Abstract

D A Unwuchola1,2 1 University of Johannesburg, P.O.Box 524, Auckland Park 2006, Johannesburg, South Africa. 2 On behalf of the ATLAS collaboration Considering the prediction by several models of a new sector with a light new gauge boson (Zd) coupled with Standard model, the discovered Higgs boson can be used as portal to probe this new sector [1]. The leptons from very light Zd are very boosted and therefore are potentially close to each other making the isolation criteria inefficient with background from J/Ψ and Y at lower energies below 15 GeV. The Large Hadron Collider run 2 data collection and analysis will be in the light to explore this region. We present with respect to several production modes the generation and validation of signal events for the H-> Zd Zd -> 4l and optimization of cuts.
