A Precision Measurement of the Mass of the Top Quark

  title={A Precision Measurement of the Mass of the Top Quark},
    The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics contains about two dozen parameters – such as particle masses – whose origins are still unknown and cannot be predicted, but whose values are constrained through their interactions. In particular, the masses of the top (t) quark (M t) and W boson (M W) [1] constrain the mass of the long-hypothesized, but thus far not observed, Higgs boson. A precise measurement of the top-quark mass can therefore point to where to look for the Higgs, and indeed… CONTINUE READING
