Abstract

We report the determination of sin2θwin ν - N deep inelastic scattering from the NuTeV experiment. Using separate neutrino and anti-neutrino beams, NuTeV is able to extract sin2θwwith low systematic errors from the Paschos-Wolfenstein variable R-, a ratio of differences of neutrino and anti-neutrino neutral-current and charged-current cross-sections. NuTeV measures sin2θw(on-shell) = 0.2253 ± 0.0019(stat) ± 0.0010(syst), which implies Mw= 80.26 ± 0.11 GeV.
