The Z Line Shape

  • F. A. Berends
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 233)


With the advent of the first data from SLC and the prospect of LEP data in the near future the need for an accurate description of the Z line shape has become obvious. In the last few years considerable progress has been made towards an evaluation of the line shape which is accurate in size at the 0.3% level and in shape around the 10 MeV level (i.e. the positions of the maximum and half maxima).
