Abstract

We summarize and combine direct measurements of the mass of the W boson in s√=1.96  TeV proton-antiproton collision data collected by CDF and D0 experiments at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. Earlier measurements from CDF and D0 are combined with the two latest, more precise measurements: a CDF measurement in the electron and muon channels using data corresponding to 2.2  fb−1 of integrated luminosity, and a D0 measurement in the electron channel using data corresponding to 4.3  fb−1 of integrated luminosity. The resulting Tevatron average for the mass of the W boson is MW=80387±16  MeV. Including measurements obtained in electron-positron collisions at LEP yields the most precise value of MW=80385±15  MeV.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
