Abstract

A search is performed in proton-proton collisions at View the MathML sources=8 TeV for exotic particles decaying via WZ to fully leptonic final states with electrons, muons, and neutrinos. The data set corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.5 fb?1. No significant excess is observed above the expected standard model background. Upper bounds at 95% confidence level are set on the production cross section of a W?W? boson as predicted by an extended gauge model, and on the W?WZW?WZ coupling. The expected and observed mass limits for a W?W? boson, as predicted by this model, are 1.55 and 1.47 TeV, respectively. Stringent limits are also set in the context of low-scale technicolor models under a range of assumptions for the model parameters.
