### Description

The study of electroweak boson production is an important part of
characterizing the standard model and it can also shed a light on new
physics, in the form of anomalous gauge couplings. We present studies
based on the measurement of WW scattering, the electroweak production
of Z gamma + 2 jets and the study of gamma gamma->WW through the
exclusive WW production performed by the CMS collaboration using 8TeV
proton-proton collisions at the LHC. With this set of analyses CMS
has set upper limits on the values of aQGC coefficients for both
dimension-6 and dimension-8 effective field theory operators, with
exclusive gamma gamma -> WW giving the most stringent limits to date.
