Abstract

The observation of W and Z bosons and a measurement of the production cross sections in proton proton collisions at ECM = 7 TeV are presented using data from the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. Results are based on 118 W→lv and 125 Z/γ*→ll (5 =e,μ) candidate events corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 17 nb-1 and 22 nb respectively. The measured values of oW x BR(W→lv) = 9.3 ± 0.9 (stat) ± 0.6 (syst) ± 1.0 (lumi) nb and σZ/v* x BR(Z/γ*→ll, 66≤mll≤116) = 0.83 ± 0.07 (stat) ± 0.06 (syst) ± 0.09 (lumi) nb. A measurement of the W lepton charge asymmetry is also reported. A comparison with theoretical predictions based on NNLO QCD calculations shows agreement with the measurements.
