Title: Combination of CDF and D0 results on the mass of the top quark using up $$9.7\:{\rm fb}^{-1}$$ at the Tevatron

Abstract

We summarize the current top quark mass (m t) measurements from the CDF and D0 experiments at Fermilab. We combine published results from Run I (1992–1996) with the most precise published and preliminary Run II (2001–2011) measurements based on $$p\bar{p}$$ data corresponding to up to 9.7 fb $-$1 of $$p\bar{p}$$ collisions. Taking correlations of uncertainties into account, and combining the statistical and systematic contributions in quadrature, the preliminary Tevatron average mass value for the top quark is m t = 174.30 ± 0.65 GeV/c 2, corresponding to a relative precision of 0.37%.
