Oral Presentation Beyond the Standard Model Beyond the Standard Model


Kilian Rosbach (Universität Freiburg (DE))


Naturalness arguments for weak-scale supersymmetry favour supersymmetric partners of the third generation quarks with masses not too far from those of their Standard Model counterparts. Top or bottom squarks with masses of a few hundred GeV can also give rise to large direct pair production rates at the LHC. The recent increase in the center of mass energy of the proton-proton collisions gives a unique opportunity to extend the sensitivity to production of supersymmetric particles at the Large Hadron Collider. The talk presents recent ATLAS results from searches for direct stop and sbottom pair production, with emphasis on those obtained using proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV.
