The production of J/psi and Upsilon mesons in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV is studied with the LHCb detector. The J/psi and Upsilon mesons are reconstructed in the mu+mu decay mode and the signal yields are determined with a fit to the mu+mu invariant mass distributions. The analysis is performed in the rapidity range 2.0<y<4.5 and transverse momentum range 0<p_T<14(15) GeV/c of the J/psi(Upsilon) mesons. The J/psi and Upsilon production crosssections and the fraction of J/psi mesons from bhadron decays are measured as a function of the meson p_T and y.
Projections of the fit result for a selected bin in $p_{\rm T}$ and $y$ for (a) the $ J/\psi$ invariant dimuon mass and (b) $t_z$. For the former, the total fitted function is shown (blue solid line) together with the signal distribution (red dotted line). In the $t_z$ projection the total fitted function is shown together with the $ J/\psi \mathrm{from} b $ component, the prompt signal, the background and the tail component due to the association of a $ J/\psi$ candidate with a wrong PV.
