  • Content Description: We present the first evidence from a hadron collider of WW + WZ production with semileptonic decays. The data were recorded by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron and correspond to 1.07 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity obtained in proton-antiproton collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. The cross section observed for WW + WZ production is 20.2 {+-} 4.5 pb with a significance of 4.4 standard deviations.
