Title: Search for new resonances decaying into boosted W, Z and H bosons at CMS

Abstract

An overview of the searches for new heavy resonances decaying to standard model (SM) bosons at the TeV mass scale is presented. Results are based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity up to about $$36\; \mathrm{fb}^{-1}$$ recorded in proton-proton collisions at $$\sqrt{s}=13$$ TeV with the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The bosons coming from the resonance decay can be W, Z, or the SM Higgs. For very heavy resonances, bosons are produced with momentum considerably higher than their mass, modifying in a very appreciable way the event topology. The quarks originated from the hadronic decay of the SM bosons will be collimated into a smaller area such that they are clustered within a single large cone jet. Dedicated reconstruction techniques are used to distinguish the merged decay products of W, Z and H bosons produced with high transverse momentum, from jets that originate from single partons.
