Abstract:
In this talk I'll discuss low-energy and LHC constraints on the effective couplings characterizing non-standard charged current interactions. A direct comparison can be performed within an effective theory framework assuming heavy mediators. We find that depending on the interaction the LHC bounds from pp -> e+MET+X are stronger or weaker than those from beta decays, showing a clear complementarity between both searches. An example within a specific model will be discussed.
