The production of $\Upsilon$ mesons in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt=7$ and $8 \mathrm{TeV}$ is studied with the LHCb detector using data samples corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $1 \mathrm{fb}^{1}$ and $2 \mathrm{fb}^{1}$ respectively. The production crosssections and ratios of crosssections are measured as functions of the meson transverse momentum $p_T$ and rapidity $y$, for $p_T<30 \mathrm{GeV}/c$} and $2.0<y<4.5$.
Efficiencycorrected dimuon mass distributions for (left) $\sqrt{s}=7 \mathrm{TeV}$ and (right) $\sqrt{s}=8 \mathrm{TeV}$ samples in the region $3< p_{\mathrm T} <4 {\mathrm{ Ge V /}c} $, $3.0<y<3.5$. The thick dark yellow solid curves show the result of the fits, as described in the text. The three peaks, shown with thin magenta solid lines, correspond to the $\Upsilon\mathrm{(1S)}$ , $\Upsilon\mathrm{(2S)}$ and $\Upsilon\mathrm{(3S)}$ signals (left to right). The background component is indicated with a blue dashed line. To show the signal peaks clearly, the range of the dimuon mass shown is narrower than that used in the fit.
