Limits on anomalous triple gauge couplings in pp¯ collisions at s=1.96 TeV Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We present a search for anomalous triple gauge couplings (ATGC) in WW and WZ boson production. The boson pairs are produced in pp̄ collisions at s=1.96TeV, and the data sample corresponds to 350pb-1 of integrated luminosity collected with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. In this search one W decays to leptons, and the other boson (W or Z) decays hadronically. Combining with a previously published CDF measurement of Wγ boson production yields ATGC limits of -0.18<λ<0.17 and -0.46<Δκ<0.39 at the 95% confidence level, using a cutoff scale Λ=1.5TeV. © 2007 The American Physical Society.
