Description

We study same-charge dilepton events in the CDF Run II data sample using up to 5/fb of integrated luminosity collected at the Fermilab Tevatron. These events are rare in the standard model and could indicate new physics processes such as chargino-neutralino production in supersymmetric models. We adopt a model-independent approach and compare the yields and kinematics of events containing an electron or muon and another charged lepton (including taus) to the standard model.
