Abstract:
A measurement of the top quark mass from dilepton decay channels is presented, using approximately 360 pb-1 of data colleced by the D0 experiment at Fermilab. The mass is measured from a total of 21 candidate dilepton events, using the neutrino weighting scheme. The measured mass is found to be 175.6+/-10.7(stat.)+/-6.0(syst.) GeV. This result is in good agreement with the current world average of the top quark mass.
