On the Compatibility of the Diboson Excess with a gg -Initiated Composite Sector
We propose that recent results by ATLAS and CMS searching for heavy resonances decaying into bosons could be a first hint of a new sector of pure gauge confining physics, possibly linked to the
Totally asymptotically free trinification
A bstractMotivated by new ideas about the Higgs mass naturalness problem, we present realistic TeV-scale extensions of the Standard Model, into the gauge group SU(3)L ⊗ SU(3)R ⊗ SU(3)c, such that all
The Diboson Excess: Experimental Situation and Classification of Explanations; A Les Houches Pre-Proceeding
We examine the `diboson' excess at $\sim 2$ TeV seen by the LHC experiments in various channels. We provide a comparison of the excess significances as a function of the mass of the tentative
ATLAS diboson excess from low scale supersymmetry breaking
A bstractWe provide an interpretation of the recent ATLAS diboson excess in terms of a class of supersymmetric models in which the scale of supersymmetry (SUSY) breaking is in the few TeV range. The
The ATLAS diboson resonance in non-supersymmetric SO(10)
A bstractSO(10) grand unification accommodates intermediate gauge symmetries with which gauge coupling unification can be realized without supersymmetry. In this paper, we discuss the possibility
Understanding diboson anomalies
We conduct a model-independent effective theory analysis of hypercharged fields with various spin structures towards understanding the diboson excess found in LHC run I, as well as possible future
Diboson resonance as a portal to hidden strong dynamics
A bstractWe propose a new explanation for excess events observed in the search for a high-mass resonance decaying into dibosons by the ATLAS experiment. The resonance is identified as a composite
ATLAS diboson excess from Stueckelberg mechanism
A bstractWe discuss the diboson excess seen by the ATLAS collaboration around 2 TeV in the LHC run I at s=8$$ \sqrt{s}=8 $$ TeV. We explore the possibility that such an excess can arise from a Z′
A 2TeV WR, supersymmetry, and the Higgs mass
A bstractA recent ATLAS search for diboson resonances and a CMS search for eejj resonances which both show excesses with significance around 3σ have generated interest in SU(2)R gauge extensions of
Effective theory for neutral resonances and a statistical dissection of the ATLAS diboson excess
A bstractWe classify the complete set of dimension-5 operators relevant for the resonant production of a singlet of spin 0 or 2 linearly coupled to the Standard Model (SM). We compute the decay width


The general method for constructing invariant phenomenological Lagrangians is described. The fields are assumed to transform according to (nonlinear) realizations of an internal symmetry group, given
The automated computation of tree-level and next-to-leading order differential cross sections, and their matching to parton shower simulations
A bstractWe discuss the theoretical bases that underpin the automation of the computations of tree-level and next-to-leading order cross sections, of their matching to parton shower simulations, and
Towards the ultimate SM fit to close in on Higgs physics
A bstractWith the discovery of the Higgs at the LHC, experiments have finally addressed all aspects of the Standard Model (SM). At this stage, it is important to understand which windows for beyond
Electroweak limits on general new vector bosons
We study extensions of the Standard Model with general new vector bosons. The full Standard Model gauge symmetry is used to classify the extra vectors and constrain their couplings. We derive the
Flavor and CP invariant composite Higgs models
A bstractThe flavor protection in composite Higgs models with partial compositeness is known to be insufficient. We explore the possibility to alleviate the tension with CP odd observables by
Higgs windows to new physics through d = 6 operators: constraints and one-loop anomalous dimensions
A bstractThe leading contributions from heavy new physics to Higgs processes can be captured in a model-independent way by dimension-six operators in an effective Lagrangian approach. We present a
Combining searches of Z′ and W′ bosons
A bstractWe study in a model-independent way new neutral and charged vector bosons that could give observable signals with leptonic final states at the LHC. We show, in particular, that a charged
Associate Higgs and gauge boson production at hadron colliders in a model with vector resonances
Motivated by new models of dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking that predict a light composite Higgs boson, we build an effective Lagrangian which describes the standard model (with a light Higgs)
High-precision QCD at hadron colliders: Electroweak gauge boson rapidity distributions at next-to-next-to leading order
We compute the rapidity distributions of W and Z bosons produced at the Tevatron and the LHC through next-to-next-to leading order in QCD. Our results demonstrate remarkable stability with respect to
