  • A search is presented for the production of vector-like quark pairs, TT or YY, with electric charge of 2/3 (T) or −4/3 (Y), in proton-proton collisions at √ s = 13 TeV. The data were collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2016 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.8 fb−1. The T and Y quarks are assumed to decay exclusively to a W boson and a b quark. The search is based on events with a single isolated electron or muon, large missing transverse momentum, and at least four jets… CONTINUE READING
