Description

Precise studies of distributions and asymmetries in W and Z production offer constraints on the parton content of protons. Improving the knowledge of parton content can help avoid systematic limitations in measuring the mass of the W boson. Measurements of Z rapidity and W charge asymmetry in fb-1 samples are presented.
