Abstract

The framework of a warped extra dimension with the Standard Model (SM) fields propagating in it is a very well-motivated extension of the SM since it can address both the Planck-weak and flavor hierarchy problems of the SM. Within this framework, solution to the little hierarchy problem motivates extending the SM electroweak (EW) 5D gauge symmetry in such a way that its breakdown to the SM delivers the SM Higgs boson. We study signals at the large hadron collider (LHC) for the extra EW (called coset) gauge bosons, a fundamental ingredient of this framework. The coset gauge bosons, due to their unique EW gauge quantum numbers [doublets of SU(2)_L], do not couple at leading order to two SM particles. We find that, using the associated production of the charged coset gauge bosons via their coupling to SM bottom quark and a (light) KK top quark, the LHC can have a 3\sigma reach of \sim 2 (2.6) TeV for the coset gauge boson masses with \sim 100 (1000) fb^{-1} luminosity. Since current theoretical framework(s) suggest an {\em indirect} lower limit on coset gauge boson masses of >3 TeV, luminosity or energy upgrade of LHC is likely to be crucial in observing these states.
