Abstract

Abstract: We study the collider implication of a neutral resonance which decays to several diboson final states such as W+W, ZZ, and Zγ via a minimal set of effective operators. We consider both CP-even and CP-odd bosonic states with spin 0, 1, or 2. The production cross sections for the bosonic resonance states are obtained with the effective operators involving gluons (and quarks), and the branching fractions are obtained with the operators responsible for the interactions with electroweak gauge bosons. We demonstrate that each scenario allows for a broad parameter space which could accommodate the recently-reported intriguing excesses in the ATLAS diboson final states, and discuss how the CP states and spin information of the resonance can be extracted at the LHC run II.
