Abstract (data abstract)
CERN-LHC. The differential cross sections for inclusive production of B+ hadrons are measured as a function of the B+ transverse momentum and rapidity in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, using data collected by the CMS experiment that correspond to an integrated luminosity of 48.1 pb^−1. The measurement uses the exclusive decay channel B+ -> J/psi K+, with J/psi mesons that decay to a pair of muons. The results show a reasonable agreement with theoretical calculations within the uncertainties. See Phys. Lett. B 771 (2017) 435 for more details.
