|Title:||Precision measurement of the Z boson invisible width in pp collisions root s=13 TeV||Authors:||Tumasyan, A.

|Issue Date:||2023||Publisher:||Elsevier||Abstract:||A precise measurement of the invisible width of the Z boson produced in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV is presented using data recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36.3 fb-1. The result is obtained from a simultaneous fit to kinematic distributions for two data samples of Z boson plus jets: one dominated by Z boson decays to invisible particles and the other by Z boson decays to muon and electron pairs. The invisible width is measured to be 523 & PLUSMN; 3 (stat) & PLUSMN; 16 (syst) MeV. This result is the first precise measurement of the invisible width of the Z boson at a hadron collider, and is the single most precise direct measurement to date, competitive with the combined result of the direct measurements from the LEP experiments. & COPY; 2022 The Author(s).
