The associated production of Z boson and a pair of new quarks at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is studied. The cross sections for both sequential fermions and vector-like fermions are presented. It is found that for sequential fermions the cross sections can reach 1 ~ 102 fb for heavy quark mass mQ from 1000 GeV to 200 GeV. For vector-like quarks, the cross sections are suppressed by mixing parameter sin θL. Focusing on process pp → b'b', we investigate the possibility of detecting the 6l… Expand

Pair Production of the Doubly Charged Leptons Associated with a Gauge Boson γ or Z in e+e− and γγ Collisions at Future Linear Colliders
In this paper, we investigate the production of a pair of doubly charged leptons associated with a gauge boson V(γ or Z) at future linear colliders via e+e− and γγ collisions. The numerical resultsExpand
Probing vector-like top partner from same-sign dilepton events at the LHC
The Standard Model is a successful theory but lack of a mechanism for neutrino mass generation as well as a solution to the naturalness problem. In the models that are proposed to simultaneouslyExpand


Four generations and Higgs physics
In the light of the LHC, we revisit the implications of a fourth generation of chiral matter. We identify a specific ensemble of particle masses and mixings that are in agreement with all currentExpand
Probing electroweak top quark couplings at hadron colliders
We consider QCD tt{gamma} and ttZ production at hadron colliders as a tool to measure the tt{gamma} and ttZ couplings. At the Tevatron it may be possible to perform a first, albeit not very precise,Expand
Quarks and Leptons Beyond the Third Generation
Abstract The possibility of additional quarks and leptons beyond the three generations already established is discussed. The make-up of this Report is (1)  Introduction : the motivations forExpand
Massive Lepton-Pair Production in Hadron-Hadron Collisions at High Energies
On the basis of a parton model studied earlier we consider the production process of large-mass lepton pairs from hadron-hadron inelastic collisions in the limiting region, s→∞, Q2s finite, Q2 and sExpand
Search for heavy charged leptons at hadron colliders.
Four models are considered which contain heavy leptons beyond the three families of the standard model, and in all these models, the heavy neutrino can either be heavier than, or comparable in mass to, the charged lepton leading to the possibility that the chargedLepton is very long lived. Expand
Experimental constraints on fourth generation quark masses
The existing bounds from CDF on the masses of the fourth generation quarks, t{sup '} and b{sup '}, are reexamined. The bound of 256 GeV on the t{sup '} mass assumes that the primary decay of theExpand
Extra quark-lepton generations and precision measurements
Abstract The existence of extra chiral generations with all fermions heavier than M Z is strongly disfavoured by the precision electroweak data. However the data are fitted nicely even by a few extraExpand
Production of heavy leptons from gluon fusion
Abstract We show the production of heavy lepton pairs in pp and p p collisions at multi-TeV energies is dominated by gluon fusion for lepton masses above 100–200 GeV. We also find that the decay ofExpand
Extra families, Higgs spectrum, and oblique corrections
The standard model accommodates, but does not explain, three families of leptons and quarks, while various extensions suggest extra matter families. The oblique corrections from extra chiral familiesExpand
The Littlest Higgs
We present an economical theory of natural electroweak symmetry breaking, generalizing an approach based on deconstruction. This theory is the smallest extension of the Standard Model to date thatExpand
