Multilepton signatures of gauge mediated SUSY breaking at CERN LEP II
Additional Document Info
In the framework of gauge-mediated supersymmetry breaking models, pair production of the lightest neutralinos, scalar leptons, or charginos at CERN LEP II gives rise to interesting signals involving multilepton final states and missing energy. In the parameter space where the scalar tau, [Formula Presented], is the next-to-lightest supersymmetric particle, we identify three interesting regions, which give rise to distinctly different final states: (i) 2 [Formula Presented]-leptons plus missing energy, (ii) 4 charged leptons plus missing energy, where in some regions all four are [Formula Presented]-leptons, or (iii) six charged leptons, of which four are [Formula Presented]-leptons and the other two are electrons or muons, plus missing energy. We study in detail the size of these regions in the parameter space of gauge-mediated models and give cross section contours in these regions for various LEP II energies. We also discuss the possibility of chargino-pair production at LEP II. 1998 The American Physical Society.
