A measurement of the W boson charge asymmetry with the ATLAS detector

Abstract:

Uncertainties on the parton distribution functions (PDFs), in particular those of the valence quarks, can be constrained at LHC energies using the charge asymmetry in the production of W± bosons.

This thesis presents a measurement of the electron channel, lepton charge asymmetry using 497 pb-1 of data recorded with the ATLAS detector in 2011. The measurement is included in PDF fits using the machinery of HERAPDF and is found to have some constraining power beyo...
