Graviton production at the LHC to higher orders in QCD.


IIT Guwahati

In particle Physics, the gauge bosons are the mediators for the interactions among the matter particles. Of these, spin-0 and spin-1 have been studied well in the collider experiments. However, the search for spin-2/massive graviton particle as predicted in different extra dimension models is going on at collider experiments. Since gravity couples to energy momentum tensor, it couples equally to all the SM particles including quarks and gluons. Because of this, the QCD corrections to the graviton production in hadron collisions are very significant. In this talk, I will discuss the impact of higher order QCD corrections on the graviton production at the LHC and present the state of the art cross sections with numerical results.
