Abstract

Based on 520 000 fermion pairs accumulated during the first three years of data collection by the ALEPH detector at LEP, updated values of the resonance parameters of the Z are determined to be MZ=(91.187±0.009) GeV, ΓZ=(2.501±0.012) GeV, σhad0=(41.60±0.27) nb, and Rℓ=20.78±0.13. The corresponding number of light neutrino species is Nν=2.97±0.05. The forward-backward asymmetry in lepton-pair decays is used to determine the ratio of vector to axial-vector couplings of leptons:gV2(MZ2)/gA 2(MZ2)=0.0052±0.0016. Combining this with ALEPH measurements of the b and c quark asymmetries and τ polarization gives sin2θWeff=0.2326±0.0013. Assuming the minimal Standard Model, and including measurements of MW/MZ from p {Mathematical expression} colliders and neutrino-nucleon scattering, the mass of the top quark is {Mathematical expression} GeV. © 1993 Springer-Verlag.
