The new W mass is out, and still… December 15, 2006Posted by dorigo in news, physics, science.
Still one week to go before I can put the number here, darn!
The thing is, despite the procedure having been scrutinized, the blinded result analyzed, and all the rest, there is still a formal step to do before making the number public: the blessing. I thought I could write down a number here, but I have to reckon that the result is only pre-blessed today.
I know the number however, and I can say it is not going to change the picture much. The low value of the preferred Higgs mass remains low, the world W mass measurement will remain close to where it is, and everybody can sleep tight tonight – no big surprises.
