Result of merged abstracts: We present studies of WW, WZ and ZZ diboson production in pp collisions based on data recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC. These include precise measurements the production cross section of these processes at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8TeV . The leptonic decay modes of the W and Z bosons are used. The results are interpreted in terms of constraints on anomalous triple gauge couplings. We present measurements of triboson production and VV scattering in pp collisions at 8 TeV center-of-mass energy based on data recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC in 2012. The results are interpreted in terms of constraints on anomalous quartic gauge couplings. estigated. In addition we present studies of exclusive and quasi-exclusive gammagamma->W+W- production p-p collisions at the LHC using the CMS detector, and new limits on anomalous quartic couplings.
