Interpreting a CMS $lljjp_T^{\rm miss}$ Excess With the Golden Cascade of the MSSM

  title={Interpreting a CMS \$lljjp\_T^\{\rm miss\}\$ Excess With the Golden Cascade of the MSSM},
  author={Benjamin C. Allanach and Anders Kvellestad and A. R. Raklev},
CMS recently reported an excess consistent with an invariant mass edge in opposite-sign same flavor (OSSF) leptons, when produced in conjunction with at least two jets and missing transverse momentum. We provide an interpretation of the edge in terms of (anti-)squark pair production followed by the ‘golden cascade’ decay for one of the squarks: q̃ → χ̃02q → l̃lq → χ̃ 0 1qll in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). A simplified model involving binos, winos, an on-shell slepton, and…

CMS has searched for supersymmetry using the full dataset recorded until the end of 2012, at a centerof-mass energy of 8 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20 fb-1. The observations are
Aspects of astrophysical particle production and beyond the Standard Model phenomenology
This PhD thesis deals with various aspects of (astro)particle physics phenomenology and consists out of two parts: beyond the Standard Model physics and neutrino astronomy. In the first part, I focus
