Measurements of prompt charm production cross-sections in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 13\,\mathrm{TeV}$

Abstract : Production cross-sections of prompt charm mesons are measured with the first data from $pp$ collisions at the LHC at a centre-of-mass energy of $13\,\mathrm{TeV}$. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of $4.98 \pm 0.19\,\mathrm{pb}^{-1}$ collected by the LHCb experiment. The production cross-sections of $D^{0}$, $D^{+}$, $D_{s}^{+}$, and $D^{*+}$ mesons are measured in bins of charm meson transverse momentum, $p_{\mathrm{T}}$, and rapidity, $y$, and cover the range $0 < p_{\mathrm{T}} < 15\,\mathrm{GeV}/c$ and $2.0 < y < 4.5$. The ratios of the integrated cross-sections between charm mesons agree with previously measured fragmentation fractions. The inclusive $c\overline{c}$ cross-section within the range of $0 < p_{\mathrm{T}} < 8\,\mathrm{GeV}/c$ is found to be \[ \sigma(pp \to c\overline{c}X) = 2940 \pm 3 \pm 180 \pm 160\,\mu\mathrm{b} \] where the uncertainties are due to statistical, systematic and fragmentation fraction uncertainties, respectively.
