Abstract

SPRACE is actively involved in analysis for beyond standard model physics searches at the CMS collaboration. Within the "Exotica" analysis group, we are looking for signatures of a heavy resonance decaying in two bosons. This signature is present in alternative scenarios to the electroweak symmetry breaking sector, among others theoretical interesting scenarios.
