Title: Search for a neutral Higgs boson decaying to a W boson pair in p antip collisions at s**(1/2) = 1.96-TeV

The authors present the results of a search for standard model Higgs boson production with decay to WW*, identified through the leptonic final states e{sup +}e{sup -} {bar {nu}}{nu}, e{sup {+-}}{mu}{sup {-+}} {bar {nu}}{nu} and {mu}{sup +} {mu}{sup -} {bar {nu}}{nu}. This search uses 360 pb{sup -1} of data collected from p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV by the upgraded Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF II). They observe no signal excess and set 95% confidence level upper limits on the production cross section times branching ratio for the Higgs boson to WW* or any new scalar particle with similar decay products. These upper limits range from 5.5 to 3.2 pb for Higgs boson masses between 120 and 200 GeV/c{sup 2}.
