Title: A Measurement of the $Z$ forward-backward charge asymmetry in $$p\bar{p} \to e^+ e^-$$

Abstract

We present a measurement of the Z boson forward-backward charge asymmetry of the process p$$\bar{p}$$→ γ*/ Z + X [arrow right] e + e - + X , where the mass of the intermediate γ*/ Z has invariant mass above 30 GeV/c 2 . The measurement uses 0.36 fb -1 of Run II data. The method of matrix inversion is used to correct for the distortion in the measurement caused by the detector resolution and photon radiation in the final state. A search for a new physics based upon the forward-backward asymmetry is also presented.
