Invariant-mass distribution of jet pairs produced in association with a $W$ boson in \ppbar collisions at $\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV using the full CDF Run II data set


CDF Collaboration; et al; Canelli, F; Kilminster, B (2014). Invariant-mass distribution of jet pairs produced in association with a $W$ boson in \ppbar collisions at $\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV using the full CDF Run II data set. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 89:092001.

Abstract

We report on a study of the dijet invariant-mass distribution in events with one identified lepton, a significant imbalance in the total event transverse momentum, and two jets. This distribution is sensitive to the possible production of a new particle in association with a $W$ boson, where the boson decays leptonically. We use the full data set of proton-antiproton collisions at 1.96 TeV center-of-mass energy collected by the Collider Detector at the Fermilab Tevatron and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 8.9 fb$^{-1}$. The data are found to be consistent with standard-model expectations, and a 95$\%$ confidence level upper limit is set on the cross section for a $W$ boson produced in association with a new particle decaying into two jets.
