Constraints on neutrino non-standard interactions from LHC data with large missing transverse momentum


The possible non-standard interactions (NSIs) of neutrinos with matter plays important role in the global determination of neutrino properties. In our study we select various data sets from LHC measurements at 13 TeV with integrated luminosities of 35 ∼ 139 fb1, including production of a single jet, photon, W/Z boson, or charged lepton accompanied with large missing transverse momentum. We derive constraints on neutral-current NSIs with quarks imposed by different data sets in a framework of either effective operators or simplified Z′ models. We use theoretical predictions of productions induced by NSIs at next-to-leading order in QCD matched with parton showering which stabilize the theory predictions and result in more robust constraints. In a simplified Z′ model we obtain a 95% CLs upper limit on the conventional NSI strength ϵ of 0.042 and 0.0028 for a Z′ mass of 0.2 and 2 TeV respectively. We also discuss possible improvements from future runs of LHC with higher luminosities.
