Title: Right-Handed Neutrinos and the 2 TeV $W'$ Boson

Abstract

The CMS e+e-jj events of invariant mass near 2 TeV are consistent with a W' boson decaying into an electron and a right-handed neutrino whose TeV-scale mass is of the Dirac type. We show that the Dirac partner of the right-handed electron-neutrino can be the right-handed tau-neutrino. Furthermore, a prediction of this model is that the sum of the τ+e+jj and τ-e-jj signal cross sections equals twice that for e+e-jj. The Standard Model neutrinos acquire Majorana masses and mixings compatible with neutrino oscillation data.
