Study of the Inclusive Beauty Production

  • Lea Caminada
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The prospects for a measurement of the inclusive b-quark production cross-section with the very early data at CMS are presented in this chapter. Due to the large b-quark production cross-section, high statistics data samples are expected soon after the LHC start-up. Measurements of the b-quark production have already been done at the Tevatron, HERA and other colliders. A lot of progress has been made in understanding the b-quark production process and the measurements are in reasonable agreement with NLO/NLL QCD predictions in most regions of the phase space.
