The number of neutrinos and the Z line shape

Published in Comptes rendus physique. 2002, vol. 3, no. 9, p. 1155-1164
Abstract Thanks to a precise calibration and monitoring of the LEP beam energy the Z resonance line shape has been precisely measured, hence permitting accurate determinations of the Z mass and width. A large effort was spent by the experiments for the measurement of the LEP luminosity, enabling the number of neutrino types to be precisely determined. The result, Nν=2.9841±0.0083, demonstrates the existence of only 3 neutrino species.
