Third generation in cascade decays Academic Article uri icon


  • 2015 American Physical Society. In supersymmetric models with gluinos m(g)1000-2000GeV, new physics searches based on cascade decay products of the gluino are viable at the next run of the LHC. We investigate a scenario where the light stop is lighter than the gluino and both are lighter than all other squarks, and show that its signal can be established using multi b-jet, multi W and/or multi-lepton final state topologies. We then utilize both boosted and conventional jet topologies in the final state in conjunction with di-tau production as a probe of the stau-neutralino coannihilation region responsible for the model's dark matter content. This study is performed in the specific context of one such phenomenologically viable model named no-scale F-SU(5).
