Addressing the R-D(*) anomalies with an S-1 leptoquark from SO(10) grand unification

Aydemir, Ufuk

Motivated by the R-D(*) anomalies, we investigate an SO(10) grand unification scenario where a charge -1/3 scalar leptoquark (S-1) remains as the only new physics candidate at the TeV scale. This leptoquark along with the Standard Model (SM) Higgs doublet originates from the same ten-dimensional real scalar multiplet in the SO(10) grand unification framework taking its mass close to the electroweak scale. We explicitly show how the gauge coupling unification is achieved with only one intermediate symmetrybreaking scale at which the Pati-Salam gauge group is broken into the SM group. We investigate the phenomenological implications of our scenario and show that an S-1 with a specific Yukawa texture can explain the R-D(*) anomalies. We perform a multiparameter scan considering the relevant flavor constraints on R-D(*), F-L(D*), P-tau(D*) and R-K(*)(vv) as well as the constraint coming from the Z -> tau tau decay and the latest Dr resonance search data at the LHC. Our analysis shows that a single leptoquark solution to the observed R-D(*) anomalies with S-1 is still a viable solution.


Search for Neutral Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model Higgs Bosons Decaying to Tau Pairs in pp Collisions at root s=7 TeV
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (2011-06-01)
A search for neutral minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) Higgs bosons in pp collisions at the LHC at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV is presented. The results are based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb(-1) recorded by the CMS experiment. The search uses decays of the Higgs bosons to tau pairs. No excess is observed in the tau-pair invariant-mass spectrum. The resulting upper limits on the Higgs boson production cross section times branching fraction to tau pairs,...
Measurement of the W charge asymmetry in the W -> mu nu decay mode in pp collisions at root s=7 TeV with the ATLAS detector
Aad, G.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-27)
This Letter reports a measurement of the muon charge asymmetry from W bosons produced in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. The asymmetry is measured in the W -> mu nu decay mode as a function of the muon pseudorapidity using a data sample corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 31 pb(-1). The results are compared to predictions based on next-to-leading order calculations with various parton distribution functions. This measurement pr...
Measurement of the azimuthal ordering of charged hadrons with the ATLAS detector
Aad, G.; et. al. (2012-09-14)
This paper presents a study of the possible ordering of charged hadrons in the azimuthal angle relative to the beam axis in high-energy proton-proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). A spectral analysis of correlations between longitudinal and transverse components of the momentum of the charged hadrons, driven by the search for phenomena related to the structure of the QCD field, is performed. Data were recorded with the ATLAS detector at center-of-mass energies of root s = 900 GeV and root s...
Predicting the shear strength of reinforced concrete beams using artificial neural networks
Mansour, MY; Dicleli, Murat; Lee, JY; Zhang, J (Elsevier BV, 2004-05-01)
The application of artificial neural networks (ANNs) to predict the ultimate shear strengths of reinforced concrete (RC) beams with transverse reinforcements is investigated in this paper. An ANN model is built, trained and tested using the available test data of 176 RC beams collected from the technical literature. The data used in the ANN model are arranged in a format of nine input parameters that cover the cylinder concrete compressive strength, yield strength of the longitudinal and transverse reinforc...
Search for pair-produced vectorlike B quarks in proton-proton collisions at root s=8 TeV
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2016-06-01)
A search for the production of a heavy B quark, having electric charge -1/3 and vector couplings to W, Z, and H bosons, is carried out using proton-proton collision data recorded at the CERN LHC by the CMS experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb(-1). The B quark is assumed to be pair produced and to decay in one of three ways: to tW, bZ, or bH. The search is carried out in final states with one, two, and more than two charged leptons, as well as in fully hadronic final states. Each ...
