Wednesday Afternoon: Physics Beyond the Standard Model
- Freya Blekman (IIHE, Vrije Universiteit Brussel (BE))
A key research question at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the test of models of new physics. Testing if a particular parameter set of such a model is excluded by LHC data is a challenge: it requires time consuming generation of scattering events, simulation of the detector response, event reconstruction, cross section calculations and analysis code to test against several hundred signal...

The most basic requirement for naturalness in supersymmetric models is the
existence of rather light partners of the Higgs boson, the Higgsinos, at
masses not too far above M_Z. Despite the pressure from LHC data on the simplest
high-scale models (like the cMSSM), such light Higgsinos can still be
realised in different types of GUT-scale models from NUHM2 to mirage
unification models. The ILC...
A search is presented for physics beyond the standard model in final states with two opposite-sign, same-flavor leptons, jets, and missing transverse mo- mentum. The data sample corresponds to dataset of proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in 2016. The analysis uses the invariant mass of the lepton pair, searching for a kinematic edge or a...
The interpretation of Large Hadron Collider (LHC) data in the framework of Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) theories is hampered by the need to run computationally expensive event generators and detector simulators. Performing statistically convergent scans of high-dimensional BSM theories is consequently challenging, and in practice unfeasible for very high-dimensional BSM theories. We have...
