Abstract

Leptoquarks are bosons whose discovery would be a sign of new physics. Fermion compositeness would give rise to excited states of quarks and leptons which would radiatively decay to standard-model fermions. This paper presents searches for leptoquarks and for fermion compositeness, focusing on the recent results obtained using data collected at Run-II of the LHC.
