Measurement of the W boson mass with the Collider Detector at Fermilab Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A measurement is presented of the two-jet differential cross section [Formula Presented] at center of mass energy [Formula Presented] GeV in [Formula Presented] collisions. The results are based on an integrated luminosity of 86 [Formula Presented] collected during 1994 to 1995 by the CDF Collaboration at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The differential cross section is measured as a function of the transverse energy [Formula Presented] of a jet in the pseudorapidity region [Formula Presented] for four different pseudorapidity bins of a second jet restricted to [Formula Presented] The results are compared with next-to-leading order QCD calculations determined using the CTEQ4 and MRST sets of parton distribution functions. None of the sets examined in this analysis provides a good description of the data. © 2001 The American Physical Society.
