  • Description: The angular distributions of leptons from the decays of Drell-Yan dilepton pairs are studied in 8.6 fb-1 of pp¯ collisions recorded with the DØ detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. Drell-Yan events are often analysed in the Collins-Soper reference frame, which defines two angles, &phis;cs and &thetas;cs, in the planes transverse to and along the beam direction respectively. The shape of the &phis;cs distribution is measured in bins of the dilepton transverse momentum, using events in the e+e- and μ+μ- decay channels. Predictions from the Monte Carlo program PYTHIA are in good agreement with the data.
