Talk 03. Beyond the Standard Model Beyond the Standard Model

Speaker

Ben Kilminster (Univ. Zürich)

Description

Leptoquarks are hypothetical color-triplet bosons, which carry both baryon and lepton quantum numbers and have fractional electric charge. They are predicted by many extensions of the standard model, such as theories invoking grand unification, technicolor, or compositeness. Third-generation scalar LQs have recently received considerable theoretical interest, as their existence can explain the anomaly in the B → Dτν and B → D ∗ τν decay rates reported by the BaBar, Belle, and LHCb Collaborations. This talk presents latest results from searches for leptoquarks in CMS using the full Run-II data-set collected at the LHC.
