WW scattering studies for a Future Linear Collider

Event details

The scattering of longitudinal W bosons offers the possibility of finding new physics at the TeV energy scale. In the absence of a light Higgs boson, unitarity needs to be restored and a new spectrum of resonances could be found. We studied this scenario in the context of a Future Linear Collider. In particular, we focused on the TESLA experiment running at 800 GeV and an integrated luminosity of 1000 fb^{-1}. We determined the sensitivity limits of the Tesla experiment to two anomalous couplings: \alpha_4 and \alpha_5 analysing the hadronic channels deriving from e+e- \to \nu\nuWW and e+e- \to \nu\nuZZ.
