Description

We present a search for the pair-production of a vector-like top quark partner T of charge + 2/3, using proton-proton collision data at √s=13 TeV collected by the CMS Experiment in 2016 at the CERN LHC. Our search targets T quarks decays to final states with two light charged leptons, b-jets, and multiple light flavored jets. Both same-sign and opposite sign di-lepton channels are considered.
