Abstract

The production of J/psi is measured at midrapidity (vertical bar y vertical bar < 0.9) in proton-proton collisions at root s = 5.02 and 13 TeV, through the dielectron decay channel, using the ALICE detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The data sets used for the analyses correspond to integrated luminosities of L-int = 19.4 +/- 0.4 nb(-1 )and L-int = 32.2 +/- 0.5 nb(-1) at root s = 5.02 and 13 TeV, respectively. The fraction of non-prompt J/psi mesons, i.e. those originating from the decay of beauty hadrons, is measured down to a transverse momentum p(T) = 2 GeV/c (1GeV/c) at root s = 5.02 TeV (13 TeV). The p(T) and rapidity (y) differential cross sections, as well as the corresponding values integrated over p(T) and y, are carried out separately for prompt and non-prompt J/psi mesons. The results are compared with measurements from other experiments and theoretical calculations based on quantum chromodynamics (QCD). The shapes of the p(T) and y distributions of beauty quarks predicted by state-of-the-art perturbative QCD models are used to extrapolate an estimate of the b (b) over bar pair cross section at midrapidity and in the total phase space. The total b (b) over bar cross sections are found to be sigma(b (b) over bar) = 541 +/- 45 (stat.) +/- 69 (syst.)(-12)(+10) (extr.) mu b and sigma(b (b) over bar) = 218 +/- 37 (stat.)+/- 31 (syst.)(-9.1)(+8.2) (extr.) mu b at root s = 13 and 5.02 TeV, respectively. The value obtained from the combination of ALICE and LHCb measurements in pp collisions at root s = 13 TeV is also provided.
