Larry Lee (Harvard) "Searches for Sneaky SUSY at the ATLAS Experiment"

August 17, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

ABSTRACT:
Despite the lack of a sparticle discovery at the Large Hadron Collider, and despite the fact that most of the discovery potential has shriveled to an upsetting size, supersymmetry (SUSY) remains the most motivated solution to the Standard Model’s inadequacies. Because of this (and a large dose of stubbornness), we are forced to consider ways the nominal search strategy may have missed a discovery. Must SUSY present itself with lots of high-momentum objects and large missing transverse energy just because it’d be easy to find? This talk will discuss recent SUSY searches at ATLAS targeting signatures without large missing transverse energy as well as those sensitive to long-lived sparticles.
