Resonant Slepton Production at Hadron Colliders in R-parity Violating Models


Single s-channel production of sleptons, such as tilde tau's and/or tilde nutau, with their subsequent decay into purely leptonic or dijet final states is possible in hadronic collisions via R-parity violating couplings. We examine the impact of slepton production on bump searches in both the Drell-Yan and dijet channels and examine whether the lepton charge asymmetry in the ell nu channel provides for additional search sensitivity. As a consequence, search reaches in the slepton mass-R-parity violating coupling plane are obtained for both the Tevatron and LHC. The possibility of using the leptonic angular distributions and the lepton charge asymmetry to distinguish slepton resonances from new gauge bosons is also analyzed.

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file most likely created from LaTeX source which used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification (fonts will appear bitmapped, jagged), though the type will be legible at higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the use Type 3 fonts in the original source file, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
