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
