2  KHACHATRYAN 2016K search for resonances decaying to dijets in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 13 TeV.
3  KHACHATRYAN 2016L search for resonances decaying to dijets in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 8 TeV with the data scouting technique, increasing the sensitivity to the low mass resonances.

6  AAD 2016W search for a new resonance decaying to a pair of ${{\mathit b}}$ and ${{\mathit B}_{{H}}}$ in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 8 TeV. The vector-like quark ${{\mathit B}_{{H}}}$ is assumed to decay to . See their Fig. 3 and Fig. 4 for limits on $\sigma \cdot{}\mathit B$.
7  KHACHATRYAN 2016E search for KK gluon decaying to ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 8 TeV.
8  KHACHATRYAN 2015AV search for pair productions of neutral color-octet weak-triplet scalar particles (${{\mathit \Theta}^{0}}$), decaying to ${{\mathit b}}{{\overline{\mathit b}}}$ , ${{\mathit Z}}{{\mathit g}}$ or ${{\mathit \gamma}}{{\mathit g}}$ , in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 8 TeV. The ${{\mathit \Theta}^{0}}$ particle is often predicted in coloron (${{\mathit G}^{\,'}}$, color-octet gauge boson) models and appear in the ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions through ${{\mathit G}^{\,'}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit \Theta}^{0}}{{\mathit \Theta}^{0}}$ decays. Assuming B( ${{\mathit \Theta}^{0}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit b}}{{\overline{\mathit b}}}$ ) = 0.5, they give limits ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit \Theta}^{0}}}$ $>$ 623 GeV (426 GeV) for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit G}^{\,'}}}$ = 2.3 ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit \Theta}^{0}}}$ (${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit G}^{\,'}}}$ = 5 ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit \Theta}^{0}}}$).

For 50 GeV $<$ ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit \sigma}}}$ $<$ ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit g}_{{A}}}}$/2, axigluons in mass range $150 - 400$ GeV are excluded.

11  CHATRCHYAN 2013AS search for new resonance decaying to dijets in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 8 TeV.

13  ABAZOV 2012R search for massive color octet vector particle decaying to ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ . The quoted limit assumes ${{\mathit g}_{{A}}}$ couplings with light quarks are suppressed by 0.2.
14  CHATRCHYAN 2011Y search for new resonance decaying to dijets in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }~=~7~$TeV.
15  AALTONEN 2010L search for massive color octet non-chiral vector particle decaying into ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ pair with mass in the range 400 GeV $<$ M $<$ 800 GeV. See their Fig.$~$6 for limit in the mass-coupling plane.
16  KHACHATRYAN 2010 search for new resonance decaying to dijets in ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }~=~7~$TeV.
17  AALTONEN 2009AC search for new narrow resonance decaying to dijets.
18  CHOUDHURY 2007 limit is from the ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ production cross section measured at CDF.
19  DONCHESKI 1998 compare $\alpha _{\mathit s}$ derived from low-energy data and that from $\Gamma\mathrm {( {{\mathit Z}} \rightarrow hadrons)}/\Gamma\mathrm {( {{\mathit Z}} \rightarrow leptons)}$.
20  ABE 1997G search for new particle decaying to dijets.
21  ABE 1995N assume axigluons decaying to quarks in the Standard Model only.
22  ABE 1993G assume $\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit g}_{{A}}})}$ = $\mathit N{{\mathit \alpha}_{{s}}}{\mathit m}_{{{\mathit g}_{{A}}}}$/6 with $\mathit N$ = 10.
23  CUYPERS 1991 compare $\alpha _{\mathit s}$ measured in ${{\mathit \Upsilon}}$ decay and that from $\mathit R$ at PEP/PETRA energies.
24  ABE 1990H assumes $\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit g}_{{A}}})}$ = $\mathit N{{\mathit \alpha}_{{s}}}{\mathit m}_{{{\mathit g}_{{A}}}}$/6 with $\mathit N$ = 5$~(\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit g}_{{A}}})}$ = 0.09${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit g}_{{A}}}}$). For $\mathit N$ = 10, the excluded region is reduced to 120$-$150 GeV.
25  ROBINETT 1989 result demands partial-wave unitarity of $\mathit J = 0$ ${\mathit {\mathit t}}$ ${\mathit {\overline{\mathit t}}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${\mathit {\mathit t}}$ ${\mathit {\overline{\mathit t}}}$ scattering amplitude and derives a limit ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit g}_{{A}}}}$ $>$ $0.5$ ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$. Assumes ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$ $>$ 56 GeV.
26  ALBAJAR 1988B result is from the nonobservation of a peak in two-jet invariant mass distribution. $\Gamma\mathrm {({{\mathit g}_{{A}}})}$ $<$ $0.4$ ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit g}_{{A}}}}$ assumed. See also BAGGER 1988 .
27  CUYPERS 1988 requires $\Gamma\mathrm {( {{\mathit \Upsilon}} \rightarrow {{\mathit g}} {{\mathit g}_{{A}}} )}<\Gamma\mathrm {( {{\mathit \Upsilon}} \rightarrow {{\mathit g}} {{\mathit g}} {{\mathit g}} )}$. A similar result is obtained by DONCHESKI 1988 .
28  DONCHESKI 1988B requires $\Gamma\mathrm {( {{\mathit \Upsilon}} \rightarrow {{\mathit g}} {{\mathit q}} {{\overline{\mathit q}}} )}/\Gamma\mathrm {( {{\mathit \Upsilon}} \rightarrow {{\mathit g}} {{\mathit g}} {{\mathit g}} )}$ $<$ $0.25$, where the former decay proceeds via axigluon exchange. A more conservative estimate of $<$ $0.5$ leads to ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit g}_{{A}}}}$ $>$ 21 GeV.
