Description

This thesis reports on the measurement of the W and Z boson inclusive production cross sections ({sigma}{sub W} and {sigma}{sub Z}) times electronic branching ratios (Br(W {yields} e{nu}) and Br(Z {yields} ee)) in p{anti p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV. The analysis is based on 12.8 pb{sup -1} of data taken in the 1992-1993 run by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider; the cross sections were measured to be: {sigma}{sub W} {center_dot} Br(W {yields} e{nu}) = 2. 36 {+-} 0.02 {+-} 0.07 {+-} 0.13 nb and {sigma}{sub Z} {center_dot} Br(Z {yields} ee) = 0.218 {+-} 0.008 {+-} ... continued below

The first error is statistical, the second error represents the non- luminosity systematic error, and the third error shows the uncertainty in the luminosity determination. Future prospects for similar measurements based on larger samples of data are discussed.
