Search for new physics in events with same-sign dileptons and b jets in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV (SUS-12-029)

Abstract

A search for new physics is performed using events with isolated same-sign leptons and at least two b-quark jets in the final state. Results are based on a sample of proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV collected with the CMS detector and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 10.5 fb-1. No excess above the standard model background is observed. Upper limits are set on the number of events from non-standard-model sources and are used to constrain a number of new physics models. Information on acceptance and efficiencies is also provided so that the results can be used to confront an even broader class of new physics models.

Further information

This analysis is documented in SUS-12-029.

This analysis is planned to be submitted to JHEP.

Table Abbreviated Caption
table1.png A summary of the combination of results for this search. For each signal region (SR), we show its most distinguishing kinematic requirements, the prediction for the three background (BG) components as well as the total, and the observed number of events. Note that the count of the number of jets on the first line of the table includes both tagged and untagged jets.
