${{\boldsymbol Z}}$ HADRONIC POLE CROSS SECTION INSPIRE search

OUR FIT is obtained using the fit procedure and correlations as determined by the LEP Electroweak Working Group (see the note ``The ${{\mathit Z}}$ boson'' and ref. LEP-SLC 2006 ). This quantity is defined as

$\sigma{}{}^{0}_{\mathit h}$ = ${12 {{\mathit \pi}}\over \mathit M{}^{2}_{{{\mathit Z}}}}{\Gamma\mathrm {( {{\mathit e}^{+}} {{\mathit e}^{-}} )}~\Gamma\mathrm {({\mathrm {hadrons}})}\over \Gamma {}^{2}_{{{\mathit Z}}}}$

It is one of the parameters used in the ${{\mathit Z}}$ lineshape fit.

1  ABBIENDI 2001A error includes approximately 0.031 due to statistics, 0.033 due to event selection systematics, 0.029 due to uncertainty in luminosity measurement, and 0.011 due to LEP energy uncertainty.
2  BARATE 2000C error includes approximately $0.030$ due to statistics, $0.026$ due to experimental systematics, and $0.025$ due to uncertainty in luminosity measurement.
