Busca por Ressonâncias de Grávitons em Modelos com Dimensões Extras no LHC
A search for new exotic particles decaying to VZ was performed, where V is either a W or a Z boson decaying hadronically into two overlapping jets and the Z decays into a pair of electrons or muons.Expand
Testing the technicolor interpretation of the CDF dijet excess at the 8-TeV LHC
Under the assumption that the dijet excess seen by the CDF Collaboration near 150 Gev in Wjj production is due to the lightest technipion of the low-scale technicolor process $$\rho_T \rightarrow WExpand

Low-scale technicolor at the Tevatron
Abstract In multiscale models of walking technicolor, relatively light color-singlet technipions are produced in q q annihilation in association with longitudinal W and Z bosons and with each other.Expand
Search for techniparticles in e+jets events at D0.

Search for technicolor particles produced in association with a W Boson at CDF.
The observed number of events and the invariant mass distributions are consistent with the standard model background expectations, and a region at 95% confidence level in the rho {T}-pi{T} mass plane is excluded. Expand
Finding low-scale technicolor at hadron colliders
In multiscale and topcolor-assisted models of walking technicolor, relatively light spin-one technihadrons ρT and ωT exist and are expected to decay as ρT → W πT, ZπT and ωT → γπT. For MρT ≃ 200GeVExpand
