Description

I will report the physics potential for a search for a new, non-Standard Model gauge boson, Z’, in its decay to the dimuon final state in Run 2 of the Large Hadron Collider, using the ATLAS detector. Detection of high transverse momentum muons is crucial for the search. A first look at the performance of high transverse momentum muons using early Run 2 data at 13 TeV center-of-mass energy will be reported.
