DBL (Dibosons, Multileptons and Extra Dimensions) Subgroup

The DBL group searches for new physics with two or more electroweak bosons or multileptons. Main topics of interest include new heavy gauge bosons decaying to diboson, heavy neutrinos, technicolor, Randall-Sundrum Gravitons, inclusive same-sign dilepton, tri-/four-lepton inclusive searches, together with interpretations for relevant new physics models. We also provide a forum for discussing models of extra dimensions, e.g. RS models predicting TeV-scale gravitons.
