Description

We present an inclusive search for supersymmetry with the razor kinematic variables performed using a data sample of proton-proton collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb-1 collected with the CMS experiment in 2016 at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The search covers final states with zero or one lepton, and features event categories divided according to the number of jets, the number of b-tagged jets, and the values of the razor kinematic variables in order to separate signal from background for a wide variety of supersymmetric particle signatures. Dedicated search categories containing events consistent with a high-transverse momentum hadronic W boson or top quark decay increase the sensitivity to signal models with large mass splitting between the produced gluino or squark and the lightest supersymmetric particle. The results are interpreted in the context of simplified models of gluino or top squark pair production.
