Implications at the LHC of BSM interpretations of CDF's ttbar forward-backward asymmetry and Wjj anomaly

TH Theory Conference Room (CERN)

TH Theory Conference Room


Michelangelo Mangano (CERN)

A review of the various BSM models proposed as possible interpretations of the anomalous foward-backward asymmetry in t-tbar production and the mass peak in Wjj final states, reported by CDF, with a discussion of the implications and possible signatures at the LHC.

For more details on the CDF analyses, see:
