Abstract: Jet multiplicity distributions in top quark pair ($ \mathrm{ t \bar{t} } $) events are measured in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC using a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb$^{-1}$. The measurement is performed in the dilepton decay channels ($\mathrm{ e^+ e^- }$, $\mu^+ \mu^-$, and $\mathrm{ e^\pm } \mu^\mp$). The absolute and normalized differential cross sections for $ \mathrm{ t \bar{t} } $ production are measured as a function of the jet multiplicity in the event for different jet transverse momentum thresholds and the kinematic properties of the leading additional jets. The differential $ \mathrm{ t \bar{t} b} $ and $ \mathrm{ t \bar{t} b \bar{b} } $ cross sections are presented for the first time as a function of the kinematic properties of the leading additional b jets. Furthermore, the fraction of events without additional jets above a threshold is measured as a function of the transverse momenta of the leading additional jets and the scalar sum of the transverse momenta of all additional jets. The data are compared and found to be consistent with predictions from several perturbative quantum chromodynamics event generators and a next-to-leading order calculation. | ||

Figure 1-a:
Reconstructed jet multiplicity distribution after event selection in data (points) and from signal and background simulation (histograms) for all jets with ${p_{\mathrm {T}}}$ of at least 30 GeV (a), 60 GeV (b), and 100 GeV (c). The hatched regions correspond to the uncertainties affecting the shape of the distributions in the simulated signal ${\mathrm{ t } \mathrm{ \bar{t} } }$ events and backgrounds (cf. Section 6). The lower plots show the ratio of the data to the MC simulation prediction. Note that in all cases the event selection requires at least two jets with $ {p_{\mathrm {T}}} >$ 30 GeV. |

Summary |
Measurements of the absolute and normalized differential top quark pair production cross sections have been presented using pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb$^{-1}$, in the dilepton decay channel as a function of the number of jets in the event, for three different jet $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ thresholds, and as a function of the kinematic variables of the leading and subleading additional jets. The results have been compared to the predictions from MadGraph interfaced with PYTHIA6, POWHEG interfaced with both PYTHIA6 and HERWIG6, MC interfaced with HERWIG6, and MadGraph samples with varied renormalization, factorization, and jet-parton matching scales. In general, all these generators are found to give a reasonable description of the data. The MadGraph and POWHEG generators interfaced with PYTHIA6 describe the data well for all measured jet multiplicities; while MC interfaced with HERWIG6 generates lower multiplicities than observed for the lower-$p_{\mathrm{T}}$ thresholds. The prediction from MadGraph with varied renormalization and factorization scales does not provide an improved description of the data compared to the nominal simulation. These results are also compared to the predictions from POWHEG with the hdamp parameter set to the top quark mass interfaced with PYTHIA6, PYTHIA8, and HERWIG6, which provide a reasonable description of the data within the uncertainties, and the predictions from MadGraph and MG5-aMC@NLO interfaced with PYTHIA8, which generate higher jet multiplicities for all the $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ thresholds. The measured kinematic variables of the leading and subleading additional jets are consistent with the various predictions. The simulations also describe well the data distributions of the leading additional jet $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ and $H_{\mathrm{T}}$, although they tend to predict higher $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ values and more central values in $\eta$. MadGraph with varied parameters yields similar predictions, except for varying the renormalization and factorization scales, which tends to give higher $H_{\mathrm{T}}$ values. The MC generator predicts lower yields than observed for the subleading additional jet $p_{\mathrm{T}}$. The uncertainties in the measured $\mathrm{ t }\mathrm{ \bar{t} } \mathrm{ b }\mathrm{ \bar{ b} }$ ($\mathrm{ t }\mathrm{ \bar{t} }\mathrm{ b }$) absolute and normalized differential cross sections as a function of the b jet kinematic variables are dominated by the statistical uncertainties. In general, the predictions describe well the shape of the measured cross sections as a function of the variables studied, except for $\Delta R_{\mathrm{ b }\mathrm{ b }}$, where they favour smaller values than the measurement. The predictions underestimate the total $\mathrm{ t }\mathrm{ \bar{t} }\mathrm{ b } \mathrm{ \bar{b} }$ cross section by approximately a factor of 2, in agreement with previous measurements [11]. The calculation by PowHel [19] describes well the shape of the distributions, while the predicted absolute cross section is about 30% lower, but compatible with the measurements within the uncertainties. The gap fraction has been measured as a function of the $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ of the leading and subleading additional jets and $H_{\mathrm{T}}$ of the additional jets in different $\eta$ ranges. For a given threshold value, the gap fraction as a function of $H_{\mathrm{T}}$ is lower than the gap fraction as a function of the $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ of the leading additional jet, showing that the measurement is probing multiple quark and gluon emission. Within the uncertainties, all predictions describe the gap fraction well as a function of the momentum of the first additional jet, while MC interfaced with HERWIG fails to describe the gap fraction as a function of the subleading additional jet $p_{\mathrm{T}}$ and $H_{\mathrm{T}}$. In general, MadGraph with decreased renormalization and factorization scales more poorly describes the observed gap fraction, while varying the jet-parton matching threshold provides a similar description of the data. The MadGraph and MG5\_aMC@NLO generators interfaced with PYTHIA8 predict lower values than measured. The POWHEG simulation with HDAMP $= m_{\mathrm{ t }}$ interfaced with PYTHIA8 is consistent with the data, while the simulation interfaced with HERWIG6 and PYTHIA6 tends to worsen the comparison with the measurement. In general, the different measurements presented are in agreement with the SM predictions as formulated by the various event generators, within their uncertainties. The correct description of $\mathrm{ t \bar{t} }$+jets production is important since it constitutes a major background in searches for new particles in several supersymmetric models and in ${\mathrm{ t }\mathrm{ \bar{t} }\mathrm{ H }}$ processes, where the Higgs boson decays into $\mathrm{ b \bar{b} }$. The $\mathrm{ t }\mathrm{ \bar{t} }\mathrm{ b } \mathrm{ \bar{b} }$ ($\mathrm{ t }\mathrm{ \bar{t} }\mathrm{ b }$) differential cross sections, measured here for the first time, also provide important information about the main irreducible background in the search for ${\mathrm{ t }\mathrm{ \bar{t} }\mathrm{ H }\,(\mathrm{ b }\mathrm{ \bar{b} })} $. |
