Description
We present preliminary results of Upsilon production in p+p collisions at sqrt(s)=200 GeV at central rapidity. This measurement was performed at the STAR experiment through the Upsilon->e^+e^- decay channel. In this manuscript we describe the experimental details, from the development of a specially designed trigger setup to the analysis methods used to discriminate electrons from hadrons. The production cross-section obtained B*{(dsigma/dy)|(y=0)}=91(28)(22) pb is compatible with our expectations based on pQCD calculations.
