Decay chains

As the production of s-quarks and gluinos is favored if kinematically allowed, these particles would start the decay chain in most cases. In the case in which such superparticles were relatively light, the decay chain would be short, and the subsequent possible decays should be few. Instead, if s-quarks and gluinos were very massive, it … Continue reading Decay chains

Supersymmetry searches

As discussed before, SUSY theories introduce the existence of particles at the TeV scale, so these could be already accessible at the . The search for these particles and the determination of their properties, such as mass, spin, etc. and their coupling becomes of central importance in order to verify the existence of new Physics … Continue reading Supersymmetry searches

Beyond the Standard Model

After the discovery of a Higgs boson, all the particles included in the SM have been experimentally observed. Despite its extraordinary phenomenological success, the SM is considered an incomplete theory. It manifests some theoretical underlying problems which suggest the need for a "deeper" theory of which the Standard Model could be just an effectual theory. Furthermore, … Continue reading Beyond the Standard Model
