Description

The SLAC polarized electron beam allows the SLD experiment a high-precision measurement of sin{sup 2}{theta}{sub W}{sup eff} using the parity violating cross section asymmetry A{sub LR} at the e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} {yields} Z{sup o} vertex. The SLD also uses the small luminous e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} collision region and CCD vertex detector to tag heavy quark final states for probing the Z{sup o} {yields} q{bar q} vertex. Results are presented on the following selected topics: A{sub LR}, the Z{sup o} {yields} the Z{sup o} {yields} b{bar b} branching fraction R{sub b}, and the parity violating cross section asymmetries A{sub b} and ... continued below
