Abstract

The decay of new heavy neutral gauge bosons (Z′) into three gauge boson final states (e.g., W+W-Z) is examined within the context of E6 superstring-inspired models. We find that the ratio of decay rates Γ(Z′→W+W-Z)/Γ(Z′→W+W-) grows quadratically with the Z′ mass and can be as large ≅0.43 for a Z′ mass of 3 TeV. Suuch final states should be observable above the continuum at both e+e- and hadron colliders.
