Description

Gfitter results from the global Standard Model (SM) fit to electroweak precision data, including newest Tevatron measurements, are reviewed and discussed. Constraints on the Higgs and top-quark masses, as well as on alpha_s(M_Z), are studied in some detail, and outlooks to the LHC and ILC eras are presented. Information from the electroweak fit on loop contributions from beyond-SM models is obtained through an analysis of the so-called oblique parameters.
