John Bradmiller-Feld (UCSB) "An Inclusive and Generic Search for Supersymmetry in the Multijet + Missing Momentum Final State Performed on pp Collision Data Collected with the CMS Detector"

November 22, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

For the past two years, the LHC has collided protons at a record-high center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. This time has provided an opportunity to search for beyond standard model particles at the TeV scale, including those predicted by supersymmetry, with unprecedented sensitivity.  I will present an overview of a generic search for strongly-produced supersymmetric particles in pp collisions in the multijet + missing transverse momentum final state. The data sample corresponds to 12.9 fb-1 recorded by the CMS experiment in 2016. I will review the theoretical and experimental motivation for this search, then describe the central challenges of the analysis, namely the data-driven measurements of the standard model backgrounds. Finally, I will summarize the results of the analysis, and look ahead to possible directions for this and similar searches in the coming years.
