Search for heavy BSM particles coupling to third generation quarks at CMS

Parallel session talk Searches for New Physics T10: Searches for New Physics


Anna Benecke (UCLouvain)


We present results from searches for resonances with enhanced couplings to third generation quarks, based on proton-proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV recorded by CMS. The signatures include single and pair production of vector-like quarks and heavy resonances decaying to third generation quarks. A wide range of final states, from multi-leptonic to entirely hadronic is covered. Jet substructure techniques are employed to identify highly-boosted heavy SM particles in their hadronic decay modes.
