Unless otherwise noted the first quoted error is from statistics, the second from systematic uncertainties, and the third from luminosity. If only two errors are quoted the luminosity is included in the systematic uncertainties.

1  AABOUD 2017Z based on 20.2 fb${}^{-1}$ of data, using the mode ${{\mathit t}}$ ${{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit \tau}}{{\mathit \nu}}{{\mathit q}^{\,'}}{{\overline{\mathit q}}}{{\mathit b}}{{\overline{\mathit b}}}$ with ${{\mathit \tau}}$ decaying hadronically. Single prong and 3 prong decays of ${{\mathit \tau}}$ are separately analyzed. The result is consistent with the SM. The third quoted uncertainty is due to luminosity.
2  KHACHATRYAN 2017B based on 19.6 fb${}^{-1}$ of data, using a binned likelihood fit of templates to the data. Also the ratio ${\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ ; 8 TeV${)}/{\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ ; 7 TeV${)}$ = $1.43$ $\pm0.04$ $\pm0.07$ $\pm0.05$ is reported. The results are in agreement with NNLO SM predictions.
3  AAD 2016BK is an update of the value from AAD 2014AY using the improved luminosity calibration. The value $242.9$ $\pm1.7$ $\pm5.5$ $\pm5.1$ $\pm4.2$ pb is reported, where we have combined the systematic uncertainties in quadrature. Also the ratio ${\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ ; 8TeV${)}/{\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ ; 7TeV${)}$ = $1.328$ $\pm0.024$ $\pm0.015$ $\pm0.038$ $\pm0.001$ has been updated. The former result is consistent with the SM predictions at NNLO, while the latter result is 2.1 $\sigma $ below the expectation.
4  KHACHATRYAN 2016AW based on 19.7 fb${}^{-1}$ of data, using a binned likelihood fit to differential distributions of ${{\mathit b}}$-tagged and non-${{\mathit b}}$-tagged jets. The result is in good agreement with NNLO SM predictions.
5  KHACHATRYAN 2016BC based on 18.4 fb${}^{-1}$ of data. The last uncertainty is due to luminosity. Cuts on kinematical fit probability and ${{\mathit \Delta}}{{\mathit R}}({{\mathit b}},{{\mathit b}}$) are imposed. The major QCD background is determined from the data. The result is for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ = 172.5 GeV and in agreement with the SM prediction. The top quark ${{\mathit p}_{{T}}}$ spectra, also measured, are significantly softer than theoretical predictions.
6  AAD 2015BP based on 20.3 fb${}^{-1}$ of data. The result is for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ = 172.5 GeV and in agreement with the SM prediction $253$ ${}^{+13}_{-15}$ pb at NNLO+NNLL.
7  AAIJ 2015R, based on 2.0 fb${}^{-1}$ of data, reports $0.289$ $\pm0.043$ $\pm0.040$ $\pm0.029$ pb cross section for the forward fiducial region ${{\mathit p}_{{T}}}$ (${{\mathit \mu}}$) $>$ 25 GeV, 2.0 $<$ ${{\mathit \eta}}({{\mathit \mu}}$) $<$ 4.5, 50 GeV $<$ ${{\mathit p}_{{T}}}$ (${{\mathit b}}$) $<$ 100 GeV, 2.2 $<$ ${{\mathit \eta}}({{\mathit b}}$) $<$ 4.2, ${{\mathit \Delta}}{{\mathit R}}({{\mathit \mu}},{{\mathit b}}$) $>$ 0.5, and ${{\mathit p}_{{T}}}$ (${{\mathit \mu}}+{{\mathit b}}$) $>$ 20 GeV. The three errors are from statistics, systematics, and theory. The result agrees with the SM NLO prediction.
8  AAD 2014AY reports $242.4$ $\pm1.7$ $\pm5.5$ $\pm7.5$ $\pm4.2$ pb value based on 20.3 fb${}^{-1}$ of data. The four errors are from statistics, systematic, luminosity, and the 0.66$\%$ beam energy uncertainty. We have combined the systematic uncertainties in quadrature. The result is for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ = 172.5GeV; for other ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$, ${\mathit \sigma (}{\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}{)}$ = ${\mathit \sigma (}$172.5GeV${)}{\times }[1-0.0028{\times }({\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}-172.5$GeV)]. Also measured is the ratio ${\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ ; 8TeV${)}/{\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ ; 7TeV${)}$ = $1.326$ $\pm0.024$ $\pm0.015$ $\pm0.049$ $\pm0.001$. The results are consistent with the SM predictions at NNLO.
9  Based on 5.3 fb${}^{-1}$ of data. The result is for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ = 172.5 GeV, and a parametrization is given in eq.(6.1) for the mean value at other ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ values. The result is in agreement with the SM prediction $252.9$ ${}^{+6.4}_{-8.6}$ pb at NNLO.
10  Based on 19.6 fb${}^{-1}$ of data. The measurement is in the channel ${{\mathit t}}$ ${{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ $\rightarrow$ ( ${{\mathit b}}{{\mathit \ell}}{{\mathit \nu}}$) ( ${{\mathit b}}{{\mathit \tau}}{{\mathit \nu}}$), where ${{\mathit \tau}}$ decays into hadrons (${{\mathit \tau}_{{h}}}$). The result is for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ = 172.5 GeV. For ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ = 173.3 GeV, the cross section is lower by 3.1 pb.
