Sleptons without hadrons

Multilepton searches for electroweakino and slepton pair production at hadron colliders remain some of the best means to test weak-scale supersymmetry. Searches at the CERN Large Hadron Collider,

BSM W W production with a jet veto

We consider the impact on W W production of the unique dimension-six operator coupling gluons to the Higgs field. In order to study this process, we have to appropriately model the effect of a veto

Heavy neutrinos with dynamic jet vetoes: multilepton searches at s=14$$ \sqrt{s}=14 $$, 27, and 100 TeV

A bstractHeavy neutrinos (N) remain one of most promising explanations for the ori-gin of neutrinos’ tiny masses and large mixing angles. In light of broad advances in un-derstanding and modeling of

Motivated by searches for so-called leptonic scalars at the LHC and the recent measurement of the W boson’s mass at the Tevatron, we revisit the phenomenology of the Zee-Babu model for neutrino

Lepton flavor violating dilepton dijet signatures from sterile neutrinos at proton colliders

A bstractIn this article we investigate the prospects of searching for sterile neutrinos in lowscale seesaw scenarios via the lepton flavour violating (but lepton number conserving) dilepton dijet

Probing the Weinberg operator at colliders

Motivated by searches for 0 νββ decay in nuclear experiments and collider probes of lepton number violation at dimension d ≥ 7 , we investigate the sensitivity to the d ¼ 5 Weinberg operator using

Inclusive displaced vertex searches for heavy neutral leptons at the LHC

A bstractThe inclusion of heavy neutral leptons to the Standard Model particle content could provide solutions to many open questions in particle physics and cosmology. The modification of the

Leptogenesis in an extended seesaw model with U(1) B-L symmetry

We have explored an extended seesaw model accommodating a keV sterile neutrino adopting U(1)B-L symmetry. This model provides a natural platform for achieving resonant leptogenesis to account for

Majorana neutrinos in same-sign W±W± scattering at the LHC: Breaking the TeV barrier

We revisit the sensitivity to non-resonant, heavy Majorana neutrinos $N$ in same-sign $W^\pm W^\pm$ scattering at the $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV LHC and its high-luminosity upgrade. As a benchmark scenario,

Sensitivity reach on heavy neutral leptons and τ -neutrino mixing |UτN|2 at the HL-LHC

The model of heavy neutral leptons (HNLs) is one of the well-motivated models beyond the standard model (BSM) from both theoretical and phenomenological point of views. It is an indispensable



Impact of jet veto resummation on slepton searches

A bstractSeveral searches for new physics at the LHC require a fixed number of signal jets, vetoing events with additional jets from QCD radiation. As the probed scale of new physics gets much larger

Factorization and NNLL Resummation for Higgs production with a jet veto

A bstractUsing methods of effective field theory, we derive the first all-order factorization theorem for the Higgs-boson production cross section with a jet veto, imposed by means of a standard

A comprehensive framework for studying W′ and Z′ bosons at hadron colliders with automated jet veto resummation

A bstractThe production of high-mass, color-singlet particles in hadron collisions is universally accompanied by initial state QCD radiation that is predominantly soft with respect to the hard

Explanation of the $WW$ excess at the LHC by jet-veto resummation

The WW production cross section measured at the LHC has been consistently exhibiting a mild excess beyond the SM prediction, in both ATLAS and CMS at both 7-TeV and 8-TeV runs. We provide an

Automated NNLL $$+$$+ NLO resummation for jet-veto cross sections

In electroweak-boson production processes with a jet veto, higher-order corrections are enhanced by logarithms of the veto scale over the invariant mass of the boson system. In this paper, we resum

Drell-Yan process with jet vetoes: breaking of generalized factorization

A bstractResummation of hadron collision cross sections, when the measurement imposes a hierarchy of scales, relies on factorization. Cancellation of Glauber/Coulomb gluons is a necessary condition

The Search for Heavy Majorana Neutrinos

The Majorana nature of neutrinos can be experimentally verified only via lepton-number violating processes involving charged leptons. We study 36 lepton-number violating (LV ) processes from the

Identification of heavy-flavour jets with the CMS detector in pp collisions at 13 TeV

Many measurements and searches for physics beyond the standard model at the LHC rely on the efficient identification of heavy-flavour jets, i.e. jets originating from bottom or charm quarks. In this

Transverse momentum resummation effects in W + W - measurements

The W^+W^- cross section has remained one of the most consistently discrepant channels compared to SM predictions at the LHC, measured by both ATLAS and CMS at 7 and 8 TeV. Developing a better
