Multilepton searches for electroweakino and slepton pair production at hadron colliders remain some of the best means to test weak-scale supersymmetry. Searches at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, however, are limited by large diboson and top quark pair backgrounds, despite the application of traditional, central jet vetoes. In this context, we report the impact of introducing dynamic jet vetoes in searches for colorless superpartners. As a representative scenario, we consider the Drell-Yan…

Motivated by searches for so-called leptonic scalars at the LHC and the recent measurement of the W boson’s mass at the Tevatron, we revisit the phenomenology of the Zee-Babu model for neutrino

Probing the Weinberg operator at colliders

Motivated by searches for 0 νββ decay in nuclear experiments and collider probes of lepton number violation at dimension d ≥ 7 , we investigate the sensitivity to the d ¼ 5 Weinberg operator using

Hunting for scalar lepton partners at future electron colliders

New physics close to the electroweak scale is well motivated by a number of theoretical arguments. However, colliders, most notably the Large Hadron Collider, have failed to deliver evidence for

Automated simulations beyond the Standard Model: supersymmetry

This paper extends the FeynRules package by giving it the possibility of dealing with different renormalisation options that are relevant to supersymmetric models, and shows how to deal with the problem posed by the presence of narrow resonances, thus generalising the so-called on-shell subtraction approaches.

Majorana neutrinos in same-sign W±W± scattering at the LHC: Breaking the TeV barrier

We revisit the sensitivity to non-resonant, heavy Majorana neutrinos $N$ in same-sign $W^\pm W^\pm$ scattering at the $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV LHC and its high-luminosity upgrade. As a benchmark scenario,

Boosted decision trees in the era of new physics: a smuon analysis case study

Machine learning algorithms are growing increasingly popular in particle physics analyses, where they are used for their ability to solve difficult classification and regression problems. While the

Impact of jet veto resummation on slepton searches

A bstractSeveral searches for new physics at the LHC require a fixed number of signal jets, vetoing events with additional jets from QCD radiation. As the probed scale of new physics gets much larger

Direct stau production at hadron colliders in cosmologically motivated scenarios

We calculate dominant cross section contributions for stau pair production at hadron colliders within the MSSM, taking into account left-right mixing of the stau eigenstates. We find that b-quark

A comprehensive framework for studying W′ and Z′ bosons at hadron colliders with automated jet veto resummation

A bstractThe production of high-mass, color-singlet particles in hadron collisions is universally accompanied by initial state QCD radiation that is predominantly soft with respect to the hard

Precision predictions for electroweak superpartner production at hadron colliders with Resummino

We describe the Resummino package, a C++ and Fortran program dedicated to precision calculations in the framework of gaugino and slepton pair production at hadron colliders. This code allows to

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

Factorization and NNLL Resummation for Higgs production with a jet veto

A bstractUsing methods of effective field theory, we derive the first all-order factorization theorem for the Higgs-boson production cross section with a jet veto, imposed by means of a standard

Search for the electroweak production of supersymmetric particles in √s = 8 TeV pp collisions with the ATLAS detector

The ATLAS experiment has performed extensive searches for the electroweak production of charginos, neutralinos and staus. This article summarizes and extends the search for electroweak supersymmetry

Signals for minimal supergravity at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. II. Multilepton channels.

Measurements of the various topological cross sections, jet, and {ital B}-hadron multiplicities in these events, together with the charge asymmetry for singlemore » lepton and same-sign dilepton events, and flavor asymmetric for opposite-sign dilemma events, serve to narrow the allowed range of underlying SUGRA parameter values.

Explanation of the $WW$ excess at the LHC by jet-veto resummation

The WW production cross section measured at the LHC has been consistently exhibiting a mild excess beyond the SM prediction, in both ATLAS and CMS at both 7-TeV and 8-TeV runs. We provide an
