We test the impact of the ATLAS and CMS multi-lepton searches performed at the LHC with 8 as well as 13 TeV center-of-mass energy (using only the pre-2018 results) on the chargino and neutralino sector of the NMSSM. Our purpose consists in analyzing the actual reach of these searches for a full model and in emphasizing effects beyond the MSSM that affect the performance of current (MSSM-inspired) electroweakino searches. To this end, we consider several scenarios characterizing specific…

Revisiting singlino dark matter of the natural Z3-symmetric NMSSM in the light of LHC
Abstract Inspired by the fact that relatively small values of the effective higgsino mass parameter of the Z 3-symmetric Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM) could render the
Dark matter in the CP-violating NMSSM
In the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model there is a strong correlation between the mass terms corresponding to the singlet Higgs and the singlino interaction states, both of which are
Impact of recent (g − 2)μ measurement on the light CP-even Higgs scenario in general Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model
The General Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (GNMSSM) is an attractive theory that is free from the tadpole problem and the domain-wall problem of Z 3 -NMSSM, and can form an economic
Electroweak corrections to the fermionic decays of heavy Higgs states
Extensions of the standard model often come with additional, possibly electroweakly charged Higgs states, the prototypal example being the Two-Higgs-Doublet Model. While collider phenomenology does
Light higgsino-dominated NLSPs in semi-constrained NMSSM
In the semi-constrained NMSSM (scNMSSM, or NMSSM with non-universal Higgs mass) under current constraints, we consider a scenario where $h_2$ is the SM-like Higgs, $\tilde{\chi}^0_1$ is
A relatively light, highly bino-like dark matter in the Z3-symmetric NMSSM and recent LHC searches
A highly bino-like Dark Matter (DM), which is the Lightest Supersymmetric Particle (LSP), could be motivated by the stringent upper bounds on the DM direct detection rates. This is especially so when
Improved $(g-2)_\mu$ measurement and singlino dark matter in $\mu$-term extended $\mathbb{Z}_3$-NMSSM
Very recently, a Fermilab report of muon g − 2 showed a 4.2σ discrepancy between it and the standard model (SM) prediction. Motivated by this inspiring result and the increasing tension in
Current bounds and future prospects of light neutralino dark matter in the NMSSM
Unlike its minimal counterpart, the Next to Minimal supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM) allows the possibility that the lightest neutralino could have a mass as small as $\sim 1~{\rm GeV}$ while
Phenomenology of scotogenic scalar dark matter
We reexamine the minimal Singlet + Triplet Scotogenic Model, where dark matter is the mediator of neutrino mass generation. We assume it to be a scalar WIMP, whose stability follows from the same


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 the
Combined collider constraints on neutralinos and charginos
Searches for supersymmetric electroweakinos have entered a crucial phase, as the integrated luminosity of the Large Hadron Collider is now high enough to compensate for their weak production
Current status of a natural NMSSM in light of LHC 13 TeV data and XENON-1T results
In the natural realization of the next-to-minimal supersymmetric Standard Model, Higgsinos tend to be lighter than about several hundred GeVs, which can induce detectable leptonic signals at the LHC
Natural NMSSM after LHC Run I and the Higgsino dominated dark matter scenario
A bstractWe investigate the impact of the direct searches for SUSY at LHC Run I on the naturalness of the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM). For this end, we first scan the vast
Present status and future tests of the higgsino-singlino sector in the NMSSM
A bstractThe light higgsino-singlino scenario of the NMSSM allows to combine a naturally small μ parameter with a good dark matter relic density. Given the new constraints on spin-dependent and
NMSSM interpretations of the observed Higgs signal
A bstractWhile the properties of the signal that was discovered in the Higgs searches at the LHC are consistent so far with the Higgs boson of the Standard Model (SM), it is crucial to investigate to
Status and prospects of the nMSSM after LHC Run-1
A bstractThe new minimal supersymmetric standard model (nMSSM), a variant of the general next to minimal supersymmetric standard model (NMSSM) without Z3 symmetry, features a naturally light singlino
Can neutralinos in the MSSM and NMSSM scenarios still be light
Since the recent results of direct detection experiments at low mass, many authors have revisited the case of light (1–10) GeV weakly interacting massive particles. In particular, there have been a
Role of the ‘N’ in the natural NMSSM for the LHC
In this work, we present mass limits on gluinos and stops in a natural Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM) with a singlino as the lightest supersymmetric particle. Motivated by
Excessive Higgs pair production with little MET from squarks and gluinos in the NMSSM
A bstractIn the presence of a light singlino-like LSP in the NMSSM, the missing transverse energy — MET — signature of squark/gluino production can be considerably reduced. Instead, a pair of Higgs
