Exploring non minimal Universal Extra Dimensional model at the LHC

We study the collider phenomenology of non minimal universal extra dimensional (nmUED) model in the context of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. nmUED is an incarnation of the Standard Model in 4 + 1 space-time dimensions compactified on an S1/Z2 orbifold supplemented with boundary localized operators with unknown coefficients. These coefficients parametrize the radiative corrections which are somehow arbitrary due to the lack of knowledge of the cut-off scale of such effective theory. It is possible to tune the masses and couplings of the Kaluza Klein (KK) excitations by tuning these parameters. Two scenarios with different mass hierarchies among the KK-excitations have been considered. A detailed study of production cross-sections and different decay modes of KK-particles are also presented. We calculate the correlated bounds on masses of KK-particles using the LHC [InlineMediaObject not available: see fulltext.] data (in case of production of strongly interacting particles) and [InlineMediaObject not available: see fulltext.] data (in case of electroweak productions). We work in a KK-parity conserving scenario where the lightest KK-particle is a potential dark (DM) matter candidate. We use the additional constraints coming from the observed DM relic density of the universe to identify the allowed parameter space. The current status of a nmUED model in the light of DM direct detection data is also examined. The present investigation reveals that production and subsequent leptonic decays of KK-electroweak gauge bosons as massive as 1 TeV, lead to observable trilepton signature with a luminosity of 1 ab−1 which will be realized in near future. © 2018, The Author(s).
