The Determination of the Helicity of W' Boson Coupling at the LHC
Abstract
Apart from its mass and width, the most important property of a new charged gauge boson, W{prime}, is the helicity of its couplings to the SM fermions. Such particles are expected to exist in many extensions of the Standard Model. In this paper we explore the capability of the LHC to determine the W{prime} coupling helicity at low integrated luminosities in the {ell} + E{sub T}{sup miss} discovery channel. We find that measurements of the transverse mass distribution, reconstructed from this final state in the WW{prime} interference region, provides the best determination of this quantity. To make such measurements requires integrated luminosities of {approx} 10(60) fb{sup 1} assuming M{sub W{prime}} = 1.5(2.5) TeV and provided that the W{prime} couplings have Standard Model magnitude. This helicity determination can be further strengthened by the use of various discovery channel leptonic asymmetries, also measured in the same interference regime, but with higher integrated luminosities.

Electroweak corrections and anomalous triple gaugeboson couplings in W{sup +}W{sup } and W{sup {+}}Z production at the CERN LHC
We have analyzed the production of WZ and WW vectorboson pairs at the LHC. These processes give rise to fourfermion final states, and are particularly sensitive to possible nonstandard trilinear gaugeboson couplings. We have studied the interplay between the influence of these anomalous couplings and the effect of the complete logarithmic electroweak O({alpha}) corrections. Radiative corrections to the standard model processes in doublepole approximation and nonstandard terms due to trilinear couplings are implemented into a Monte Carlo program for pp{yields}4f(+{gamma}) with final states involving four or two charged leptons. We numerically investigate purely leptonic final states and find that electroweakmore » 
QCD corrections to associated Higgs boson production with a W boson pair at LHC
The Higgs boson production in association with a pair of W bosons at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) can be used to probe the coupling between the Higgs boson and vector gauge bosons and discover the signature of new physics. We describe the impact of the complete QCD nexttoleading order (NLO) radiative corrections and the gluongluon fusion subprocesses to the cross section of this process at the LHC and investigate the dependence of the leading order (LO) and QCD corrected cross sections on the factorization/renormalization energy scale and Higgs boson mass. We present the LO and QCD corrected distributions ofmore » 
Possibility of observing an MSSM charged Higgs boson in association with a W boson at the LHC
The possibility of observing associated production of the charged Higgs and W boson in the framework of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) at LHC is studied. Both leptonic and hadronic decays of the W boson are studied while the charged Higgs boson is considered to decay to a {tau} lepton and a neutrino. Therefore two search categories are defined based on the leptonic and hadronic final states, i.e., l{tau}+E{sub T}{sup miss} and jj{tau}+E{sub T}{sup miss} where l=e or {mu} and j is a light jet from W decay. The discovery chance of the two categories is evaluated at anmore » 
Observing H{yields}W{sup (*)}W{sup (*)}{yields}e{sup {+}}{mu}{sup {+}}pe{sub T} in weak boson fusion with dual forward jet tagging at the CERN LHC
Weak boson fusion promises to be a copious source of intermediate mass standard model Higgs bosons at the CERN LHC. The additional very energetic forward jets in these events provide for powerful background suppression tools. We analyze the H{yields}W{sup (*)}W{sup (*)}{yields}e{sup {+}}{mu}{sup {+}}pe{sub T} decay mode for a Higgs boson mass in the 130200 GeV range. A parton level analysis of the dominant backgrounds (production of W pairs, tt(bar sign) and Z{yields}{tau}{tau} in association with jets) demonstrates that this channel allows the observation of H{yields}W{sup (*)}W{sup (*)} in a virtually backgroundfree environment, yielding a significant Higgs boson signal with anmore »
