We present results of a search for W+W− production through the leptonic decay channel W+W− → l+l− in vv⊯ in p⊯p collisions at √s = 1.8TeV. In a 108pb−1 data sample recorded with the Collider Detector at Fermilab, five W+W− candidates are found with an expected standard model background of 1.2±0.3events. The W+W− production cross section is measured to beσ(p⊯p → W+W−)=10.2−5.1+6.3(stat)±1.6(syst)pb, in agreement with the standard model prediction. Limits on WWγand WWZ anomalous couplings are presented.
