title = "Measurement of the Bc-meson production fraction and asymmetry in 7 and 13 TeV pp collisions MEASUREMENT of the Bc-MESON PRODUCTION ... AAIJ R. et al.",

abstract = "The production fraction of the Bc-meson with respect to the sum of B- A nd B0 mesons is measured in both 7 and 13 TeV center-of-mass (c.m.) energy pp collisions produced by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), using the LHCb detector. The rate, approximately 3.7 per mille, does not change with energy, but shows a transverse momentum dependence. The Bc-Bc+ production asymmetry is also measured and is consistent with zero within the determined statistical and systematic uncertainties of a few percent.",
