Abstract
A measurement of the W boson mass and width has been performed by the DELPHI collaboration using the data collected during the full LEP2 programme (19962000). The data sample has an integrated luminosity of 660 pb-1 and was collected over a range of centre-of-mass energies from 161 to 209 GeV. Results are obtained by applying the method of direct reconstruction of the mass of the W from its decay products in both the W+W-→ℓν̄ℓqq̄ and W+W-→qq̄q̄q channels. The W mass result for the combined data set is $M_W = 80.336 \pm0.055 ({\text{Stat.}}) \pm0.028 ({\text{Syst.}}) \pm0.025 ({\text{FSI}}) \pm0.009 ({\text{LEP}}) \text{GeV}/c
