### Strong evidence for ZZ production in pp̄ collisions at s=1.96TeV

Abstract:

We report the first evidence of Z boson pair production at a hadron collider with a significance exceeding 4 standard deviations. This result is based on a data sample corresponding to 1.9fb-1 of integrated luminosity from pp̄ collisions at s=1.96TeV collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab II detector. In the ′ ′ channel, we observe three ZZ candidates with an expected background of 0.096-0.063+0.092 events. In the νν channel, we use a leading-order calculation of the relative ZZ and...
