Searching for extra-SUSY signals at LHC

  • Lorenzo Menici
Conference paper


The presence of a heavy neutral gauge bosons Z′, besides the Z 0, is foreseen in various non-SUSY models. There are no reliable theoretical predictions, however, of its mass scale. Current lower limits from LEP and the Tevatron on the Z′ mass [1] are 600–900GeV, depending on the model. LHC is going to be the first opportunity to search for Z′ bosons in a mass range significantly larger than 1TeV: here we review a work on the process Z′ → μ + μ , for a work concerning Z′ → ee we suggest the reading of [2].
