Talk Particle Physics Searches 1.6 Theory

Speaker

David Yu (Brown University (US))

Description

This talk presents results from the CMS experiment on searches for dark matter mediator particles. The searches target new bosons decaying into dijet final states. Techniques for studying low-mass resonances below the typical threshold for conventional dijet resonance searches are emphasized, including the use of data scouting, online bottom quark tagging, and boosted mediator production due to initial state radiation.
