We present a unified analysis of the two main production processes of vector boson pairs at the CERN LHC, VV-fusion and q (q) over bar annihilation, in a minimal strongly interacting electroweak symmetry breaking sector. Using a unitarized electroweak chiral Lagrangian formalism and modeling the final VLVL strong rescattering effects by a form factor, we describe q (q) over bar annihilation processes in terms of the two chiral parameters that govern elastic VLVL scattering. Depending on the…

Resonances and unitarity in weak boson scattering at the LHC
A crucial test of the Standard Model is the measurement of electroweak gauge-boson scattering. In this paper, we describe a generic parameterization aimed at a realistic simulation of weak-boson
Production cross section estimates for strongly-interacting Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Sector resonances at particle colliders
We are exploring a generic strongly-interacting Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Sector (EWSBS) with the low-energy effectie field theory for the four experimentally known particles ($W_L^\pm$, $Z_L$,
Production of vector resonances at the LHC via WZ-scattering: a unitarized EChL analysis
A bstractIn the present work we study the production of vector resonances at the LHC by means of the vector boson scattering WZ → WZ and explore the sensitivities to these resonances for the expected
Resonant production of Wh and Zh at the LHC
A bstractWe examine the production of Wh and Zh pairs at the LHC in the context of a Strongly Interacting Symmetry Breaking Sector of the Standard Model. Our description is based on a non-linear
Study of WW scattering in the absence of a light Higgs boson using the ATLAS Detector at the LHC
The Thesis investigates the possible case that the Electroweak Symmetry Breaking is not due to a light, weakly interacting Higgs boson, but instead the Symmetry is broken by strongly interacting
Dynamical vector resonances from the EChL in VBS at the LHC: the WW case
Abstract In this work we study the phenomenology of the process pp → W + W − jj at the LHC, in the scenario of the resonant vector boson scattering subprocess W + W − → W + W
Anomalous couplings, resonances and unitarity in vector boson scattering
The Standard Model of particle physics has proved itself as a reliable theory to describe interactions of elementary particles. However, many questions concerning the Higgs sector and the associated
A complete parton level analysis of boson-boson scattering and electroweak symmetry breaking in ℓν + four jets production at the LHC
A complete parton level analysis of lν + four jets production at the LHC is presented, including all processes at order (αEM6), (αEM4αS2) and (αEM2αS4). The infinite Higgs mass scenario, which is
High-energy vector boson scattering after the Higgs boson discovery
Weak vector-boson W,Z scattering at high energy probes the Higgs sector and is most sensitive to any new physics associated with electroweak symmetry breaking. We show that in the presence of the 125
Oblique S and T constraints on electroweak strongly-coupled models with a light Higgs
A bstractUsing a general effective Lagrangian implementing the chiral symmetry breaking SU(2)L ⊗ SU(2)R → SU(2)L+R, we present a one-loop calculation of the oblique S and T parameters within
