I present measurements of the W boson charge asymmetry and the W boson width (Γ W) using 350 pb-1 of CDF Run II data. The charge asymmetry is the first direct measurement, which uses a new technique to reconstruct the W rapidity by constraining its mass; the result will further constrain Parton Distribution Functions in future fits. The width measurement relies on a fit to the W transverse mass distribution. We measure Γ W = 2032 ± 71 MeV which is in good agreement with the Standard Model… Expand

We report the first measurements of inclusive W and Z cross sections times leptonic branching ratios for pp collisions at square root[s]=1.96 TeV, based on their decays to electrons and muons. The… Expand

A new generation of parton distribution functions with increased precision and quantitative estimates of uncertainties is presented. This work signiflcantly extends previous CTEQ and other global… Expand

We consider the Collins-Soper-Sterman resummation formalism, which describes the vector boson transverse momentum ${(Q}_{T})$ distribution at hadron colliders, and extend it for the distributions of… Expand

AbstractThe effects of QED radiative corrections to the processes
$$p\bar p \to W^ \pm \to lv$$
and
$$p\bar p \to Z_O \to l\bar l$$
are discussed. The purpose is twofold. On one hand the rate for… Expand

We present here a detailed description of the calculations of QED radiative corrections to the decays ofW andZ bosons. A comparison is made with experimental data. In particular it is shown that it… Expand
