Searching for Flavored Gauge Bosons.

Eung Jin Chun, Arindam Das, Jinsu Kim, Jongkuk Kim

Standard Model may allow an extended gauge sector with anomaly-free flavored gauge symmetries, such as $L_{i} - L_{j}$, $B_{i} - L_{j}$, and $B - 3L_{i}$, where $i,j=1,2,3$ are flavor indices. We investigate phenomenological implications of the new flavored gauge boson $Z^{\prime}$ in the above three classes of gauge symmetries. Focusing on the gauge boson mass above 10 GeV, we use the lepton universality test in the $Z$ and $\tau/\mu$ decays, LEP searches, LHC searches, neutrino trident production bound, and LHC $Z\rightarrow 4\mu$ searches to put constraints on the $g^{\prime}-M_{Z^{\prime}}$ plane. When $L_1$ is involved, the LEP bounds on the $e^{-}e^{+} \rightarrow \ell^{-}\ell^{+}$ processes give the most stringent bounds, while the LHC bound becomes the strongest constraints in the large $M_{Z^{\prime}}$ region when $B_{i}$ is involved. The bound from $Z\rightarrow 4\mu$ productions, which is applicable for $L_2$-involved scenarios, provides stringent bounds in the small $M_{Z^{\prime}}$ region. One exception is the $B-3L_2$ scenario, in which case only a small region is favored due to the lepton universality.
