We present measurements of the differential cross section d sigma/dp(T)(gamma) for the associated production of a c-quark jet and an isolated photon with rapidity vertical bar y(gamma)vertical bar < 1.0 and transverse momentum 30 < p(T)(gamma) < 300 GeV. The c-quark jets are required to have vertical bar y(jet)vertical bar < 1.5 and p(T)(jet) > 15 GeV. The ratio of differential cross sections for gamma + c to gamma + b production as a function of p(T)(gamma) is also presented. The results are based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 8.7 fb(-1) recorded with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron p (p) over bar Collider at root s = 1.96 TeV. The obtained results are compared to next-to-leading order perturbative QCD calculations using various parton distribution functions, to predictions based on the k(T)-factorization approach, and to predictions from the SHERPA and PYTHIA Monte Carlo event generators.
