Oral presentation Beyond the Standard Model Beyond the Standard Model


Dr. Timothy Andeen (Columbia University)


Various extensions of the Standard Model predict the existence of new types of quarks. We report on several search channels such as vector-like quarks decaying to a Higgs boson and a top quark or to a W boson and a b quark. The talk presents results from searches for new resonances decaying to a top-antitop pair and a top-antibottom pair, including the use of boosted top quark reconstruction techniques. These searches use the data sample recorded in 2012 at sqrt(s)=8 TeV centre-of-mass energy by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC.
