Abstract

We have determined mW=79.91 0.39 GeV/c2 from an analysis of We and W data from the Collider Detector at Fermilab in pp collisions at s=1.8 TeV. From this result and the world-average Z mass, the weak mixing angle is determined to be sin2 W=0.232 0.008. An upper bound on the top-quark mass derived from this result is discussed.
