 Search for a dimuon resonance in the $\Upsilon$ mass region / LHCb Collaboration A search is performed for a spin-0 boson, $\phi$, produced in proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, using prompt $\phi\rightarrow\mu^+\mu^-$ decays and a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approximately 3.0 ${\rm fb}^{-1}$ collected with the LHCb detector.
