Coherent production of $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu}$ mesons is studied in leadlead collision data at a nucleonnucleon centreofmass energy of $5\mathrm{ Te V} $ collected by the LHCb experiment. The data set corresponds to an integrated luminosity of about $ 10 {\mathrm{ \upmu b}^{1}} $. The $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu}$ mesons are reconstructed in the dimuon final state, where the muons are detected within the pseudorapidity region $2.0 < \eta < 4.5$. The $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu}$ mesons are required to have transverse momentum $ p_{\mathrm{ T}} <1\mathrm{ Ge V} $ and rapidity $2.0 < {y} < 4.5$. The crosssection times branching fraction within this fiducial region is measured to be $\sigma= 5.3 \pm {0.2} (stat) \pm {0.5} (syst) \pm {0.7} (lumi)\mathrm{ mb} $. The crosssection is also measured in five bins of $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu}$ rapidity. The results are compared to predictions from phenomenological models.
Dimuon invariant mass spectrum in the range between $2.7$ and $4.0\mathrm{ Ge V} $. The contribution of (solid blue line) $ { J \mskip 3mu/\mskip 2mu\psi \mskip 2mu}$ , (solid green line) $\psi {(2S)}$ and (black dashed line) nonresonant are shown individually and the sum of all contributions is represented by the orange curve.

Distribution of $\log( p_{\mathrm{ T}}^{2} )$ of dimuon candidates after all requirements have been applied. The orange line represents the fit to the data points; the blue line shows the coherent contribution and the green (black) line shows the incoherent and feeddown (nonresonant) component. A fit is performed to data using three different templates obtained from the STARlight event generator.
