Abstract

We present a measurement of Z(0) boson and Drell-Yan production cross sections in (p) over bar p collisions at root s = 1.8 TeV using a sample of 107 pb(-1) accumulated by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. The Drell-Yan cross section is measured in the mass range of M-mu mu>40 GeV/c(2). We compare the measurements with the predictions of quantum chromodynamics in both leading order and next-to-leading order, incorporating the recent parton distribution functions. The measurements are consistent with the standard model expectations. [S0556-2821(99)01603-3].
