Measurement of the W boson mass

Abstract:

We present a measurement of the W boson mass using data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron during 1994-1995. We identify W bosons by their decays to ev final states. We extract the W mass MW by fitting the transverse mass and transverse electron momentum spectra from a sample of 28 323 W → ev decay candidates. We use a sample of 3563 dielectron events, mostly due to Z → ee decays, to constrain our model of the detector response. From the transverse mass fit we measure MW ...
