1307.6295 (Masato Arai et al.)

Kaluza-Klein gluon searches using the three b-jets decay channel at the
Large Hadron Collider

Masato Arai, Gi-Chol Cho, Karel Smolek
We study observability of a Kaluza-Klein (KK) excitation of a gluon in a five-dimensional model with a warped geometry at the Large Hadron Collider. In this model, the Standard Model fields reside in the bulk and the third generation quarks couple to the KK gluon strongly. We focus on the processes including three b-quarks as a final state where the first KK gluon propagates as an intermediate state. We evaluate a significance of those processes by taking account of kinematical cuts and a detector efficiency at the Large Hadron Collider and find that the significance is lager than 5-sigma with the integrated luminosity of 10 (100) fb^{-1} for a certain range of parameters of the model.
