The same sign dilepton channel is a good probe for BSM physics at LHC due to its very low background in the SM and this final state is expected in a wide variety of new physics models: Composite Higgs Model, Randall-Sundrum, SUSY, … This final state is used here to analyse different exotic models.
The exotic partners of the top as T5/3 (decay to tW) and 4-top events presented here are the most
spectacular final states of models with Higgs and top composite and their final state are quite similar.
Two analyses are presented here :
- a theoretical analysis with 4 tops in the final state : four-top production is a spectacular final state and a sensitive probe of new physics. Examples are models where the top quark is partially composite or where a new heavy particle couples strongly or exclusively to top quarks.
- an experimental analysis with an extradimensional model which includes top partner particles as well as four-top production. This analysis includes the first ATLAS results: a limit on the four-top production cross-section and a limit on the composite model when both pair and single production of the top partner are taken into account.
