dc.description.abstractA measurement is presented of the cross section for the electroweak production of a W boson in association with two jets in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. The data set was collected with the CMS detector and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.3 fb⁻¹. The measured fiducial cross section for W bosons decaying to electrons or muons and for \(p_{T}^{j1}\) > 60 GeV, \(p_{T}^{j2}\) > 50 GeV, |\(η^{j}\)| < 4. 7, and \(m_{jj}\) > 1000 GeV is 0.42 ± 0.04 (stat) ± 0.09 (syst) ± 0.01 (lumi) pb. This result is consistent with the standard model leading-order prediction of 0.50 ± 0.02 (scale) ± 0.02 (PDF) pb obtained with MadGraph5_amc@nlo 2.1 interfaced to pythia 6.4. This is the first cross section measurement for this process.en_US
