Search for new physics in proton-proton collisions at 8 TeV center of mass energy with a final state of same-sign dileptons and jets

Abstract (Summary)

A search for new physics is performed using events with isolated same-sign leptons and jets in the final state. Results are based on the full sample of proton-proton collisions collected from the Large Hadron Collider at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV with the CMS detector and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.5 fb-1. No excess above the standard model background is observed and constraints on a number of new physics models are set.
