Abstract:
We have measured the charge asymmetry of muons produced in W boson decay as a function of muon pseudorapidity. The W bosons were produced in pp̄ collisions at √s = 1.8 TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron and recorded by the D⊘ detector during the run period 1992-1993 (run 1A) and 1994-1995 (run 1B). The combined data for both periods consists of 8831 W → μν decays with; ημ; < 1.0 selected from events corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 61.9 pb⁻¹ and 664 decays with 1.0 ≤; ημ; < 1.6 corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 44.5 pb⁻¹.
