Parallel adaptive Monte Carlo integration with the event generator WHIZARD

We describe a new parallel approach to the evaluation of phase space for Monte-Carlo event generation, implemented within the framework of the Whizard package. The program realizes a twofold self-adaptive multi-channel parameterization of phase space and makes use of the standard OpenMP and MPI protocols for parallelization. The modern MPI3 feature of asynchronous communication...

The fate of the littlest Higgs model with T -parity under 13 TeV LHC data

Abstract We exploit all LHC available Run 2 data at center-of-mass energies of 8 and 13 TeV for searches for physics beyond the Standard Model. We scrutinize the allowed parameter space of Little Higgs models with the concrete symmetry of T -parity by providing comprehensive analyses of all relevant production channels of heavy vectors, top partners, heavy quarks and heavy...

Scattering of W and Z bosons at high-energy lepton colliders

We present a new study of quasi-elastic W and Z scattering processes in high-energy \(e^+e^-\) collisions, based on and extrapolating the low-energy effective theory which extends the standard model with a \(125\;\text {GeV}\) Higgs boson. We parameterize deviations in the low-energy range in terms of the dimension-eight operators that arise in the effective theory. Smoothly...

Precise predictions for same-sign W-boson scattering at the LHC

Vector-boson scattering processes are of great importance for the current run-II and future runs of the Large Hadron Collider. The presence of triple and quartic gauge couplings in the process gives access to the gauge sector of the Standard Model (SM) and possible new-physics contributions there. To test any new-physics hypothesis, sound knowledge of the SM contributions is...

Top Partner Discovery in the T → tZ channel at the LHC

In this paper we study the discovery potential of the LHC run II for heavy vector-like top quarks in the decay channel to a top and a Z boson. Despite the usually smaller branching ratio compared to charged-current decays, this channel is rather clean and allows for a complete mass reconstruction of the heavy top. The latter is achieved in the leptonic decay channel of the Z...

Littlest Higgs with T-parity: status and prospects

The Littlest Higgs model with T-parity is providing an attractive solution to the fine-tuning problem. This solution is only entirely natural if its intrinsic symmetry breaking scale f is relatively close to the electroweak scale. We examine the constraints using the latest results from the 8 TeV run at the LHC. Both direct searches and Higgs precision physics are taken into...

Extracting gluino endpoints with event topology patterns

In this paper we study the gluino dijet mass edge measurement at the LHC in a realistic situation including both SUSY and combinatorial backgrounds together with effects of initial and final state radiation as well as a finite detector resolution. Three benchmark scenarios are examined in which the dominant SUSY production process and also the decay modes are different. Several...

An analytic initial-state parton shower

We present a new algorithm for an analytic parton shower. While the algorithm for the final-state shower has been known in the literature, the construction of an initialstate shower along these lines is new. The aim is to have a parton shower algorithm for which the full analytic form of the probability distribution for all branchings is known. For these parton shower algorithms...
