Measurement of dσ/dM and Forward-Backward Charge Asymmetry for High-Mass Drell-Yan e+e- Pairs from pp¯ Collisions at s=1.8 TeV Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We report on a measurement of the mass dependence of the forward-backward charge asymmetry, A(FB), and production cross section d sigma/dM for e(+)e(-) pairs with mass M(ee)>40 GeV/c(2). The data sample consists of 108 pb(-1) of pp macro collisions at square root of s = 1.8 TeV taken by the Collider Detector at Fermilab during 1992-1995. The measured asymmetry and d sigma/dM are compared with the predictions of the standard model and a model with an extra Z' gauge boson.
