Unformatted text preview: cross section from the two algorithms agree to within 10%. The most recent combination (Tevatron Electroweak Working Group, 2009b) incorporates published and prelimiR nary results based on samples ranging from Ldt ¼ 2:1 to R Ldt ¼ 5:4 fbÀ1 , and combined H ! WW limits are at Aaltonen et al. (2010d). The cross-section upper bounds Rev. Mod. Phys., Vol. 84, No. 4, October–December 2012 The SM has been tested extensively over the last 40 years. The only significant deviation from its predictions is the existence of neutrino mass. Ongoing studies of the SM are being carried out by the Tevatron experiments, CDF, and D0. This paper presents results of these tests and discusses prospects for the remainder of the Tevatron running and the transition from the Tevatron to the LHC. CDF and D0 presented a wide variety of results relating to the EW sector. Among the results are observation of all SM diboson processes involving W , Z, and , including for the first time WZ production, observation of EW production of single-top quarks and the corresponding measurement of jVtb j, the world’s best measurements of the top-quark and W boson masses allowing improved indirect constraints on the Higgs-boson mass, and ongoing searches for the Higgs boson which have begun to exclude mass values outside of the existing limits. In addition to testing the SM, some of these are benchmark measurements eventually to be compared with corresponding results from the LHC. Others, such as the top-quark and W boson masses, are likely to be legacy measurements from the Tevatron. With additional luminosity still to come for CDF and D0, many of these measurements will significantly improve before the end of Run II at the Tevatron. This is an exciting time in particle physics as the field transitions from the era of the Tevatron to an era of the LHC as the machine to probe physics at the energy frontier. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The many beautiful experimental measurements summarized in this paper are the result of the work of thousands of people from the Fermilab accelerator division, CDF and D0. The authors wish to thank those involved in making these possible. In addition, the authors thank Andrew Askew, Tom Diehl, Reinhard Schwienhorst, and Junjie Zhu for useful discussion and clarification.
