Search for neutral resonances decaying into a Z boson and a pair of b jets or $\tau$ leptons


CMS Collaboration; Canelli, F; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P; et al (2016). Search for neutral resonances decaying into a Z boson and a pair of b jets or $\tau$ leptons. Physics Letters B, 759:369-394.

Abstract

A search is performed for a new resonance decaying into a lighter resonance and a Z boson. Two channels are studied, targeting the decay of the lighter resonance into either a pair of oppositely charged $\tau$ leptons or a $b\overline{b}$ pair. The Z boson is identified via its decays to electrons or muons. The search exploits data collected by the CMS experiment at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.8 fb$^{−1}$ . No significant deviations are observed from the standard model expectation and limits are set on production cross sections and parameters of two-Higgs-doublet models.
