Description

The scattering of electroweak bosons tests the gauge structure of the Standard Model and is sensitive to anomalous quartic gauge couplings. In this talk, we present recent results on vector-boson scattering from the ATLAS experiment using proton-proton collisions at √s=13 TeV. This includes the observation of WZ and same-sign-WW production via vector-boson scattering along with a measurement of VV production in semileptonic final states. If available, a measurement of Z𝛾 production via vector-boson scattering will also be presented. The results can be used to constrain new physics that manifests as anomalous electroweak-boson self interactions.
