${{\boldsymbol t}}$-QUARK MASS

We first list the direct measurements of the top quark mass which employ the event kinematics and then list the measurements which extract a top quark mass from the measured ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ cross-section using theory calculations. A discussion of the definition of the top quark mass in these measurements can be found in the review ``The Top Quark.''
For earlier search limits see PDG 1996 , Physical Review D54 1 (1996). We no longer include a compilation of indirect top mass determinations from Standard Model Electroweak fits in the Listings (our last compilation can be found in the Listings of the 2007 partial update). For a discussion of current results see the reviews "The Top Quark" and "Electroweak Model and Constraints on New Physics."

${{\boldsymbol t}}$-Quark Mass from Cross-Section Measurements INSPIRE search

The top quark $\overline{\rm{}MS}$ or pole mass can be extracted from a measurement of ${\mathit \sigma (}$ ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}{)}$ by using theory calculations. We quote below the $\overline{\rm{}MS}$ mass. See the review ``The Top Quark'' and references therein for more information.

1  Based on 5.3 fb${}^{-1}$ in ${{\mathit p}}{{\overline{\mathit p}}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 1.96 TeV. ABAZOV 2011S uses the measured ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ production cross section of $8.13$ ${}^{+1.02}_{-0.90}$ pb [ABAZOV 2011E] in the lepton plus jets channel to obtain the top quark $\overline{\rm{}MS}$ mass by using an approximate NNLO computation (MOCH 2008 , LANGENFELD 2009 ). The corresponding top quark pole mass is $167.5$ ${}^{+5.4}_{-4.9}$ GeV. A different theory calculation (AHRENS 2010 , AHRENS 2010A) is also used and yields m${}^{\overline{\rm{}MS}}_{t}$ = $154.5$ ${}^{+5.0}_{-4.3}$ GeV.
2  Based on 1 fb${}^{-1}$ of data at $\sqrt {s }$ = 1.96 TeV. Uses the ${{\mathit \ell}}$ + jets, ${{\mathit \ell}}{{\mathit \ell}}$ , and ${{\mathit \ell}}{{\mathit \tau}}$ + jets channels. ABAZOV 2009AG extract the pole mass of the top quark using two different calculations that yield $169.1$ ${}^{+5.9}_{-5.2}$ GeV (MOCH 2008 , LANGENFELD 2009 ) and $168.2$ ${}^{+5.9}_{-5.4}$ GeV (KIDONAKIS 2008 ).
3  Based on 1 fb${}^{-1}$ of data at $\sqrt {s }$ = 1.96 TeV. Uses the ${{\mathit \ell}}{{\mathit \ell}}$ and ${{\mathit \ell}}{{\mathit \tau}}$ + jets channels. ABAZOV 2009R extract the pole mass of the top quark using two different calculations that yield $173.3$ ${}^{+9.8}_{-8.6}$ GeV (MOCH 2008 , LANGENFELD 2009 ) and $171.5$ ${}^{+9.9}_{-8.8}$ GeV (CACCIARI 2008 ).
