Measurement of the total and differential inclusive B(+) hadron cross sections in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV

Abstract : The total and differential cross sections for inclusive production of B(+) hadrons are measured as a function of the B(+) transverse momentum pT[B] and rapidity y[B] 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 49.4 inverse-picobarns. The measurement uses the exclusive decay channel B(+) to 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.
