Search for new physics in final states with a lepton and missing transverse energy in pp collisions at the LHC


CMS Collaboration; Chatrchyan, S; Khachatryan, V; Sirunyan, A M; et al; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P (2013). Search for new physics in final states with a lepton and missing transverse energy in pp collisions at the LHC. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 87(7):072005.

Abstract

This Letter describes the search for an enhanced production rate of events with a charged lepton and a neutrino in high-energy pp collisions at the LHC. The analysis uses data collected with the CMS detector, with an integrated luminosity of 5.0  fb−1 at s√=7  TeV, and a further 3.7  fb−1 at s√=8  TeV. No evidence is found for an excess. The results are interpreted in terms of limits on a heavy charged gauge boson (W′) in the sequential standard model, a split universal extra dimension model, and contact interactions in the helicity-nonconserving model. For the last, values of the binding energy below 10.5 (8.8) TeV in the electron (muon) channel are excluded at a 95% confidence level. Interpreting the ℓν final state in terms of a heavy W′ with standard model couplings, masses below 2.90 TeV are excluded.
