We point out that when doubly-charged bileptons are pair produced at the LHC, kinematics dictate that they are both almost at rest in the lab frame and therefore their decays lead to final state muons in a characteristic X-shape with only very tiny track curvature because of the high muon energies. Such X-events have essentially no standard model background and provide a smoking gun for the 331 model.

X-events and their interpretation

Abstract

We point out that when doubly-charged bileptons are pair produced at the LHC, kinematics dictate that they are both almost at rest in the lab frame and therefore their decays lead to final state muons in a characteristic X-shape with only very tiny track curvature because of the high muon energies. Such X-events have essentially no standard model background and provide a smoking gun for the 331 model.
