Phenomenological implications of the intrinsic charm in the Z boson production at the LHC

Bailas, G. and Gonçalves, V. P. LU (2016) In European Physical Journal C. Particles and Fields 76(3). p.1-7
Abstract

In this paper we study the Z, (Formula presented.) jet, (Formula presented.) , and (Formula presented.) jet production in pp collisions at the LHC considering different models for the intrinsic charm content of the proton. We analyze the impact of the intrinsic charm in the rapidity and transverse momentum distributions for these different processes. Our results indicated that differently from the other processes, the (Formula presented.) cross section is strongly affected by the presence of the intrinsic charm. Moreover, we propose the analysis of the ratios (Formula presented.) and (Formula presented.) and we demonstrate that these observables can be used as a probe of the intrinsic charm.
