Abstract

We present measurements of triple gauge boson coupling parameters using data recorded by the OPAL detector at LEP2 at a centre-of-mass energy of 172 GeV. A total of 120 W-pair candidates has been selected in the qq̄qq̄, qq̄ℓv̄ and ℓv̄ℓ̄′vℓ′ decay channels, for an integrated luminosity of 10.4 pb-1. We use these data to determine several different anomalous coupling parameters using the measured cross-section and the distributions of kinematic variables. We measure αΒφ=0.35 +1.29 -1.07 ± 0.38, α=0.00+0.30 -0.28 ± 0.11, αW = 0.18+0.49 -0.47 ± 0.23, Δgz 1=-0.03+0.40 -0.37 ± 0.14, Δκ(H1SZ) γ = 0.03+0.55 -0.51 ± 0.20, and Δκ=0.03+0.49 -0.46 ± 0.21. Combining the α result with our previous result obtained from the 161 GeV data sample we measure α=-0.08+0.28 -0.25 ± 0.10. All of these measurements are consistent with the Standard Model.

N2 - We present measurements of triple gauge boson coupling parameters using data recorded by the OPAL detector at LEP2 at a centre-of-mass energy of 172 GeV. A total of 120 W-pair candidates has been selected in the qq̄qq̄, qq̄ℓv̄ℓ and ℓv̄ℓℓ̄′vℓ′ decay channels, for an integrated luminosity of 10.4 pb-1. We use these data to determine several different anomalous coupling parameters using the measured cross-section and the distributions of kinematic variables. We measure αΒφ=0.35 +1.29 -1.07 ± 0.38, αWφ=0.00+0.30 -0.28 ± 0.11, αW = 0.18+0.49 -0.47 ± 0.23, Δgz 1=-0.03+0.40 -0.37 ± 0.14, Δκ(H1SZ) γ = 0.03+0.55 -0.51 ± 0.20, and Δκ=0.03+0.49 -0.46 ± 0.21. Combining the αWφ result with our previous result obtained from the 161 GeV data sample we measure αWφ=-0.08+0.28 -0.25 ± 0.10. All of these measurements are consistent with the Standard Model.
