Nonresonant Axion-Like Particle Searches at the LHC: Implications for Vector Boson Scattering

We discuss nonresonant axion-like particle (ALP) searches in diboson production at the LHC, a collider probe for ALPs which takes advantage of the derivative nature of their interactions with Standard Model particles; here ALPs participate as off-shell mediators in the scattering process. The power of this novel type of search has been tested with gluon-initiated diboson nonresonant production processes, using CMS and ATLAS Run 2 data, probing previously unexplored areas of the ALP parameter space. In addition, new studies on nonresonant
ALP-mediated vector boson scattering (VBS) and preliminary results based on recently published CMS data are presented. Expectations for LHC Run 3 and HL-LHC are derived.

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.
