First Results at the LEP e+e- Collider

  • J. Steinberger
Part of the The Subnuclear Series book series (SUS, volume 28)

Abstract

The first year of LEP running was devoted to the study of Z production and decay on the resonance. Results of the four collaborations, based on ∼400′000 decays, show that the number of fermion families is three, give a precise measure of the Z mass, furnish tests of the electroweak theory at a new level sensitivity, and constrain the top mass.
