We measure the mass of the top quark in lepton + jets final states using the full sample of p (p) over bar collision data collected by the D0 experiment in Run II of the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at root s = 1.96 TeV, corresponding to 9.7 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity. We use a matrix element technique that calculates the probabilities for each event to result from t (t) over bar production or background. The overall jet energy scale is constrained in situ by the mass of theW boson. We measure m(t) = 174.98 +/- 0.76 GeV. This constitutes the most precise single measurement of the top-quark mass.
