Reconstructing singly produced top partners in decays to Wb.

Gutierrez, Nicolas and Ferrando, James and Kar, Deepak and Spannowsky, Michael (2014) 'Reconstructing singly produced top partners in decays to Wb.', Physical review D., 90 (7). 075009.


Fermionic top partners are a feature of many models of physics beyond the standard model. We propose a search strategy for single production of top partners focusing specifically on the dominant decay to Wb . The enormous background can be reduced by exploiting jet substructure to suppress top-pair production and by requiring a forward jet. This simple strategy is shown to produce a sensitive search for single top-partner production, in the context of composite Higgs models, that has competitive mass reach with existing experimental searches for top-partner-pair production at the 8 TeV LHC.
