Supersymmetry Phenomenology

  title={Supersymmetry Phenomenology},
  author={Hitoshi Murayama},
This is a very pedagogical review of supersymmetry phenomenology, given at ICTP Summer School in 1999, aimed mostly at students who had never studied supersymmetry before. It starts with an analogy that the reason why supersymmetry is needed is similar to the reason why the positron exists. It introduces the construction of supersymmetric Lagrangians in a practical way. The low-energy constraints, renormalization-group analyses, collider phenomenology, and frameworks of mediating supersymmetry… Expand
Supersymmetry facing experiment: much ado (already) about nothing (yet)
This report emphasizes the comparison between supersymmetric models and experiments. A minimal theoretical introduction is included as a guide to the interpretation of results. The existingExpand
Search for Supersymmetry in Leptonic Final States with the CMS Detector
This dissertation describes a number of searches for yet undiscovered particles predicted by theories beyond the standard model of particle physics. The searches have been carried out with 35.9 fb−1Expand
Dark Matter in Supersymmetric theories
In this thesis is performed an analysis of supersymmetric dark matter candidates in the framework of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) which is the supersymmetric extension of theExpand
Search for Weak Gaugino Production in Final States With One Lepton, Two B-Jets Consistent With a Higgs Boson, and Missing Transverse Momentum With the ATLAS Detector
The ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider is a discovery machine that is able to probe into the multi-TeV scale and search for physics beyond the Standard Model. This thesis presents a searchExpand
Studies of low-energy effective actions in supersymmetric field theories
This thesis examines low-energy effective actions of supersymmetric quantum field theories. These actions contain information about the low-energy field content and dynamics of quantum field theoriesExpand
Search for chargino and neutralino at Run II of the Tevatron Collider
In this dissertation we present a search for the associated production of charginos and neutralinos, the supersymmetric partners of the Standard Model bosons. We analyze a data sample representingExpand
Supersymmetry Search in Multilepton Final States with Taus Using the CMS Detector at the LHC
This dissertation presents a search for SUperSYmmetry (SUSY) in multilepton final states with a data set corresponding to 34.9 pb−1 collected in 2010 with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector atExpand
Naturalness, the autonomy of scales, and the 125 GeV Higgs
Abstract The recent discovery of the Higgs at 125 GeV by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC has put significant pressure on a principle which has guided much theorizing in high energy physicsExpand
Bringing the Higgs Boson to Rest
Within the Standard Model of particle physics, the Higgs boson can decay to a pair of W bosons which decay leptonically. Despite its relatively large branching ratio, this is a challenging channel inExpand
Determining fermion masses and resolving the problem of generations: A clue to incorporate Gravity into the Standard Model
Inspired by the Poincare model of the electron, elementary fermions are assumed to be bubble like structures with negative internal pressure and a size corresponding to a radius or equivalently anExpand
