Precision EW measurements at hadron colliders

Alessandro Vicini

University of Milan

The wealth of very precise data collected by the Tevatron and LHC
experiments is offering the possibility of new high-precision tests of the Standard
Model. In this talk I will review the status of the determination
of two important pseudo-observables of the EW sector:
the W boson mass and the sinus of the weak mixing angle.
I will discuss the challenges that have to be faced at the LHC
to achieve results competitive with those from LEP and from the Tevatron.
Eventually, I will briefly summarize the impact of these high precision
studies in view of the searches for signals of physics beyond the Standard
