Description

Towards the end of Run-1 data taking, an excess in the diboson as well as eejj channel was announced. During the first round of Run-2 data taking, an excess in diphoton channel has been announced. I consider possible explanations of these excesses in two different BSM scenarios. I demonstrate the feasibility of accommodating the diboson and eejj excess in a Left-Right Symmetric Standard Model. For the diphoton excess, I scrutinise a simplified model with scalar resonance coupling to gluons, photons and fermionic dark matter. I illustrate the monojet constraints on such a simplified model scenario and inspect the possibility of reconsiling the diphoton excess with dark matter constraints.
