Indirect measurement of sin2θW (M_W) using e+e- pairs in the Z-boson region with pp¯ collisions at a center-of-momentum energy of 1.96 TeV


CDF Collaboration; et al; Canelli, F; Kilminster, B (2013). Indirect measurement of sin2θW (M_W) using e+e- pairs in the Z-boson region with pp¯ collisions at a center-of-momentum energy of 1.96 TeV. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 88(7):072002.

Abstract

Drell-Yan lepton pairs are produced in the process pp¯→e+e−+X through an intermediate γ∗/Z boson. The lepton angular distributions are used to provide information on the electroweak-mixing parameter sin2θW via its observable effective-leptonic sin2θW, or sin2θlepteff. A new method to infer sin2θW or, equivalently, the W-boson mass MW in the on-shell scheme, is developed and tested using a previous CDF Run II measurement of angular distributions from electron pairs in a sample corresponding to 2.1  fb−1 of integrated luminosity from pp¯ collisions at a center-of-momentum energy of 1.96 TeV. The value of sin2θlepteff is found to be 0.2328±0.0011. Within a specified context of the standard model, this results in sin2θW=0.2246±0.0011, which corresponds to a W-boson mass of 80.297±0.055  GeV/c2, in agreement with previous determinations in electron-position collisions and at the Tevatron collider.

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.
