The first measurement of the top quark pair production cross section in the fully hadronic channel at a center-of-mass energy of √s = 7 TeV is presented. The measurement has been performed using an integrated luminosity of 1.09 fb−1, collected with the CMS detector. The reconstruction of the candidates is performed after a cut-based event selection using a kinematic fit. A data-driven technique is used to estimate the dominant background from QCD multijet production. The cross section is determined from a fit to the top quark mass. The cross section measurement yields σ() = 136 ±20(stat.) ±40(sys.) ±8(lumi.) pb. This result is consistent with an independent measurement in the same channel, with the measurements in other decay channels and with the Standard Model predictions.
