Studies of gauge boson pair production and trilinear couplings

Journal Article

The gauge boson pair production processes [Formula presented], [Formula presented], [Formula presented], and [Formula presented] were studied using [Formula presented] collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approximately [Formula presented] at a center-of-mass energy of [Formula presented] TeV. Analysis of [Formula presented] production with subsequent [Formula presented] boson decay to [Formula presented] [Formula presented] is reported, including a fit to the [Formula presented] spectrum of the photons which leads to limits on anomalous [Formula presented] couplings. A search for [Formula presented] production with subsequent decay to [Formula presented] [Formula presented] is presented, leading to an upper limit on the [Formula presented] production cross section and limits on anomalous [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] couplings. A search for high [Formula presented] [Formula presented] bosons in [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] production is described, where one [Formula presented] boson decays to an electron and a neutrino and the second [Formula presented] boson or the [Formula presented] boson decays to two jets. A maximum likelihood fit to the [Formula presented] spectrum of [Formula presented] bosons resulted in limits on anomalous [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] couplings. A combined fit to the three data sets which provided the tightest limits on anomalous [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] couplings is also described. Limits on anomalous [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] couplings are presented from an analysis of the photon [Formula presented] spectrum in [Formula presented] events in the decay channels [Formula presented] of the [Formula presented] boson. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
