Search for heavy resonances in the W/Z-tagged dijet mass spectrum in pp collisions at 7 TeV


CMS Collaboration; Chatrchyan, S; Khachatryan, V; Amsler, C; Chiochia, V; De Visscher, S; Favaro, C; Ivova Rikova, M; Millan Mejias, B; Otiougova, P; Robmann, P; Snoek, H; Tupputi, S; Verzetti, M; et al (2013). Search for heavy resonances in the W/Z-tagged dijet mass spectrum in pp collisions at 7 TeV. Physics Letters B, 723(4-5):280-301.

Abstract

A search has been made for massive resonances decaying into a quark and a vector boson, qW or qZ, or a pair of vector bosons, WW, WZ, or ZZ, where each vector boson decays to hadronic final states. This search is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 inverse femtobarns of proton-proton collisions collected in the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2011 at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. For sufficiently heavy resonances the decay products of each vector boson are merged into a single jet, and the event effectively has a dijet topology. The background from QCD dijet events is reduced using recently developed techniques that resolve jet substructure. A 95% CL lower limit is set on the mass of excited quark resonances decaying into qW (qZ) at 2.38 TeV (2.15 TeV) and upper limits on the cross section for resonances decaying to qW, qZ, WW, WZ, or ZZ final states.
