We begin a systematic study of how gaugino mass unification can be probed at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in a quasi-model independent manner. As a first step in that direction we focus our attention on the theoretically well-motivated mirage pattern of gaugino masses, a one-parameter family of models of which universal (high scale) gaugino masses are a limiting case. We improve on previous methods to define an analytic expression for the metric on signature space and use it to study… 
The Footprint of F-theory at the LHC
Recent work has shown that compactifications of F-theory provide a potentially attractive phenomenological scenario. The low energy characteristics of F-theory GUTs consist of a deformation away from
Gluino NLSP, Dark Matter via Gluino Coannihilation, and LHC Signatures
The possibility that the gluino is the next to the lightest supersymmetric particle (NLSP) is discussed and it is shown that this situation arises in nonuniversal supergravity models within a
Stau coannihilation, compressed spectrum, and SUSY discovery potential at the LHC
The lack of observation of supersymmetry thus far implies that the weak supersymmetry scale is larger than what was thought before the LHC era. This observation is strengthened by the Higgs boson
Supergravity models with 50–100 TeV scalars, supersymmetry discovery at the LHC, and gravitino decay constraints
We investigate the possibility of testing supergravity unified models with scalar masses in the range 50-100 TeV and much lighter gaugino masses at the Large Hadron Collider. The analysis is carried
Landscape of supersymmetric particle mass hierarchies in deflected mirage mediation
With the aim of uncovering viable regions of parameter space in deflected mirage mediation (DMM) models of supersymmetry breaking, we study the landscape of particle mass hierarchies for the lightest
Dark matter prospects in deflected mirage mediation
The recently introduced deflected mirage mediation (DMM) model is a string-motivated paradigm in which all three of the major supersymmetry-breaking transmission mechanisms are operative. We begin a


Connecting (supersymmetry) CERN LHC measurements with high scale theories
If supersymmetry is discovered at the LHC, the measured spectrum of superpartner masses and couplings will allow us to probe the origins of supersymmetry breaking. However, to connect the
Sparticles at the LHC
Sparticle mass hierarchies will play an important role in the type of signatures that will be visible at the Large Hadron Collider. We analyze these hierarchies for the four lightest sparticles for a
Non-universal gaugino masses: a signal-based analysis for the Large Hadron Collider
We discuss the signals at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for scenarios with non-universal gaugino masses in supersymmetric (SUSY) theories. We perform a multichannel analysis, and consider the
General features of supersymmetric signals at the ILC: Solving the CERN LHC inverse problem
We present the first detailed, large-scale study of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) at the {radical}(s)=500 GeV International Linear Collider (ILC), including full standard model
Phenomenological indications of the scale of supersymmetry
Electroweak precision measurements can provide indirect information about the possible scale of supersymmetry already at the present level of accuracy. We update the present-day sensitivities of
Moduli stabilization and supersymmetry breaking in deflected mirage mediation
We present a model of supersymmetry breaking in which the contributions from gravity/modulus, anomaly, and gauge mediation are all comparable. We term this scenario ``deflected mirage mediation'',
Supersymmetry and the LHC inverse problem
Given experimental evidence at the LHC for physics beyond the standard model, how can we determine the nature of the underlying theory? We initiate an approach to studying the ``inverse map from the
Gaugino mass without singlets
In models with dynamical supersymmetry breaking in the hidden sector, the gaugino masses in the observable sector have been believed to be extremely suppressed (below 1 keV), unless there is a gauge
