Title: Evidence for simultaneous production of $$J/\psi$$ and $$\Upsilon$$ mesons

Abstract

We report evidence for the simultaneous production of J/ψ and Υ mesons in 8.1 fb -1 of data collected at √s =1.96 TeV by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab pp - Tevatron Collider. Events with these characteristics are expected to be produced predominantly by gluon-gluon interactions. In our analysis, we extract the effective cross section characterizing the initial parton spatial distribution, σ eff = 2.2 ± 0.7 (stat) ± 0.9 (syst) mb.
