Search for a heavy neutral gauge boson in the dielectron channel with 5.4~fb$^{-1}$ of $\mathbf{p\bar{p}}$ collisions at $\mathbf{\sqrt{s} = 1.96}$~TeV

Description

We report the results of a search for a heavy neutral gauge boson Z' decaying into the dielectron final state using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.4 fb{sup -1} collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. No significant excess above the standard model prediction is observed in the dielectron invariant-mass spectrum. We set 95% C.L. upper limits on {sigma}(p{bar p} {yields} Z') x BR(Z' {yields} ee) depending on the dielectron invariant mass. These cross section limits are used to determine lower mass limits for Z' bosons in a variety of models with standard model couplings ... continued below
