  • Event date: 22nd February 2007
  • Speaker: Un-Ki Yang (University of Manchester)
  • Location: Room 5325,

Event details

Precise value of the top quark mass is an important input to precision electroweak tests as a fundamental parameter of the Standard Model, and provides a crucial guide for new physics. Precise measurements of the top mass using top pair events from proton-antiproton collisions at CDF will be presented. The precision we achieved is already surpassed Run II goal. Various methods with complementary CDF strategies will be discussed for three different top decay channels.
