Parallel session talk Beyond the Standard Model Beyond the Standard Model


Angela Maria Burger (Oklahoma State University (US))


Many theories beyond the Standard Model predict new phenomena, such as heavy vectors or scalar, and vector-like quarks, in final states containing bottom or top quarks. Such final states offer great potential to reduce the Standard Model background, although with significant challenges in reconstructing and identifying the decay products and modelling the remaining background. The recent 13 TeV pp results, along with the associated improvements in identification techniques, will be reported.
