Title: Measurement of the Muon Charge Asymmetry in P$$\bar{P}$$ -> W+X -> μν+X Events Using the DØ Detector

Abstract

This dissertation describes a measurement of the muon charge asymmetry from W → μν decay using 7.3 fb -1 of data collected from April 2002 to July 2010 using the DØ detector at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The measurement for muons with pseudorapidity |η| < 2 probes the charge asymmetry for momentum fraction x from 0.005 to 0.3. The charge asymmetry is compared with the theory predictions generated from resbos with CTEQ6.6 parton distribution functions and from powheg with CT10 and MSTW2008 PDFs. The results show good agreement with the electron charge asymmetry measurement from DØ. So far, our measurement is the most precise lepton charge asymmetry measurement done at the Tevatron.
