Polarization amplitudes fore+eW+W ande+eZZ

The main purpose of this work is to study the three weak boson vertex. We give explicit formulae for all polarization amplitudes of the processese+eW+W ande+eZZ, with arbitrary couplings between the various intermediate vector bosons. Using these expressions we discuss possible signatures ofC, P andT violation in the three vector boson coupling, as well as the effects of anomalous magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole moments ofW±. The amplitudes for the above processes in any SU(2) × U(1) and SU(2)L × SU(2)R × U(1) gauge theory are also given, while the special case of the Weinberg-Salam model is studied in detail.
