Mesure de la masse du quark top à partir d'événements ttbar présentant un J/psi dans l'état final avec l'expérience CMS du LHC

Abstract : The top quark mass is a fundamental parameter of the Standard Model of Particle Physics. One of the challenges in the LHC physics case, where the top quark is produced in abundance, is the precise determination of this parameter. Currently, it is measured through the direct reconstruction of all the top quark decay products. The systematic uncertainty on the jet energy calibration and b tagging sensibly limits the precision on this measurement and it is thus vital to develop alternative measurements. A very promising possibility – never exploited until now – is the study of top pair decays, where one of the two quarks decays in the leptonic channel with a J/psi created in the b quark fragmentation. The top quark mass is extracted through its correlation to the invariant mass of the J/psi-charged lepton combination. This method presents the advantages of using charged leptons only, whose energy momentum is measured with great accuracy in the CMS detector
