Search for High Energy Electrons from New Neutral Massive Gauge Boson Decay in the CMS Detector at the LHC Using Monte Carlo Simulation


The existence of new heavy neutral massive boson Z′ is a feature of many extensions of Standard Model models as the two-Higgs-doublet model (2HDM), the Hidden Abelian Higgs Model (HAHM), Left-Right Symmetric Model (LRSM), Sequential Standard Model (SSM) and Baryon number minus Lepton number Model (B-L). In the present work we search for two high energy electrons produced from decayingheavy neutral massive boson in the events produced in proton-proton collisions at LHC and can be detected by CMS detector. We used the data which is produced from proton-proton collisions by Monte Carlo events generator for different energies at LHC, then we use the angular distribution, invariant mass, combined transverse momentum and combined rapidity distributions for the two high energy electrons produced from decay channel to detect thesignal. B-L extension of the SM model predicts the existence of aheavy neutral massive boson at high energies. From our results which we had simulated using MC programs forin the B-L extension of standard model, we predict a possible existence of new gaugeat LHC in the mass range 1 TeV to 1.5 TeV via electrons identification of the two high energy electrons by CMS detector.
