Description

The search for $pp \rightarrow Vjj$ with a dijet resonance is motivated by a number of theories going beyond the Standard Model. The Higgs boson discovery by ATLAS and CMS imposes strong constraints on theories beyond the Standard Model. Minimal Walking Technicolor (MWT) proposes a dynamical approach to explain the electroweak symmetry breaking and is of interest as it includes a light composite Higgs-like scalar particle. It also predicts resonant $VH$ associated production coming from a mixture of vector and axial-vector mesons. This presentation will focus on the latest results in the search for such resonances in the 3 leptonic channels of $Vbb$ using the data collected from 8 TeV $pp$ collisions with the ATLAS detector with interpretation in terms of the MWT model.
