Abstract:
We present the first measurement of the A_2 and A_3 angular coefficients of the W boson produced in proton-antiproton collisions. We study W --> e nu_e and W --> mu nu(mu) candidate events produced in association with at least one jet at CDF, during Run Ia and Run Ib of the Tevatron at s**(1/2) = 1.8 TeV. The corresponding integrated luminosity was 110 pb-1. The jet balances the transverse momentum of the W and introduces QCD effects in W boson production. The extraction of the angular coefficients is achieved through the direct measurement of the azimuthal angle of the charged lepton in the Collins-Soper rest-frame of the W boson. The angular coefficients are measured as a function of the transverse momentum of the W boson. The electron, muon, and combined results are in good agreement with the Standard Model prediction, up to order alpha2_s in QCD.
