Indirect measurement of sin(2)theta(W) (M-W) using e(+)e(-) pairs in the Z-boson region with p(p)over-bar collisions at a center-of-momentum energy of 1.96 TeV

Abstract:

Drell-Yan lepton pairs are produced in the process p̄p→e +e-+X through an intermediate γ*/Z boson. The lepton angular distributions are used to provide information on the electroweak-mixing parameter sin2θw via its observable effective-leptonic sin2θw, or sinâ¡2θefflept. A new method to infer sin 2θw or, equivalently, the W-boson mass MW in the on-shell scheme, is developed and tested using a previous CDF Run II measurement of angular distributions from electron pairs in a sample correspondin...
