass energy root s = 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb(-1). The Z boson is identified via its decay to a pair of muons. The measurement provides a precision test of quantum chromodynamics over a large region of phase space. In addition, due to the small experimental uncertainties in the measurement the data has the potentia...
