Electroweak results from the Tevatron

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Using data collected from p{anti p} collisions at the Fermilab Tevatron collider the latest electroweak results from the CDF and D0 collaborations are presented. Measurements of the W and Z boson production cross sections are detailed, which in addition to testing the Standard Model in their own right also allow a determination of the W boson width. Analyses of Drell-Yan production above the Z pole allow limits to be placed on the existence of neutral gauge bosons beyond the Standard Model and parton compositeness. A first measurement of the forward backward asymmetry of the Drell-Yan lepton pairs above the Z ... continued below

A first measurement of the forward backward asymmetry of the Drell-Yan lepton pairs above the Z pole is also presented. The latest measurements from both collaborations of the W mass are described, which when averaged yield a W mass value of 80.375 {+-} 0.100 GeV/c{sup 2}.
