Outline

Outline

  • Is it worth trying to measure AFB at LHC?

  • Rather simple and unsophisticated study

    • Horace

    • Pythia

  • Motivate discussion and ideas

Ronan McNulty, LHCEWWG, 5.04.2011


Current precision on sin 2 q w

Current precision on sin2qW

Unsatisfactory that two most precise measurements are >3s apart, and that W.A. is marginally consistent with either.

Would like to make

measurement with precision

of ~0.0001.

Ronan McNulty, LHCEWWG, 5.04.2011


A fb away from z pole

HORACE: O()+-ind.

7TeV.

All rapidities.

AFB away from Z pole

  • Strong dependence with mass due to -Z interference. (To first order, zero on pole).

“Asymmetry greater further from pole”

Ronan McNulty, LHCEWWG, 5.04.2011


A fb away from z pole1

AFB away from Z pole

  • On pole, due to different RH, LH Z coupling…

  • Small positive value

HORACE: O()+-ind.

7TeV.

All rapidities.

Ronan McNulty, LHCEWWG, 5.04.2011


A fb on z pole

AFB on Z pole

AFB in muon channel at LHC is about 5 times larger than at LEP.

But sensitivity coming more from Al rather than Au or Ad

Ronan McNulty, LHCEWWG, 5.04.2011


Where are we most sensitive

Where are we most sensitive?

HORACE: Born

7TeV.

All rapidities.

Greatest sensitivity per event

at 82 GeV

About 2/3 that sensitivity at 91 GeV

But much more stats.

So measurement on pole appears

most sensitive to sin2q

far from pole

HORACE: Born

7TeV.

All rapidities.

near pole

Going forward increases a fb

Going forward increases AFB

HORACE: Born

7TeV.

89.2<m<93.2.

Ronan McNulty, LHCEWWG, 5.04.2011


Going forward increases sensitivity

Going forward increases sensitivity…

HORACE: Born

7TeV.

86.2<m<96.2.

A fb at lhc

HORACE: Born

Stat uncertainty 50fb-1

50fb 1 at 14 tev measures sin 2 q 0 0001

50fb-1 at 14 TeV measures sin2q~0.0001

1fb-1

HORACE: Born

50fb 1 at 14 tev measures sin 2 q 0 00011

50fb-1 at 14 TeV measures sin2q~0.0001

1fb-1

HORACE: Born

14TeV.

10fb-1

50fb-1

Stat uncertainty 10fb-1

  • How confident are we:

  • - of theory?

  • - of PDF uncertainties?

  • of detector systematics?

Stat uncertainty 50fb-1

Ronan McNulty, LHCEWWG, 5.04.2011


Uncertainty due to pdf

Uncertainty due to PDF

Uncertainty from PDF

(from one PDF set)

about the same as

statistical uncertainty.

With time, this should

improve (~ 50%?)

For 3<yZ<4

0.0004

AFB calculated

MSTW Eigenvector number

Ronan McNulty, LHCEWWG, 5.04.2011


Uncertainty due to pdf1

Uncertainty due to PDF

HORACE: Born

7TeV.

86.2<m<96.2.

Difference between

two (old) PDF sets

about the same as

statistical uncertainty.

0.0004

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Is it worth trying to measure AFB at LHC?

  • …. Probably.
