Description

The ATLAS collaboration has carried a set of measurements to test self-interactions of the electroweak gauge bosons. Among these measurements are the production of W or Z bosons in the vector-boson fusion channel and two same-charge W bosons in the vector-boson scattering channel. Furthermore, the first evidence for the production of three gauge bosons has been obtained. Cross sections are compared with Standard Model predictions in various fiducial phase spaces, and limits on anomalous couplings between gauge bosons are set, which provide model-independent constraints on new physics.
