Title: Electroweak physics: search for zz and zw production in p anti-p collisions at s**(1/2) = 1.96 tev

Abstract

We present a search for ZZ and ZW vector boson pair production in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV using the leptonic decay channels ZZ {yields} llvv, ZZ {yields} lll'l' and ZW {yields} lll'v. In a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 194 pb{sup -1} collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab, 3 candidate events are found with an expected background of 1.0 {+-} 0.2 events. We set a 95% confidence level upper limit of 15.2 pb on the cross section for ZZ plus ZW production, compared to the standard model prediction of 5.0 {+-} 0.4 pb.
