Measurement of Dσ/dy for High Mass


We report on the first measurement of the rapidity distribution dσ/dy over nearly the entire kinematic region of rapidity for ee pairs in the Z-boson region of 66 < Mee < 116 GeV/c and at higher mass Mee > 116 GeV/c. The data sample consists of 108 pb of pp̄ collisions at √ s = 1.8 TeV taken by the Collider Detector at Fermilab during 1992–1995. The total cross section in the Z-boson region is measured to be 252 ± 11 pb. The measured total cross section and dσ/dy are compared with quantum chromodynamics calculations in leading and higher orders. (CDF Note 5422)
