Measurements on W and Z Production and Decay from the UA2 Experiment at the CERN \(\bar{p}p\) Collider

  • Allan G. Clark
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 197)


A summary is presented of results from the UA2 experiment on the production and decay of the W and Z bosons. A comparison is made with expectations of the standard electroweak model, and the QCD model for strong interactions. Experimental uncertainties relevant to past and future measurements in the UA2 detector are briefly discussed.
