While reading about the current status of the top quark analysis at LHC I come across these two terms: inclusive measurement and differential measurement? What do they mean?

I came across another stack exchange question which explains the inclusive part but doesn't mention about differential measurement?

Is differential measurement just a subset of exclusive measurements?

    $\begingroup$ Differential measurement gives the production crossections as a function of some variable,(example a plot versus angle to be compared with theory) inclusive integrate over the variable. $\endgroup$

Yes, differential measurement is a subset of exclusive measurements with the particle angular distribution information.
