[Host: Brad Cox]
One of the largest remaining questions in particle physics is the
mechanism by which the W and Z bosons gain their mass. In the
Standard Model of Particle Physics, this electroweak symmetry breaking
occurs via the Higgs mechanism, though this remains experimentally
unverified. I will overview this question and then concentrate on how
diboson production and kinematics can give us information about this
symmetry breaking. Experimental studies of boson pairs produced at
the Tevatron and observed at the D0 experiment will be presented,
ending with prospects for further study at the LHC.
