Abstract

We present the standard model prediction for the eight angular coefficients of the W boson, which completely describes its differential cross section in hadron collisions. These coefficients are ratios of the W helicity cross sections and the total unpolarized cross section. We also suggest a technique to experimentally extract the coefficients, which we demonstrate in the Collins-Soper azimuthal-angle analysis.
