Description

Cross sections, both inclusive and differential, and ratios of cross sections for W and Z boson production in proton-proton collisions are presented. The measurements are compared to the predictions of precise QCD calculations using and range of PDF fits. The impact of these measurments on evvnt generators, future fits and their uncertainties is studied.
