Measurement of the \(ZZ\) and \(WZ\) Production Cross Sections

Chapter
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)

Abstract

In order to eliminate subjective bias in our analysis method, we performed a blind analysis. Selection requirements and analysis techniques were optimised based on MC expectation in the signal regions.

Keywords

Systematic Uncertainty Signal Cross Section Central Track Dilepton Invariant Mass Trigger Efficiency 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
