10 5th Rencontres du VietnamP.Azzurri - W Physics at LEP Triple Gauge Couplings The most general Lorentz Invariant WWV (V= ,Z) vertex has 7 complex couplings

11 5th Rencontres du VietnamP.Azzurri - W Physics at LEP W-pair angular distributions The WWZ and WW  gauge couplings can be measured in W-pair events, fitting the W-pair event rates and the W production and decay angular distributions.
