|Title:||Search for contact interactions in mu(+)mu(-) events in pp collisions at root s = 7 TeV||Authors:||Chatrchyan, S.
Sirunyan, A. M.
|Issue Date:||2013||Publisher:||American Physical Society||Abstract:||Results are reported from a search for the effects of contact interactions using events with a high-mass, oppositely charged muon pair. The events are collected in proton-proton collisions at root s = 7 TeV using the Compact Muon Solenoid detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 5: 3 fb(-1). The observed dimuon mass spectrum is consistent with that expected from the standard model. The data are interpreted in the context of a quark-and muon-compositeness model with a left-handed isoscalar current and an energy scale parameter Lambda. The 95% confidence level lower limit on Lambda is 9.5 TeV under the assumption of destructive interference between the standard model and contact-interaction amplitudes. For constructive interference, the limit is 13.1 TeV. These limits are comparable to the most stringent ones reported to date.
