Abstract : The leptonic decay angular distributions of intermediate bosons are obtained as a possible means of identifying the production reaction; for the latter, consideration is given to the cases: (a) W production by pions on protons (both twobody and inelastic reactions), treated in the peripheral (one pion exchange) approximation, and (b) W pair production in colliding electron-positron beam experiments. The polarization state of the boson was also investigated by obtaining the 3x3 density matrix, and its connection with the decay angular distributions is noted. (Author)
