A ug 2 00 7 Measurements of Inclusive W and Z Cross Sections in pp Collisions at √ s = 1 . 96 TeV

We report the first measurements of inclusive W and Z boson cross sections times the corresponding leptonic branching ratios for pp collisions at √ s = 1.96 TeV based on the decays of the W and Z bosons into electrons and muons. The data were recorded with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab 4 Tevatron and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 72.0 ± 4… (More)
