Title
Measurement of the ZZ cross section in interactions at 183-189 GeV
Author
Abstract
Measurements of on-shell ZZ production are described, using data collected by DELPHI in 1997 and 1998, at centre-of-mass energies roots = 182.6 GeV and 188.6 GeV, respectively. Results obtained in each of the final states q (q) over barq (q) over bar, mu (+)mu (-) q (q) over bar e(+)e(-)q (q) over bar, nu<()over bar>q (q) over bar, l(+)l(-)l(+)l(-), and nu<()over bar>l(+)l(-) are presented. The measured cross-sections for on-shell ZZ production via the tree-level doubly-resonant graphs (NC02) are: sigma (NC02) (182.6 GeV) = 0.38 +/- 0.18 (stat) +/- 0.04 (syst) pb, sigma (NC02) (188.6 GeV) = 0.60+/-0.13 (stat) +/- 0.07 (syst) pb. They are consistent with the Standard Model expectations of 0.25 and 0.65 pb at each energy. (C) 2001 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
