We investigate the model independent nature of the Supersymmetry search strategies at the 7 TeV LHC. To this end, we study the missing-transverse-energy-based searches developed by the ATLAS Collaboration that were essentially designed for mSUGRA. We simulate the signals for {approx} 71k models in the 19-dimensional parameter space of the pMSSM. These models have been found to satisfy existing experimental and theoretical constraints and provide insight into general features of the MSSM without… 
More energy, more searches, but the phenomenological MSSM lives on
We further examine the capability of the 7 and 8 TeV LHC to explore the parameter space of the p(henomenological)MSSM with neutralino LSPs. Here we present an updated study employing all of the
Constraints on the pMSSM from searches for squarks and gluinos by ATLAS
A bstractWe study the impact of the jets and missing transverse momentum SUSY anal- yses of the ATLAS experiment on the phenomenological MSSM (pMSSM). We investigate sets of SUSY models with a flat
Constraints on Higgs Properties and SUSY Partners in the pMSSM
Direct searches for superpartners and precision measurements of the properties of the 126 GeV Higgs boson lead to important inter-dependent constraints on the underlying parameter space of the MSSM.
Interpretations of SUSY Searches in ATLAS with Simplified Models
We present the status of interpretations of Supersymmetry (SUSY) searches in ATLAS at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) using simplified models. Such models allow a systematic scan through the phase
Phenomenological MSSM interpretation of LHC results using rernormalization group invariants
The LHC has started to constrain supersymmetry-breaking parameters by setting bounds on possible colored particles at the weak scale. Moreover, constraints from Higgs physics, flavor physics, the
Higgs boson coupling measurements and direct searches as complementary probes of the phenomenological MSSM
The parameter space of the MSSM can be probed via many avenues, such as by pre- cision measurements of the couplings of the ~126 GeV Higgs boson, as well as the direct searches for SUSY partners. We
Complementarity of dark matter searches in the phenomenological MSSM
As is well known, the search for and eventual identification of dark matter in supersymmetry requires a simultaneous, multi-pronged approach with important roles played by the LHC as well as both
The new look pMSSM with neutralino and gravitino LSPs
The pMSSM provides a broad perspective on SUSY phenomenology. In this paper we generate two new, very large, sets of pMSSM models with sparticle masses extending up to 4 TeV, where the lightest
Phenomenological minimal supersymmetric standard model dark matter searches on ice
We explore the capability of the IceCube/Deepcore array to discover signal neutrinos resulting from the annihilations of Supersymmetric WIMPS that may be captured in the solar core. In this analysis,


Supersymmetry without prejudice at the LHC
The discovery and exploration of Supersymmetry in a model-independent fashion will be a daunting task due to the large number of soft-breaking parameters in the MSSM. In this paper, we explore the
Supersymmetry Without Prejudice
We begin an exploration of the physics associated with the general CP-conserving MSSM with Minimal Flavor Violation, the pMSSM. The 19 soft SUSY breaking parameters in this scenario are chosen so as
Implications of initial LHC searches for supersymmetry
The CMS and ATLAS Collaborations have recently published the results of initial direct LHC searches for supersymmetry analyzing ∼35/pb of data taken at 7 TeV in the centre of mass. We incorporate
Predictive signatures of supersymmetry: Measuring the dark matter mass and gluino mass with early LHC data
We present a focused study of a predictive unified model whose measurable consequences are immediately relevant to early discovery prospects of supersymmetry at the LHC. ATLAS and CMS have released
Simplified models for a first characterization of new physics at the LHC
Low-energy SUSY and several other theories that address the hierarchy problem predict pair-production at the LHC of particles with Standard Model quantum numbers that decay to jets, missing energy,
Fine-tuning implications for complementary dark matter and LHC SUSY searches
The requirement that SUSY should solve the hierarchy problem without undue fine-tuning imposes severe constraints on the new supersymmetric states. With the MSSM spectrum and soft SUSY breaking
Search for supersymmetry in pp collisions at √7 TeV in events with two photons and missing transverse energy.
Upper limits on the signal cross section for general gauge-mediated supersymmetry between 0.3 and 1.1 pb at the 95% confidence level are determined for a range of squark, gluino, and neutralino masses, excluding supersymmetric parameter space that was inaccessible to previous experiments.
Light Squarks and Gluinos at TeV-scale $e^+e^-$ Colliders
In the general MSSM, first and second generation squarks and gluinos may be sufficiently light to be produced and studied at e{sup +}e{sup -} colliders operating in the 0.5-1 TeV energy range. After
