Searches for vector-like quarks with the ATLAS Detector

26 Jul 2021, 17:45


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


Mesut Unal (Austin)


Vector like quarks appear in many theories beyond the Standard Model as a way to cancel the mass divergence for the Higgs boson. The talk will focus on the most recent results using 13 TeV pp collision data collected by the ATLAS detector. This presentation will address the analysis techniques, in particular the selection criteria, the background modeling and the related experimental uncertainties. The results and the complementarity of the various searches, along with the phenomenological implications, will be discussed.
