Introduction

2

Introduction

  • Extra Dimensions: Solution to problems in Particle physics, favorite since 1990s

  • Warped extra dimensions (RS) has been especially popular

  • Current favourite model building in warped space

    • Gauge hierarchy problem

    • Unification

    • Fermion masses

    • Cosmology,…

Model specifics

3

Model Specifics

  • Basic ingredients of model building:

    • Randall-Sundrum ED for gauge hierarchy

    • Extended EW gauge symmetry

    • Original model: RS + SO(10) (Servant&Agashe,hep-ph/0411254), a heavy bR (~1.5 TeV) along with a Dark Matter Candidate

    • Revised models: embed into SU(2)LxSU(2)RxU(1) (Contino, et al.,hep-ph/0612048)

      • Additional custodial symmetry in SU(2)LxSU(2)R to protect EW precision observables (Z→bb) from new contributions

    • Light degenerate KK fermions (“custodians”): with no zero modes

      bR,L,Q = 2/3, -1/3, 5/3

Strategy

4

Strategy

  • Investigate feasibility of searching for the KK quarks and related signatures through multi-W events

    • Heavy quark searches at LHC is has become in general a hot topic (see Gokhan Unel’s talk)

    • Uncommon in SUSY searches for example

    • Try to stay as inclusive as possible

    • Preprint: hep-ph/0701158

Multi-W events at the LHC

Signature: 4W + 2b-jets

MKU


Production

5

Production

  • Dominated by pair production (focus in bR – others basically the same, except enhanced EWK coupling)

  • Main production mechanism is from strong interactions. EWK much smaller.

Details of b r decay

6

Details of bR Decay

  • Decay channels: tW, bZ, bH

  • bRbR→tWtW→ 4W + 2b

  • If H heavy enough, H→WW can give same signature (not simulated here)

  • q5/3 are also produced: decay entirely via tW

  • Simulate only tW decay modes of bR (Q=-1/3)

  • Scale up by 2(1+B2)/B2 to get total

    rate including q5/3

  • Studying cases with benchmark

    Higgs masses (300, 115 GeV)

Multi w backgrounds

7

Multi-W Backgrounds

  • Generic form:

    • n×W + m×[b-jets] + k× [X]

  • Candidate backgrounds: any associated t and/or W production

    • tt

    • ttH, esp. if M(q)>1 TeV with H->WW (similarly tt+n×W)

    • tttt, negligible by order of 4 below tt

  • Here we concentrate on ttbar as the dominating background source

Multi-W Signature

Multi-W events at the LHC

  • At bR mass of 500 GeV in 10fb-1 of data:

    • 4000 tW

    • 700 bH, H→WW (Higgs mass 300 GeV)

  • At q5/3 mass of 500 GeV:

    • 22000 tW

MKU


Feasibility study

9

Feasibility Study

  • Count Ws in leptonic and hadronic decays

  • Purely generator-based

    • Calchep 2.4.3 + Pythia 6.4.01 (CTEQ6L)

  • Hadronic jets:

    • Use charged+neutrals (non-ν) within |η|<4.9

    • Seed with pT>1 GeV

    • Softer tracks added if within ΔR<0.4 of jet centroid

  • b-jets: hadronic jet closest to generated b

  • Background sample mostly tt (Toprex 4.11 + Pythia 6.4.03), also some ttH (Pythia)

Trigger requirements

10

“Trigger” Requirements

  • Follow standard W leptonic trigger:

    • e or μ, pT > 25 GeV in |η|<2.4

    • Missing ET > 20 GeV

S vs b after trigger

11

S vs B after trigger

  • pT distributions of decay products (all normalized to unit area)

  • Will require W pT > 150 GeV

S vs b after trigger1

12

S vs B after trigger

  • Require jet pT>20 GeV

  • 4 hadronic W’s?

  • Probably semileptonic quark decays

S vs b after trigger2

13

S vs B after trigger

  • Require ΣET>800 GeV, for bR mass of 500 GeV

Counting hadronic ws

14

Counting hadronic Ws

  • Reconstruct W→jj:

    • Loop over dijet pairs (no leptons)

    • Add 4-vectors, assuming zero jet mass

Distinguishing multi w signal

15

Distinguishing Multi-W Signal

  • One W is already identified by lepton

  • Typical SM events have two W’s (or Z’s)

  • Eliminate one hadronic W:

    • When looping over dijets, start from the highest-energy jet

    • If we find another jet which can make a W mass (70-90 GeV), start plotting with next pair

    • Method has been tested with W+jets sample to make sure it doesn’t sculpt background distribution

  • Remaining W’s are mostly from non-SM sources

Result in 1 leptonic w

Result in 1 leptonic W

  • Final comparison, normalized to 10 fb-1

Number of leptonic decays

17

Number of Leptonic Decays

  • 4 leptons + 2 b’s: suggested as a “golden discovery channel”, although the event yield is extremely low,

    • but can we distinguish it from SUSY?

  • However, requiring 2 leptons seems more reasonable to do

Dilepton events

18

Dilepton Events

  • Requiring two leptons mostly eliminates tt background without having to eliminate a hadronic W

  • This work is in progress

Multi-W events at the LHC

Same-sign

Opposite-sign

MKU


Further on q 5 3

19

Further on q5/3

  • Identifying this would be a telltale indication for this model

  • Unfortunately only leptons have reliable charge information, not jets

  • Possible analysis:

    • Select same-sign dilepton events

    • Exclusively reconstruct bR on other side (similar to ATALS TDR analysis of 4th gen quarks)

  • Looking into this right now

Conclusion outlook

20

Conclusion & Outlook

  • Present analysis:

    • Feasibility study promising

    • Need more realistic simulation, first steps in ATLAS’s Atlfast

    • Relating size of W peak to cross section is nontrivial

    • Could suppress SM backgrounds further by tightening trigger requirements and selecting dileptons

  • Multi-W/Z events are generically interesting

    • Recent work on identification using single-jet mass (e.g., Skiba&Tucker-Smith, hep-ph/0701247)

    • Also Butterworth, et al., for WW scattering identification

  • Further directions:

    • q5/3 analysis: the smoking gun

    • Sensitivity vs mass of bR, Higgs

    • Exotic, long-lived quarks – CHAMP signatures
