* Candidate signal event display: Recorded data pp collision at √s = 7 TeV, run 163759, event 41507939 featuring a central dimuon system with invariant mass 90.2 GeV and a forwardbackward dijet system with invariant mass 1.4 TeV. The first display shows a 3D view of the event, while the second one shows a rφ display, where the trasverse momentum balance of the 2μ + 2jets system is visible.

Figure 4: The p
_{T}^{j1} (left) and p
_{T}^{j2} (right) distributions after applying the Zμμ selection and the TT
jet tagging requirement TJ1. The expected contributions from the signal and background processes are evaluated from simulation. The bottom panels show the ratio of data over the expected contribution of the signal plus background. The region between the two lines with the labels JES Up and JES Down shows the 1 σ uncertainty of the simulation prediction due to the jet energy scale uncertainty. The data points are shown with the statistical uncertainties.

Figure 10: The m

The expected contributions from the dominant DY μμjj background and the EW μμjj signal processes are evaluated from a fit, while the contributions from the small tt and diboson backgrounds are estimated from simulation.The solid line with the label “EW only” shows the m
_{j1j2} distribution for the signal alone. The bottom panel shows the ratio of data over the expected contribution of the signal plus background. The region between two lines, with the labels JES Up and JES Down, shows the 1 σ uncertainty due to the jet energy scale uncertainty. The data points are shown with the statistical uncertainties.

The expected contributions from the signal and background processes are evaluated from simulation. The solid line with the label “EW only” shows the BDT output distribution for the signal alone. The bottom panels show the ratio of data over the expected contribution of the signal plus background.

The expected contributions from the dominant DY lljj background and the EW lljj signal processes are evaluated from the fit. The contributions from the small tt and diboson backgrounds are estimated from simulation. The solid line with the label “EW only” shows the BDT output distribution for the signal alone. The bottom panels show the significance observed in data (histogram) and expected from simulation (solid purple line). The dashed blue line shows the background modeling uncertainty. The calculation of the significance and background modeling uncertainty are explained in the text. The data points are shown with the statistical uncertainties.
