Hugo Serodio (Korea University)
Top partners are a fundamental piece in most of the composite Higgs models, as their presence is essential to generate the observed Higgs mass. In this talk I will use the minimal composite Higgs model, based on the coset group SO(5)/SO(4), as a framework to study some general properties of the top partners.
María Eugenia CABRERA CATALAN (Universidade de Sao Paulo)
Theories considering extra dimensions predict the existence of color octect gause boson, which decay could be through flavor changing neutral current (FCNC) channels. These scenarios are normally not considered by LHC searches, although they could be quite important in order to study particular models. In this talk I will comment about the possibility of measuring a color octect gauge...
197. Profiling Z' bosons using charge asymmetry in top pair production with the lepton-plus-jets final state at the LHC ?
Declan Millar (Southampton Uni)
We study the sensitivity of top pair production and six-fermion decay at the LHC to the presence and nature of an underlying Z' boson, accounting for full tree-level Standard Model interference, with all intermediate particles allowed off-shell. We concentrate on the lepton-plus-jets final state and simulate experimental considerations, including kinematic requirements and top quark pair...
Juan Herrero Garcia (KTH, Stockholm)
We study lepton flavor violating Higgs decays in the light of the recent enhancement in the τμ channel, which should be confirmed/excluded soon at the second run of the LHC. In the first part of the talk, I will discuss tree-level and loop-level realizations that can accommodate the excess starting from an EFT analysis, while being at the same time compatible with other low-energy constraints....
Xabier Marcano (IFT, UAM-CSIC)
Low scale seesaw models can accommodate neutrino oscillations data and at the same time allow for interactions that may contribute to charged Lepton Flavor Violation processes, which are a good place to look for new physics. We study the predictions for different cLFV observables within this kind of models, looking for large ratios induced by heavy neutrinos whose masses could be in the range...
