We report on measurements of hadronic and leptonic cross sections and leptonic forward-backward asymmetries performed with the L3 detector in the years 1993-95. A total luminosity of 103 pb^-1 was collected at centre-of-mass energies \sqrt{s} ~ m_Z and \sqrt{s} ~ m_Z +/- 1.8 GeV which corresponds to 2.5 million hadronic and 245 thousand leptonic events selected. These data lead to a significantly improved determination of Z parameters. From the total cross sections, combined with our measurements in 1990-92, we obtain the final results: m_Z = 91189.8 +/- 3.1 MeV, Gamma_Z = 2502.4 +/- 4.2 MeV, Gamma_had = 1741.1 +/- 3.8 MeV, Gamma_l = 84.14 +/- 0.17 MeV. An invisible width of Gamma_inv = 499.1 +/- 2.9 MeV is derived which in the Standard Model yields for the number of light neutrino species N_nu = 2.978 +/- 0.014. Adding our results on the leptonic forward-backward asymmetries and the tau polarisation, the effective vector and axial-vector coupling constants of the neutral weak current to charged leptons are determined to be \bar{g}_V^l = -0.0397 +/- 0.0017 and \bar{g}_A^l = -0.50153 +/- 0.00053.Including our measurements of the Z -> b \bar{b} forward-backward and quark charge asymmetries a value for the effective electroweak mixing angle of sin^2\bar{\theta}_W = 0.23093 +/- 0.00066 is derived. All these measurements are in good agreement with the Standard Model of electroweak interactions. Using all our measurements of electroweak observables an upper limit on the mass of the Standard Model Higgs boson of m_H < 133 GeV is set at 95% confidence level.

Updated values of coupling constants and electroweak mixing angle.

Cross sections for hadron production from the 1993 data. The first DSYS error is the uncorrelated part of the systematic error. The second DSYS error is from the statistical error on the absolute luminosity. In addition there is a fully correlated multiplicative contribution to the systematic error of 0.039 PCT plus an absolute uncertainty of 3.2pb together with an additional error from the absolute luminosity of 0.105 PCT.

Cross sections for hadron production from the 1994 data. The first DSYS error is the uncorrelated part of the systematic error. The second DSYS error is from the statistical error on the absolute luminosity. In addition there is a fully correlated multiplicative contribution to the systematic error of 0.039 PCT plus an absolute uncertainty of 3.2pb together with an additional error from the absolute luminosity of 0.088 PCT.
