Measurement of the Drell-Yan \(\phi ^{*}_{\eta }\) Distribution

Chapter
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)

Abstract

Despite the relatively poor muon momentum resolution, similar precision can be achieved in the dimuon and dielectron channels. Compared to previous analyses that only considered the dielectron channel, the ability to compare consistency between the two channels can only help to increase confidence in the accuracy of the measurement.
