# Theoretical uncertainties on the W mass measurement

## by Alessandro Vicini (Università degli Studi e INFN Milano (IT))

Thursday, 20 March 2014 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 4-2-011 - TH common room )
 Description We review the main sources of theoretical uncertainty affecting the measurement of the W boson mass. We describe the role played by different classes of QCD and EW radiative corrections and the role of the proton PDFs. We discuss the status of Montecarlo generators implementing these corrections.
