Description

Many new physics models beyond the Standard Model produce same-sign dilepton pairs. Supersymmetry, universal etra dimentions, left-right symmetry, Higgs triplets and Little Higgs are examples of such new models. Same-sign dilepton pairs are clean signature in the collisions of two protons because not many Standard Model process to produce such final states exist. This makes it an ideal place to look for new physics. Using 20 fb-1 of 8 TeV data, we set limits on new physics cross sections, especially on doubly-charged Higgs production.
