Abstract

Doubly charged Higgs bosons decaying to dileptons in pp̈ collisions at √s=1.96 TeV were searched. An inclusive search for double charged resonances in same-sign ee data with m ee> 100 GeV / c 2, and same sign μμ and eμ data with m ll'> 80 GeV / c 2, was performed. The acceptance systematic uncertainty was dominated by the parton distribution function uncertainty, which was estimated to be 4% using the Martin-Roberts-Stirling-Thorne prescription. No new evidence for doubly charged resonances was found, and the extended mass limit was extended on doubly charged decaying Higgs bosons.
