Gamma/Z interference in e+e- -> mu+ mu-

  • Calculate analytically the cross section for %$e^+ e^- \to \mu^+ \mu^-$% as function of the CMS energy, including both exchange of a photon and a Z boson. Neglect masses of the external fermions. Compare your result with Software.MadGraph.
  • The Forward-Backward asymmetry is %$A_{FB}(\theta)=\frac{ d\sigma (\theta) - d\sigma(\pi-\theta)}{ d\sigma (\theta) + d\sigma(\pi-\theta)}$%. Plot it as a function of the CMS energy.
