Abstract
We present the results of a search for standard model Higgs boson production with decay to WW*, identified through the leptonic final states e+e-ν&#773; ν,e±μ&#8723;ν&#773; ν and μ+μ-ν&#773; ν. This search uses 360  pb-1 of data collected from pp&#773; collisions at √s=1.96  TeV by the upgraded Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF II). We observe no signal excess and set 95% confidence level upper limits on the production cross section times branching ratio for the Higgs boson to WW* or any new scalar particle with similar decay products. These upper limits range from 5.5 to 3.2 pb for Higgs boson masses between 120 and 200   GeV/c2.
