Abstract: The production of Υ mesons in pp collisions at √s=7 and 8 TeV is studied with the LHCb detector using data samples corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1 fb−1 and 2 fb−1 respectively. The production cross-sections and ratios of cross-sections are measured as functions of the meson transverse momentum p and rapidity y, for p <30 GeV/c and 2.0 <y <4.5.[Figure not available: see fulltext.]
