Search for anomalous Wtb couplings and flavour-changing neutral currents in t-channel single top quark production in pp collisions at ?s=7 and 8 TeV

Abstract: Single top quark events produced in the t channel are used to set limits on anomalous Wtb couplings and to search for top quark flavour-changing neutral current (FCNC) interactions. The data taken with the CMS detector at the LHC in proton-proton collisions at s=7 and 8 TeV correspond to integrated luminosities of 5.0 and 19.7 fb?1, respectively. The analysis is performed using events with one muon and two or three jets. A Bayesian neural network technique is used to discriminate between the signal and backgrounds, which are observed to be consistent with the standard model prediction. The 95% confidence level (CL) exclusion limits on anomalous right-handed vector, and left- and right-handed tensor Wtb couplings are measured to be |fV R| < 0.16,?|fT L| < 0.057, and ? 0.049 < fT R < 0.048, respectively. For the FCNC couplings ?tug and ?tcg, the 95% CL upper limits on coupling strengths are |?tug|/? < 4.1 × 10? 3 TeV?1 and |?tcg|/? < 1.8 × 10? 2 TeV?1, where ? is the scale for new physics, and correspond to upper limits on the branching fractions of 2.0 × 10?5 and 4.1 × 10?4 for the decays t ? ug and t ? cg, respectively.
