Measurement of Z(0) and Drell-Yan production cross sections using dimuons in (p)over-bar-p collisions at root s=1.8TeV Academic Article uri icon


  • We present a measurement of [Formula Presented] boson and Drell-Yan production cross sections in [Formula Presented] collisions at [Formula Presented] using a sample of [Formula Presented] accumulated by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. The Drell-Yan cross section is measured in the mass range of [Formula Presented] We compare the measurements with the predictions of quantum chromodynamics in both leading order and next-to-leading order, incorporating the recent parton distribution functions. The measurements are consistent with the standard model expectations. © 1999 The American Physical Society.
