Abstract

The measurement of t-channel single top cross-section in proton–proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, using data collected with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment during the year 2010 is presented. Both the electron-neutrino and muon-neutrino decay channels of W boson from top decay are considered. Two complementary multivariate analysis methods to separate signal and background and to extract the cross-section for the single top produced in t-channel are explored. The result is compared with the most precise Standard Model theory predictions.
