Abstract: Measurements of differential $ \mathrm{t\bar{t}} $ production cross sections are presented in the single-lepton decay channel, as a function of a number of kinematic event variables. The measurements are performed with proton-proton collision data at $ \sqrt{s}= $ 13 TeV , collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC during 2016, with an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$. The data are compared to a variety of state-of-the-art leading-order and next-to-leading-order $ \mathrm{t\bar{t}} $ simulations. | ||

Summary |
Normalized and absolute differential $ \mathrm{t\bar{t}} $ production cross sections with respect to several kinematic event variables are measured at the particle level in a visible phase space region. The results are based on proton-proton collision data at $ \sqrt{s}= $ 13 TeV , collected by the CMS experiment with an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$. The total cross section is observed to be consistent with previous results and next-to-next-to-leading-order calculations, and the differential measurements are compared to several $ \mathrm{t\bar{t}} $ production models: POWHEG+PYTHIA , POWHEG+HERWIG++ , mg5_amc@nlo-lo , and mg5_amc@nlo-nlo. The POWHEG+PYTHIA simulation is found to be generally consistent with the data, with residual differences covered by theoretical uncertainties. The jet multiplicity distribution is particularly well-modeled, having been tuned on LHC 8 TeV data. The POWHEG+HERWIG++ and mg5_amc@nlo-nlo models are shown to be consistent with data for most kinematic event variables, while the mg5_amc@nlo-lo model does not provide an accurate description of any variable measured in the data. It is expected that the results presented here will be useful for tuning $ \mathrm{t\bar{t}} $ generators and models in the future. To facilitate this, the measurements presented here have been implemented in the RIVET framework and will be available to the wider community. |
