Abstract

We search for resonant production of tt pairs in 4.8 fb^-1 integrated luminosity of ppbar collision data at sqrts=1.96 TeV in the lepton+jets decay channel, where one top quark decays leptonically and the other hadronically. A matrix element reconstruction technique is used; for each event a probability density function pdf of the ttbar candidate invariant mass is sampled. These pdfs are used to construct a likelihood function, whereby the cross section for resonant ttbar production is estimated, given a hypothetical resonance mass and width. The data indicate no evidence of resonant production of ttbar pairs. A benchmark model of leptophobic Z \rightarrow ttbar is excluded with m_Z' < 900 GeV at 95% confidence level.

Description

A search for resonant production of $t\bar{t}$ pairs in $4.8\ \rm{fb}^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity of $p\bar{p}$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=1.96\ \rm{TeV}$
