Event Details

Experiments at the LHC have been pushing the limits of the Standard Model of Particle Physics to higher and higher energies over the last seven years. New particles as heavy as 10 TeV may soon be produced at the LHC, and could show up as narrow resonances in various final states. I will discuss two theories for physics beyond the Standard Model. One of them is an extension of the QCD gauge group, and includes a heavy spin-1 particle that may decay into heavy coloroctet scalars associated with the breaking of the gauge symmetry. In the other theory, an ultraheavy spin-0 particle undergoes cascade decays via a vectorlike quark, leading to a 4-jet resonance.
