Abstract
Description
Dilepton-jet final states are used to study physical phenomena not predicted by the standard model. The ATLAS discovery potential for leptoquarks and Majorana Neutrinos is presented using a full simulation of the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The study is motivated by the role of the leptoquark in the Grand Unification of fundamental forces and the see-saw mechanism that could explain the masses of the observed neutrinos. The analysis algorithms are presented, background sources are discussed and estimates of sensitivity and the discovery potential for these processes are reported.
