Title: Measurement of the differential γ + 2 b -jet cross section and the ratio σ ( γ + 2 b -jets ) / σ ( γ + b -jet ) in p p ¯ collisions at s = 1.96   TeV

We present the first measurements of the differential cross section dσ/dp γ Τ for the production of an isolated photon in association with at least two b-quark jets. The measurements consider photons with rapidities |y γ | < 1.0 and transverse momenta 30 < p γ Τ < 200 GeV. The b-quark jets are required to have p jet Τ > 15 GeVand |γ jet| < 1.5. The ratio of differential production cross sections for γ + 2 b-jets to γ +b-jet as a function of p γ Τ is also presented. The results are based on the proton–antiproton collision data at √s = 1.96 TeV collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. As a result, the measured cross sections and their ratios are compared to the next-to-leading order perturbative QCD calculations as well as predictions based on the k Τ-factorization approach and those from the sherpa and pythia Monte Carlo event generators.
