Description

A search for supersymmetry is carried out in proton-proton collisions with a center of mass energy of 13 TeV and an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb−1 collected with the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. Events are selected by requiring one Higgs boson candidate decaying into two photons in association with at least one jet. Events are categorized according to the properties of the Higgs boson candidate(s) and H(Z)bb candidate(s). The razor variables (MR and R^2) are used to improve discrimination between SUSY signals and the standard model backgrounds. The search is carried out by fitting the diphoton invariant mass distribution in each search region. The results of the search are interpreted in the context SUSY simplified models of bottom squark production and electroweak productions.
