LHC constraints and potential on resonant monotop production

Abstract : We discuss the phenomenology associated with a resonant monotop collider signal, i.e.  a signal in which a single top quark is resonantly produced in association with missing energy through an s-channel scalar exchange. We study both the bounds originating from dedicated monotop searches performed by the ATLAS and CMS experiments, and the constraints associated with other processes that could be induced by a new physics context favouring monotop production at colliders. The latter class of constraints includes, in particular, the recasting of analyses from the LHC and the TeVatron. All theoretical calculations are performed at the next-to-leading order accuracy in QCD, and we finally combine all results to establish the present limits on the parameter space and test the relevance of the monotop signal at the LHC Run 2.
