  • Pair production of new vector-like quarks in $pp$ collisions is considered model independent as it is usually dominated by QCD production. Nonetheless, the presence of a new massive color octet (heavy gluon) in some composite Higgs models may modify the pair production rate of vector-like quarks. This scenario is considered and the possible differences between the usual QCD production and the production mediated via heavy gluons is studied. The sensitivity to these differences in the LHC (run-1… CONTINUE READING
