Description

We present results of searches for heavy BSM resonances decaying to pairs of SM bosons, including W's, Z's, and h's at sqrt(s)=8 TeV. Several new physics scenarios predict the existence of BSM resonances that decay with high branching ratio to pairs of bosons, including extra dimensions and composite Higgs models. Several final states are consider including WW, WZ, ZZ, and hh. Jet grooming techniques are used to reconstruct merged dijet resonances and increase the acceptance for TeV resonances.
