Electroweak measurements from the Tevatron

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The two detectors at the Fermilab Tevatron, D0 and CDF, have collected large samples of W and Z decays. With these data measurements of the properties of the W boson have been performed. From the ratio of the W and Z production cross sections a measurement of the W boson width of 2.062 {+-} 0.059 GeV has been obtained. The W boson mass has been measured to be 80.34 {+-} 0.15 GeV. Both detectors have observed diboson production and measured the triple gauge boson couplings. No deviations from Standard Model predictions have been observed.
