Measurement of the W boson mass at the Tevatron

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Presented are measurements of the W boson mass from the D0 and CDF collaborations at the Tevatron from the 1994-1996 run. The W events are produced in p{anti p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV. The W mass extracted from W {yields} e{nu} decays at D0 is determined to be 80.45 {+-} 0.12 GeV; and from W {yields} {mu}{nu} decays at CDF is 80. 43 {+-} 0.16 GeV. The world average W mass from the hadron collider measurements is 80.41 {+-} 0.09 GeV.
