Model Description
This effective model extends the Standard Model (SM) field content by introducing the massive vector fields W'^{+/} and Z' bosons, which are electrically charged and neutral, respectively. To remain model independent, couplings to SM gauge bosons and scalars are omitted.
Following Refs. [ 1, 2 ], the Lagrangian parameterizing the new vector bosons' couplings to uptype and downtype quark fields u_{i} and d_{j} is given by
Here, i and j denote flavor indices, P_{L/R} are the usual left/righthanded chirality projectors, V^{CKM} is the CKM matrix, and g and \theta_W are the weak coupling constant and mixing angle respectively. We choose coupling normalizations facilitating the mapping to the reference Sequential Standard Model (SSM) Lagrangian {\cal L}_{\rm SSM} [ 3 ]. The realvalued quantities \kappa_{L,R}^q and \zeta_{L,R}^q serve as overall normalization of the new interactions relative to the strength of the weak coupling constant.
The interactions involving charged lepton \ell and massless neutrino \nu_\ell fields are parametrized by
The quantities \kappa_L^\ell are realvalued and serve as normalizations for leptonic coupling strengths. As no righthanded neutrinos are present in the SM, the corresponding righthanded leptonic new physics couplings are omitted (\zeta_R^\nu = \kappa_R^\ell = 0).
From our general Lagrangians, the SSM limit is obtained by imposing the coupling strengths to be equal to the SM weak couplings up to an overall normalization factor:
In the canonical SSM, the overall normalizations are further trivially fixed as
NLO in QCD Corrections
The above Lagrangian in the Feynman Gauge was implemented into FeynRules 2.3.10. QCD renormalization and R2 rational counter terms were determined using NLOCT 1.02 and FeynArts 3.8. Feynman rules were collected into a single UFO, available below. In the UFO file, five massless quarks are assumed as well as vanishing offdiagonal CKM matrix entries. For additional details, see [ 4 ] and references therein. These additions permit treelevel calculations at LO and NLO in QCD, loopinduced calculations at LO in QCD, and NLO calculations matched to NNLL(Veto) resummation using MadGraph_aMC@NLO.

 This model contains six free parameters by default:
 Two masses: mzp, mwp, with default values of 3 TeV.
 Two widths: wzp, wwp, with default values of 89.59 and 101.27 GeV, respectively.
 Two coupling normalizations: kL, kR, with default values 1.0 and 0.0, respectively.
Validation
 The model file was validated at NLO in [ 4 ] by comparing against Standard Model predictions and W^{'} predictions from [ 5 ], as well as private LO and NLO calculations. See Table III of [ 4 ] for representative total widths that have been checked against analytic computation.
