Abstract

We have determined mW=79.910.39 GeV/c2 from an analysis of We and W data from the Collider Detector at Fermilab in pp collisions at a c.m. energy of s =1.8 TeV. This result, together with the world-average Z mass, determines the weak mixing angle to be sin2W=0.2320.008. Bounds on the top-quark mass are discussed.
