  • We analyze a sample of W + jet events collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) in ppbar collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.8 TeV to study ttbar production. We employ a simple kinematical variable"H", defined as the scalar sum of the transverse energies of the lepton, neutrino and jets. For events with a W boson and four or more jets, the shape of the"H"distribution deviates by 3.8 standard deviations from that expected from known backgrounds to ttbar production. However this distribution… CONTINUE READING
