The production cross section for a W boson and two b jets is measured using proton&#8211;proton collisions at s=7 TeV in a data sample collected with the CMS experiment at the LHC corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb &#8722;1 . The W+bb¯ events are selected in the W&#8594;&#956;&#957; decay mode by requiring a muon with transverse momentum pT>25 GeV and pseudorapidity |&#951;|<2.1 , and exactly two b-tagged jets with pT>25 GeV and |&#951;|<2.4 . The measured W+bb¯ production cross section in the fiducial region, calculated at the level of final-state particles, is &#963;(pp&#8594;W+bb¯)×B(W&#8594;&#956;&#957;)=0.53±0.05(stat.)±0.09(syst.)±0.06(theo.)±0.01(lum.) pb , in agreement with the standard model prediction. In addition, kinematic distributions of the W+bb¯ system are in agreement with the predictions of a simulation using MadGraph and pythia.
