LHC collider phenomenology of minimal universal extra dimensions

Published: 28 February 2018| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/fkvcgdw9j6.1


We discuss the collider phenomenology of the model of Minimal Universal Extra Dimensions (MUED) at the Large hadron Collider (LHC). We derive analytical results for all relevant strong pair-production processes of two level 1 Kaluza–Klein partners and use them to validate and correct the existing MUED implementation in the fortran version of the Pythia event generator. We also develop a new implementation of the model in the C++ version of Pythia. We use our implementations in conjunction with the Checkmate package to derive the LHC bounds on MUED from a large number of published experimental analyses from Run 1 at the LHC.
