Like-Sign W Boson Production at the LHC as a Probe of Double Parton Scattering

Abstract

Double parton scattering, i.e. two parton hard scattering processes in the same hadron-hadron collision, may constitute an important background for Higgs and other new particle searches at the LHC. We point out that like-sign W pair production provides a relatively clean way of searching for, and calibrating, double parton scattering at the LHC.Comment: 10 pages, LaTeX, 5 figures, epsfi
