Model Description

This effective model extends the Standard Model (SM) field content by introducing the massive vector fields $W^{'#pm}$ and $Z'$ bosons, and are electrically charged and neutral, respectively. To remain model independence, couplings to SM gauge bosons and scalars are omitted.

Following Refs. [ X, Y ], the Lagrangian parameterizing the new vector bosons' couplings to up-type and down-type quark fields $u_i$ and $d_j$ is given by

\begin{eqnarray}
 \mathcal{L}^q  =
    - \frac{g}{\sqrt{2}} \sum_{i,j} \Big[
       \overline{u}_i V_{ij}^{\rm CKM}~W_\mu^{\prime+}~\gamma^\mu
       \Big(\kappa_L^{q} P_L + \kappa_R^{q}P_R\Big)~ d_j + \text{H.c.}\Big]
\\
    - \frac{g}{\cos\theta_W} \sum_{q=u,d}\sum_i \Big[
      \overline{q}_i ~Z_\mu^\prime \gamma^\mu
      \Big(\zeta_{L}^{q}P_L + \zeta_{R}^{q}P_R\Big)q_i\Big] \ ,
+{\rm H.c.}
\end{eqnarray}

Here, $i$ and $j$ denote flavor indices, $P_{L/R}=(1/2)(1\mp\gamma_5)$ and are the usual left/right-handed chirality projectors, $V^{\rm CKM}$ 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 Lagrangian ${\cal L}_{\rm SSM}$ [ X ]. The real-valued quantities $\kappa_{L,R}^q$ and $\zeta_{L,R}^q$

\begin{eqnarray}
  \mathcal{L}^\ell_{\rm NP} =
   - \frac{g}{\sqrt{2}}\sum_i\Big[
       \overline{\nu}_{\ell_i} W_\mu^{\prime+}~\gamma^\mu
        \kappa_L^{\ell} P_L\ell_i^- + \text{H.c.}\Big]
\\
    - \frac{g}{\cos\theta_W} \sum_{f=\ell,\nu_\ell}\sum_i \Big[
      \overline{f}_i ~Z_\mu^\prime \gamma^\mu
      \Big(\zeta_{L}^{f}P_L + \zeta_{R}^{f}P_R\Big)f_i\Big] \ .
+{\rm H.c.}
\end{eqnarray}

The quantities $\kappa_L^\ell$ are real-valued and serve as normalizations for leptonic coupling strengths. As no right-handed neutrinos are present in the SM, the corresponding right-handed leptonic new physics couplings are omitted ($\zeta_R^\nu = \kappa_R^\ell = 0$). We assume that leptonic interactions are flavor diagonal.

\begin{eqnarray}
  \zeta_{R,L}^{f} = \zeta_{Z_{\rm SSM}}^f \Big( g_V^f \pm g_A^f\Big)
  \qquad\text{with}\qquad
  g_V^f = \frac{1}{2}T_L^{3,f} - Q^f\sin^2\theta_W
  \qquad\text{and}\qquad
  g_A^f=-\frac{1}{2}T_L^{3,f},
\end{eqnarray}

In the canonical SSM, the overall normalizations are further trivially fixed as

\begin{eqnarray}
 \kappa^{q,\ell}_L=1, \qquad
 \kappa_R^q=0,
 \qquad\text{and}\qquad
 \zeta_{Z_{\rm SSM}}^{f}=1 \ .
\end{eqnarray}

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 are zero off-diagonal CKM matrix entries. For additional details, see [ 2 ] and references therein. These additions permit tree-level calculations at LO and NLO in QCD, loop-induced calculations at LO in QCD, and NLO matched to NNLL(Veto) resummation using MadGraph_aMC@NLO.

Model Files

  • heavyN.fr: Main model file. Relies on sm.fr (default FR model file) being declared elsewhere.
  • heavyN_NLO.nb: Mathematica notebook file that generates UFO file from FeynRules model files. Allows user to also run quick sanity checks (optional) on model.
  • SM_HeavyN_Files.tgz: Standalone package containing heavyN.fr, heavyN_NLO.nb, massless.rst (default FR file), diagonalCKM.rst (default FR file), and sm.fr (default FR file).

  • This model contains 15 free parameters:
    • Three masses: mN1, mN2, mN3. Defaults are 300 GeV, 500 GeV, and 1 TeV, respectively.
    • Three widths: WN1, WN2, WN3. Defaults are 0.303 GeV, 1.50 GeV, and 12.3 GeV, respectively.
    • Nine real (no CP violation) mixing parameters: Vlk for l = e, mu, tau and k = 1,2,3. Default values are Vlk = Identity(3x3), i.e., Ve1 = Vmu2 = Vta3 = 1 and all others zero.
    • Note: VlN are restricted to be real in the model file.
    • Note: Default parameters are set so "out-of-the-box" checks can be made with [ 1 ] and [ 2 ].

Validation

  • The model file was validated at NLO in [ 2 ] by comparing against Standard Model predictions and $W'$ predictions from [ [#Sullivan ] ], as well as private LO and NLO calculations. See Table III of [ 2 ] for representative total widths that have been checked against analytic computation.
