A search is presented for a massive particle, generically referred to as a Z', decaying into a tt̄ pair. The search focuses on Z' resonances that are sufficiently massive to produce highly Lorentz-boosted top quarks, which yield collimated decay products that are partially or fully merged into single jets. The analysis uses new methods to analyze j...
