The inclusive production cross-sections for Z boson production (analysed in μ + μ − or e + e − decay modes) in association with prompt and non-prompt J/ψ(→μ + μ − ) are measured relative to the inclusive production rate of Z bosons in the same fiducial volume to be (36.8±6.7±2.5)×10 −7 and (65.8±9.2±4.2)×10 −7 respectively.
