Diboson Production in Proton-Proton Collisions at s=7\sqrt{s}=7 TeV

Abstract

This review article summarizes results on the production cross section measurements of electroweak boson pairs (WWWW, WZWZ, ZZZZ, WγW\gamma and ZγZ\gamma) at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in pppp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of s=7\sqrt{s}=7 \TeV. The two general-purpose detectors at the LHC, ATLAS and CMS, recorded an integrated luminosity of 5fb15fb^{-1} in 2011, which offered the possibility to study the properties of diboson production to high precision. These measurements test predictions of the Standard Model (SM) in a new energy regime and are crucial for the understanding and the measurement of the SM Higgs boson and other new particles. In this review, special emphasis is drawn on the combination of results from both experiments and a common interpretation with respect to state-of-the-art SM predictions.Comment: 60 page
