Description

We present an alternative approach to the direct measurements of the top quark mass using D0 data. We discuss extractions of the pole mass of the top quark based on measurements of the inclusive and unfolded differential pp̄ → tt̄ production cross section as a function of p T (t) and tt̄ mass.. We use the full Run II data set of pp̄ collisions collected by the D0 experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9.7 fb −1 .
