    • Abstract


      Drell–Yan process at LHC, $q\bar{q} \to Z/ \gamma^{\ast} \to \ell^+ \ell^-$, is one of the benchmarks for confirmation of Standard Model at TeV energy scale. Since the theoretical prediction for the rate is precise and the final state is clean as well as relatively easy to measure, the process can be studied at the LHC even at relatively low luminosity. Importantly, the Drell–Yan process is an irreducible background to several searches of beyond Standard Model physics and hence the rates at LHC energies need to be measured accurately. In the present study, the methods for measurement of the Drell–Yan mass spectrum and the estimation of the cross-section have been developed for LHC operation at the centre-of-mass energy of 10 TeV and an integrated luminosity of 100 pb-1 in the context of CMS experiment
