Description

We present the analysis of the signature jj+missing-ET(+X) via squark-squark production and direct decay into the lightest neutralino in next-to-leading order QCD within the framework of the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model. We provide a consistent, fully differential calculation of NLO QCD factorizable corrections to the given processes with on-shell squarks. Clustering final states into partonic jets, we investigate the experimental inclusive signature jj+missing-ET and we choose for illustration several benchmark scenarios. We compare resulting differential distributions with leading-order approximation rescaled by a flat K-factor and examine a possible impact for cut-and-count searches for supersymmetry at the LHC.
