Abstract

The expected ATLAS Run 3 data set with time-integrated luminosity of 300 fb-1 and HL-LHC option of the LHC with L = 3000 fb-1 in the diboson channels in semileptonic final states are used to probe a simple benchmark model with an extended gauge sector, proposed by Altarelli et al. This model accommodates new charged W' and neutral Z' vector bosons with modified trilinear Standard Model gauge couplings, decaying into electroweak gauge boson pairs WZ or WW , where W / Z decay semileptonically. We present upper limits on the mixing parameters, W - W' and Z- Z ' , by using the expected Run 3 data and HL-LHC options of the LHC.
