A classically scale invariant (CSI) extension of the standard model (SM) induces radiative electroweak symmetry breaking and predicts anomalously large Higgs self-interactions. Hence, WLWL scattering processes can be a good probe of the symmetry breaking mechanism. We develop a theoretical framework for perturbative computation and calculate WW scattering amplitudes in a CSI model. We show that WLWL scattering amplitudes satisfy the equivalence theorem and that a large deviation of WLWL differential cross sections from the SM predictions is predicted depending on the c.m. energy and scattering angle. The results are more accurate than those based on the effective-potential approach. A prescription to implement predictions of the CSI model to Monte Carlo event generators is also presented.
