We present a new observable sensitive to a certain combination of CP violating phases in supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model, viz. a triple product of momenta in the cascade decay of a heavy squark via an on-shell neutralino and off-shell slepton. We investigate the regions of parameter space in which the signal is strong enough to be detectable at the LHC with $\sim \bigl(10^2-10^3\bigr)/\sin^2(2\Delta\phi)$ identified events, where $\Delta\phi$ is a certain combination of phases…

CP asymmetries in the supersymmetric trilepton signal at the LHC
In the CP-violating Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, we study the production of a neutralino–chargino pair at the LHC. For their decays into three leptons, we analyze CP asymmetries which are
SUSY CP phases and asymmetries at colliders
In the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, physical phases of complex parameters lead to CP violation. We show how triple products of particle momenta or spins can be used to construct
Probing CP violation with and without momentum reconstruction at the LHC
We study the potential to observe CP-violating effects in SUSY cascade decay chains at the LHC. We consider squark and gluino production followed by subsequent decays into neutralinos with a

We explore in detail the consequences of the CP-violating phases residing in the supersymmetric and soft SUSY breaking parameters in the approximation that family flavour mixings are ignored. We
