Searches for vector-like quarks at CMS
August 02, 2019
This contribution details results of recently completed searches for massive vector-like top and bottom quark partners using proton-proton collision data collected with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. Single and pair production of vector-like quarks are studied, with decays into a variety of final states, containing top and bottom quarks, electroweak gauge and Higgs bosons. Analyses utilize several categories of reconstructed objects, from multi-leptonic to fully hadronic final states. Improved exclusion limits on both the vector-like quark mass and cross sections are obtained, for combinations of the possible vector-like quark branching ratios.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
