Abstract
The strong-coupling constant αs(mZ)is measured from the transverse-momentum distribution of Z bosons measured at√s=1.96 TeV with the CDF experiment, using predictions based on qT-resummation at NNLO+NNLL, as implemented in the DY Turboprogram. The measurement is performed through a simultaneous fit of αs(mZ)and the non-perturbative Sudakov form factor.
