ttH, ttZ and ttW measurements at LHC and top quark compositeness

15 Mar 2017  ·  Richard Francois ·

This note is an attempt to interpret some excesses, not yet significant due to systematics, observed by ATLAS and CMS in various analyses related to the standard channels ttH, ttZ and ttW. It is argued, within a composite interpretation of top particles, that such excesses are not necessarily related to these channels themselves, although this is not excluded, but due to the underlying presence of either vector-like heavy quarks tprime,bprime or to final states as predicted in composite theories... The outcome of this discussion is that although it will not be easy to reach an exclusive interpretation, the data collected at 13 TeV may establish the origin of this effect as coming from the four top quark topology. read more
