Title: Search for {ital W} boson pair production in {ital p{bar p}} collisions at {radical}{ital s}=1.8 TeV

Abstract

The results of a search for {ital W} boson pair production in {ital p{bar p}} collisions at {radical}{ital s}=1.8 TeV with subsequent decay to dilepton ({ital e}{mu},{ital ee}, and {mu}{mu}) channels are presented. One event is observed with an expected background of 0.56{plus_minus}0.13 events with an integrated luminosity of approximately 14pb{sup {minus}1}. Assuming equal strengths for the {ital WWZ} and {ital WW}{gamma} gauge boson coupling parameters {kappa} and {lambda}, limits on the {ital CP}-conserving anomalous coupling constants are {minus}2.6{lt}{Delta}{kappa}{lt}2.8 and {minus}2.1{lt}{lambda}{lt}2.1 at the 95% confidence level.
