  • This Letter reports on a first measurement of the inclusive W+jets cross section in proton-proton collisions at a centre-ofmass energy of 7 TeV at the LHC, with the ATLAS detector. Cross sections, in both the electron and muon decay modes of the W boson, are presented as a function of jet multiplicity and of the transverse momentum of the leading and nextto-leading jets in the event. Measurements are also presented of the ratio of cross sections σ(W+ ≥ n)/σ(W+ ≥ n− 1) for inclusive jet… CONTINUE READING
