    Abstract:
    We search for excited and exotic muon states * using an integrated luminosity of 371pb-1 of pp collision data at s=1.96TeV. We search for associated production of * followed by the decay *. We compare the data to model predictions as a function of the mass of the excited muon M *, the compositeness energy scale , and the gauge coupling factor f. No signal above the standard model expectation is observed. We exclude 107<M *<853GeV/c2 for =M * in the contact interaction model, and 100<M *<410GeV/c2 for f/=10-2GeV-1 in the gauge-mediated model, both at the 95% confidence level. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
