dc.description.abstractFrom March until November 2010 the Compact Muon Solenoid 36 pb-1 of pp collisions at [the square root of sigma]= 7 TeV. One of the first precision Model that can be performed with this data is the measurement cross section and the charge asymmetry in the cross section. measurements are performed in the electron decay channel. The experiment recorded tests of the Standard of the W-production In this thesis, both results obtained are: [sigma](W -> ev) = 10.48 ± 0.03(stat.) 0.15(syst.) ± 0.09(th.) ± 0.42(lumi.)nb [sigma](W+ -> e+v, U(W+ - ez) = 1.430 ± 0.008(stat.) ± 0.022(syst.) ± 0.029(th.) [sigma](W- ->e-v) The measurements agree with state-of-the-art NNLO QCD calculations with the latest parton distribution functions.en_US
