Description of the model

We consider a color singlet vector particle (V1) which dominantly couples to top and anti-top. Assuming that all other interactions are weak, the relevant interaction is given by the following renormalizable Lagrangian

where PL (PR) is a left (right)-handed projection operator. There are three free parameters, the vector resonance mass (MV1), the overall coupling strength (ct), and the chirality angle (θ).

Model files

  • : the main model file.
  • Top_Philic_UFO_gen.nb: the Mathematica notebook to generate a UFO output, including basic Feynman rules and analytic expressions of the decay width of V1. The notebook also generates a text script for a tree-level production of V1 in a four-top final state (arXiv:1604.07421).


  • There are three free parameters in the model:
    • ct1: the overall coupling strength (ct)
    • theta1: the chirality angle (θ)
    • Mv1: the vector resonance mass (MV1)
  • Set the automatic width calculation: set param_card Wv1 Auto.
  • The syntax for the tree-level production of V1 is given by: generate p p > t t~ v1/v1 , v1 > t t~
