Slepton pair production at the LHC in NLO+NLL with resummation-improved parton densities

Abstract Novel PDFs taking into account resummation-improved matrix elements, albeit only in the fit of a reduced data set, allow for consistent NLO+NLL calculations of slepton pair production at the LHC. We apply a factorisation method to this process that minimises the effect of the data set reduction, avoids the problem of outlier replicas in the NNPDF method for PDF...

Forward-backward asymmetry as a discovery tool for Z′ bosons at the LHC

The Forward-Backward Asymmetry (AFB) in Z′ physics is commonly only perceived as the observable which possibly allows one to interpret a Z′ signal appearing in the Drell-Yan channel by distinguishing different models of such (heavy) spin-1 bosons. In this paper, we revisit this issue, showing that the absence of any di-lepton rapidity cut, which is commonly used in the literature...

Phenomenology of minimal Z’ models: from the LHC to the GUT scale

We consider a class of minimal abelian extensions of the Standard Model with an extra neutral gauge boson Z′ at the TeV scale. In these scenarios an extended scalar sector and heavy right-handed neutrinos are naturally envisaged. We present some of their striking signatures at the Large Hadron Collider, the most interesting arising from a Z′ decaying to heavy neutrino pairs as...
