Inclusive Search for Squark and Gluino Production in pp¯ Collisions at s=1.96 TeV Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We report on a search for inclusive production of squarks and gluinos in pp[over ] collisions at sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV, in events with large missing transverse energy and multiple jets of hadrons in the final state. The study uses a CDF Run II data sample corresponding to 2 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity. The data are in good agreement with the standard model predictions, giving no evidence for any squark or gluino component. In an R-parity conserving minimal supergravity scenario with A(0)=0, mu<0, and tanbeta=5, 95% C.L. upper limits on the production cross sections in the range between 0.1 and 1 pb are obtained, depending on the squark and gluino masses considered. For gluino masses below 280 GeV/c(2), arbitrarily large squark masses are excluded at the 95% C.L., while for mass degenerate gluinos and squarks, masses below 392 GeV/c(2) are excluded at the 95% C.L.
