Description

Beyond the standard model theories like Extra-Dimensions and Composite Higgs scenarios predict the existence of very heavy resonances compatible with a spin 0 (Radion),spin 1 (W’, Z’) and spin 2 (Graviton) particle with large branching fractions in pairs of standard model bosons and negligible branching fractions to light fermions. We present an overview of searches for new physics containing photons, W, Z or H bosons in the final state, using proton-proton collision data collected with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC. Many analyses use techniques to identify and reconstruct highly boosted final states that are created in these topologies.
