Abstract:
A search for new particles has been conducted using events with two high transverse momentum τ leptons that decay hadronically and at least two energetic jets. The analysis is performed using data from proton-proton collisions at √s =13 TeV, collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2016 and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb−1. The observed data are consistent with standard model expectations. The results are interpreted in the context of two physics models. The first model involves right-handed charged bosons, WR, that decay to heavy right-handed Majorana neutrinos, Nℓ (ℓ = e, μ, τ), arising in a left-right symmetric extension of the standard model. The model considers that Ne and Nμ are too heavy to be detected at the LHC. Assuming that the Nτ mass is half of the WR mass, masses of the WR boson below 3.50 TeV are excluded at 95% confidence level. Exclusion limits are also presented considering different scenarios for the mass ratio between Nτ and WR, as a function of WR mass. In the second model, pair production of third-generation scalar leptoquarks that decay into ττbb is considered, resulting in an obser ... mehr
