Abstract (data abstract)
CERN-LHC. Measurement of the production cross section for a W boson and two b jets in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. The W + b b-bar events are selected in the W to mu nu decay mode by requiring a muon with transverse momentum pt > 25 GeV and pseudorapidity abs(eta) < 2.1, and exactly two b-tagged jets with pt > 25 GeV and abs(eta) < 2.4. The total luminosity of the data sample analyzed is 5 inverse femtobarns. The results are consistent with the standard model prediction.
