  • A bstractAn inclusive search for anomalous production of two prompt, isolated leptons with the same electric charge is presented. The search is performed in a data sample corresponding to 4.7 fb−1 of integrated luminosity collected in 2011 at $ \sqrt{s}=7\;\mathrm{TeV} $ with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Pairs of leptons (e±e±, e±μ±, and μ±μ±) with large transverse momentum are selected, and the dilepton invariant mass distribution is examined for any deviation from the Standard Model… CONTINUE READING
