The CDF dijet excess and Z'_{cs} coupled to the second generation quarks

By Sanghyeon Chang, Kang Young Lee and Jeonghyeon Song


Recently the CDF collaboration has reported the excess in the dijet invariant-mass distribution of the Wjj events, corresponding to a significance of 3.2 standard deviations. Considering the lack of similar excesses in the $\gamma jj$ and $Z jj$ events yet, we propose a new Z' model: Z' couples only to the second generation quarks. Single production of $\zsc$ as well as associated production with $W,\gamma, Z$ are mainly from the sea quarks. Only $W Z'$ production has additional contribution from one valence quark and one sea quark, which is allowed by CKM mixing. We found that if the new gauge coupling is large enough, marginally permitted by perturbativity, this new model can explain the observed CDF $Wjj$ anomaly as well as the lack of $\gm jj$ and $Z jj$ anomalies. Vanishing coupling of Z'-b-b protects this model from the constraint of p pbar ->WH -> l\nu b \bar{b}.Comment: references adde
