Title: Non-standard heavy vectors at the LHC

 

Abstract:

Searching for heavy vector bosons is one of the challenging objectives of the LHC: I will discuss two scenarios which have not been investigated yet by the experimental  collaborations. The first scenario consists in searching for Z’ bosons, predicted by U(1) GUT-inspired models, by investigating its possible BSM decays, namely supersymmetric decays, leading to resonant final states with chargedleptons and missing energy. Particular care will be taken about models wherein Z' bosons are leptophobic. Afterwards, I will present a recent work, carried out in the framework of the so-called 331 model, which predicts doubly-charged vectors and yields final states with two same-sign lepton pairs, possibly accompanied by two jets, which can be easily separated from the Standard Model backgrounds.
