This Letter reports on a first measurement of the inclusive W+jets cross section in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV at the LHC, with the ATLAS detector. Cross sections, in both the electron and muon decay modes of the W-boson, are presented as a function of jet multiplicity and of the transverse momentum of the leading and next-to-leading jets in the event. Measurements are also presented of the ratio of cross sections σ(W+≥n)/σ(W+≥n-1) for inclusive jet multiplicities n=1-4. The results, based on an integrated luminosity of 1.3 pb , have been corrected for all known detector effects and are quoted in a limited and well-defined range of jet and lepton kinematics...View full abstract
