Title: Measurement of the Pole Mass of the Top Quark using Differential $$t\bar{t}$$ Cross Sections in $$p\bar{p}$$ Collisions at $$\sqrt{s}$$ = 1.96 TeV

Abstract

The differential $$t\bar{t}$$ cross sections, measured as a function of the transverse momentum of the top quark and the invariant mass of the $$t\bar{t}$$ system, are employed to determine the pole mass of the top quark. The data corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 9.7 $$fb^{−1}$$, collected with the D0 detector of the Fermilab Tevatron. Precise calculations at next-to-next-to leading order in perturbative quantum chromodynamics provide the absolute differential cross sections that are employed to extract the pole mass of the top quark.We measure the pole mass of the top quark to be 169.1 ± 2.5 (tot.) GeV.
