Multijet plus missing energy searches provide universal coverage for theories that have new colored particles that decay into a dark matter candidate and jets. These signals appear at the LHC further out on the missing energy tail than two-to-two scattering indicates. The simplicity of the searches at the LHC contrasts sharply with the Tevatron where more elaborate searches are necessary to separate signal from background. The searches presented in this article effectively distinguish signal… Expand
Heavy flavor simplified models at the LHC
A bstractWe consider a comprehensive set of simplified models that contribute to final states with top and bottom quarks at the LHC. These simplified models are used to create minimal searchExpand
Where the sidewalk ends: jets and missing energy search strategies for the 7 TeV LHC
This work explores the potential reach of the 7 TeV LHC to new colored states in the context of simplified models and addresses the issue of which search regions are necessary to cover an extensiveExpand
Multi-hadron final states in RPV supersymmetric models with extra matter
Abstract The gluino mass has been constrained by various search channels at the LHC experiments and the recent analyses are even sensitive to the cases where gluinos decay to quarks at the end of theExpand
Compressed electroweakino spectra at the LHC
A bstractIn this work, we examine the sensitivity of monojet searches at the LHC to directly produced charginos and neutralinos (electroweakinos) in the limit of small mass splitting, where theExpand
Identifying dark matter event topologies at the LHC
Assuming dark matter particles can be pair-produced at the LHC from cascade decays of heavy particles, we investigate strategies to identify the event topologies based on the kinematic information ofExpand
Exploring QCD uncertainties when setting limits on compressed supersymmetric spectra
If Supersymmetry (SUSY) has a compressed spectrum the current limits from the LHC can be drastically reduced. We take possible `worst case' scenarios where combinations of the stop, squark and gluinoExpand
Direct Detection Constraints on Dark Matter Event Rates in Neutrino Telescopes, and Collider Implications
Neutrino telescopes are looking to detect neutrinos produced by the annihilation of weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) dark matter in the sun. The event rate depends on the dark matterExpand
Interpreting the first CMS and ATLAS SUSY results
Abstract The CMS and the ATLAS Collaborations have recently reported on the search for supersymmetry with 35 pb−1 of data and have put independent limits on the parameter space of the supergravityExpand
LHC discovery potential for supersymmetry with s = 7 TeV and 5 – 30 fb − 1
We extend our earlier results delineating the supersymmetry (SUSY) reach of the CERN Large Hadron Collider operating at a centre-of-mass energy \sqrt{s}=7 TeV to integrated luminosities in the rangeExpand
Multicomponent Dark Matter in Supersymmetric Hidden Sector Extensions
Most analyses of dark matter within supersymmetry assume the entire cold dark matter arising only from weakly interacting neutralinos. We study a new class of models consisting of U(1){sup n} hiddenExpand


Search for large extra dimensions in the production of jets and missing transverse energy in pp̄ collisions at s=1.96TeV
The authors present the results of a search for new physics in the jets plus missing transverse energy data sample collected from 368 pb{sup -1} of p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeVExpand
Inclusive jet production, parton distributions, and the search for new physics
Jet production at the Tevatron probes some of the smallest distance scales currently accessible. A gluon distribution that is enhanced at large x compared to previous determinations provides a betterExpand
Squark and gluino production with jets
We present cross section predictions for squark and gluino production at the LHC, in association with up to two additional hard jets. These cross sections can be very large in comparison to theExpand
Searches for Supersymmetry at the LHC and its Dark Matter Candidate
Supersymmetry (SUSY) is a theoretically attractive scenario for physics beyond the Standard Model which provides a suitable Dark Matter candidate in case R-parity is conserved. If SUSY is realizedExpand
Search for supersymmetry at the CMS in all-hadronic final state
We present a search for supersymmetry (SUSY) in the fully hadronic final state with the CMS detector at the LHC. This final state contains at least two jets and a significant transverse energyExpand
Model-independent jets plus missing energy searches
We present a proposal for performing model-independent jets plus missing energy searches. Currently, these searches are optimized for mSUGRA and are consequently not sensitive to all kinematicallyExpand
Searching for directly decaying gluinos at the Tevatron
Abstract This Letter describes how to perform searches over the complete kinematically-allowed parameter space for new pair-produced color octet particles that each subsequently decay into two jetsExpand
Searches for squarks and gluinos at CDF and DØ detectors
This contribution reports on preliminary measurements on searches for squarks and gluinos at CDF and D0 detectors in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. The analyses are performed usingExpand
Dijet searches for supersymmetry at the large hadron collider.
Preliminary investigations suggest that signal-to-background ratios of at least 4-5 should be achievable at the LHC, with discovery possible for squarks as heavy as approximately 1.7 TeV. Expand
A composite gluino at the LHC
We investigate the decay of particles with the quantum numbers of the gluino. Besides SUSY, such particles may be present in models where the Higgs and top are composite. We find that suchExpand
