Improved W boson mass measurement with the DØ detector

Abstract:

We have measured the W boson mass using the DØ detector and a data sample of 82 pb-1 from the Fermilab Tevatron collider. This measurement uses W→eν decays, where the electron is close to a boundary of a central electromagnetic calorimeter module. Such "edge" electrons have not been used in any previous DØ analysis, and represent a 14% increase in the W boson sample size. For these electrons, new response and resolution parameters are determined, and revised backgrounds and underlying event e...
