Description

Unitarization models describe phenomenologically the high energy behaviour of a strongly interacting symmetry breaking sector. Predictions of some unitarized models in vector boson scattering at LHC with sqrt(s) = 14 TeV are studied and compared with analogous studies in Equivalent Vector Boson Approximation and previous results for the benchmark no-Higgs scenario. To perform such studies, unitarized model amplitudes have been implemented in the PHANTOM Monte Carlo in a complete calculation with six fermions in the final state. In view of the annnouncement that in 2012 the LHC will run at 8 TeV, the possibility of detecting signals of unitarized models, at 7, 8 and 10 TeV center of mass energy have been studied. Our results indicate that at 8 TeV some of the scenarios with TeV scale resonances are likely to be identified while models with no resonances or with very heavy ones will be inaccessible, unless the available luminosity will be much higher than expected.
