Several ideas exist on how the stringent mass limits from LHC on new colored particles can be avoided. One idea are the so-called “stealth” scenarios in which missing transversal energy (ET) is avoided due a peculiar mass configuration. It is usually assumed that the cascade decay of the dominantly produced colored particle finishes in a two-body decay, where this mass configuration leads to a very small amount of ET. We discuss here the potential impact of other decay channels, either loop…

Stealth supersymmetry
We present a broad class of supersymmetric models that preserve R-parity but lack missing energy signatures. These models are significantly less constrained than traditional supersymmetry by emerging
Exploring sensitivity to NMSSM signatures with low missing transverse energy at the LHC
A bstractWe examine scenarios in the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM), where pair-produced squarks and gluinos decay via two cascades, each ending in a stable neutralino as
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
Light stop searches at the LHC with monojet events
We consider light top squarks (stops) in the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider. Here, we assume that the lightest neutralino is the lightest supersymmetric particle
R-parity violation at the LHC
We investigate the phenomenology of the MSSM extended by a single R-parity-violating coupling at the unification scale. For all R-parity-violating couplings, we discuss the evolution of the particle
Constraints on the R-Parity-violating minimal supersymmetric standard model with neutrino masses from multilepton studies at the LHC
In a recent paper, we proposed a hierarchical ansatz for the lepton-number-violating trilinear Yukawa couplings of the R-parity violating minimal supersymmetric standard model. As a result, the
Light stop searches at the LHC in events with one hard photon or jet and missing energy
Low energy supersymmetric models provide a solution to the hierarchy problem and also have the necessary ingredients to solve two of the most outstanding issues in cosmology: the origin of the baryon
Light stop searches at the LHC in events with two b jets and missing energy
We propose a new method to discover light top squarks (stops) in the co-annihilation region at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The bino-like neutralino is the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP)
NMSSM with a singlino LSP: possible challenges for searches for supersymmetry at the LHC
A bstractA light singlino in the NMSSM can reduce considerably the missing transverse energy at the end of sparticle decay cascades; instead, light NMSSM-specific Higgs bosons can be produced. Such
