WW and WZ Diboson Production at the Tevatron

Jadranka Sekaric (Florida State University)

I will present the first evidence for WW//WZ decays in lepton plus jets final states at a hadron collider using ~1/fb of data collected with the D0 detector. The result is competitive and complementary to other diboson cross section measurements which use the fully leptonic final states. In addition, the analysis demonstrates the ability of the D0 experiment to isolate a small signal in a large background in a final state of direct relevance to searches for a low mass Higgs (m_H<135 GeV, WH->lvbb) and provides a valuable cross check of the analytical techniques used in the Higgs boson search at the Tevatron.
