Triboson Resonances at the LHC

Speaker: Jack Collins, Maryland/JHU

When: October 19, 2016 (Wed), 03:30PM to 04:30PM (add to my calendar)
Location: PRB 565

This event is part of the HET Seminar Series.

I will discuss LHC signatures of final states involving three boosted vector bosons, which could emerge as a signature of new elementary gauge bosons or composite vector resonances in combination with an extended scalar sector. Boosted vector bosons present a new and unique challenge and opportunity in the 13 TeV era, the potential for which has yet to be fully explored. In this talk I will focus on triboson signatures in existing searches for diboson resonances, with the aim to motivate future, more dedicated searches.
