Abstract (data abstract)
CERN-LHC. Measurement of the inclusive leptonic production cross sections for W+- and Z0/GAMMA* from proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. The data set has a total integrated luminosity of 35 pb-1 collected in 2010. The cross sections are given as a function of (pseudo)rapidity for (W+-)Z0 production and evaluated over a fiducial kinematic range and extrapolated to full phase space. Total cross sections are derived using the combined muon and electron decay modes assuming lepton universality. The correlations in systematic uncertainties are given for the 30 sources of systematic error defined in the text. Note added (24 JUN 2014): The cross section values reported in Tables 1, 3, 5, 8-15 below should be multiplied by a factor of 1.0187 to take into account the updated value of the integrated luminosity for the ATLAS 2010 data taking period. The uncertainty on the global normalisation ("Lumi") increases slightly from 3.4% to 3.5%. See Eur.Phys.J. C73 (2013) 2518 for more details.
