Top Quark Mass Measurement with the Matrix Element Method in the Lepton + Jets Final State at DØ Run II

    Abstract

    We present a measurement of the top quark mass with the matrix element method in the lep-ton+jets final state. As the jet energy scale represents the dominant source of systematic uncertainty, the matrix element likelihood is extended by an additional " JES " parameter, which is defined as a global scale factor relative to the Monte Carlo reference scale… (More)
