Description

We measure the cross section and differential distributions for the production of a weak bosons (W or Z) in association with a photon in data collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron ppbar collider at sqrt(s)=1.96 TeV and corresponding to integrated luminosities of up to 6.2 fb-1. The W and Z bosons are identified via their leptonic decays to electrons or muons. The results obtained are consistent with the standard model predictions for from next-to-leading order calculations. The differential distributions are used to set limits on possible anomalous couplings in the triple gauge boson vertices.
