    A measurement of the mass of the W boson is presented which is based on a sample of 5982 W → eν decays observed in pp̄ collisions at √s = 1.8 TeV with the D∅ detector during the 1992-1993 run. From a fit to the transverse mass spectrum, combined with measurements of the Z boson mass, the W boson mass is measured to be MW = 80.350±0.140(stat)±0.165(syst)±0.160(scale) GeV/c2. Detailed discussions of the determination of the absolute energy scale, the measured efficiencies, and all systematic uncertainties are presented.
