Searching for supersymmetry scalelessly.

Schlaffer, Matthias and Spannowsky, Michael and Weiler, Andreas (2016) 'Searching for supersymmetry scalelessly.', European physical journal C., 76 (8). p. 457.


In this paper we propose a scale invariant search strategy for hadronic top or bottom plus missing energy final states. We present a method which shows flat efficiencies and background rejection factors over broad ranges of parameters and masses. The resulting search can easily be recast into a limit on alternative models. We show the strength of the method in a natural SUSY setup where stop and sbottom squarks are pair produced and decay into hadronically decaying top quarks or bottom quarks and higgsinos.
