    High-Mass Supersymmetry with High Energy Hadron Colliders

    Full text link
    While it is natural for supersymmetric particles to be well within the mass range of the large hadron collider, it is possible that the sparticle masses could be very heavy. Signatures are examined at a very high energy hadron collider and an very high luminosity option for the Large Hadron Collider in such scenarios

    Measurements in Gauge Mediated SUSY Breaking Models at LHC

    Characteristic examples are presented of scenarios of particle production and decay in supersymmetry models in which the supersymmetry breaking is transmitted to the observable world via gauge interactions. The cases are chosen to illustrate the main classes of LHC phenomenology that can arise in these models. A new technique is illustrated that allows the full reconstruction of supersymmetry events despite the presence of two unobserved particles. This technique enables superparticle masses to be measured directly rather than being inferred from kinematic distributions. It is demonstrated that the LHC is capable of making sufficient measurements so as to severely over-constrain the model and determine the parameters with great precisionComment: 45 pages, 35 Figure

    Lepton Flavor Violation at the LHC

    Get PDF
    Recent results from Super Kamiokande suggest νμντ\nu_\mu-\nu_\tau mixing and hence lepton flavor violation. In supersymmetric models, this flavor violation may have implications for the pattern of slepton masses and mixings. Possible signals for this mixing in the decays of sleptons produced at the LHC are discussed. The sensitivity expected is compared to that of rare decays such as τμγ\tau\to \mu\gamma.Comment: 14 pages, 9 figure

    Measurements in SUGRA Models with Large tan beta at LHC

    Full text link
    We present an example of a scenario of particle production and decay in supersymmetry models in which the supersymmetry breaking is transmitted to the observable world via gravitational interactions. The case is chosen so that there is a large production of tau leptons in the final state. It is characteristic of large tan beta in that decays into muons and electrons may be suppressed. It is shown that hadronic tau decays can be used to reconstruct final states.Comment: 15 pages, 12 figure

    Universality in the Electroproduction of Vector Mesons

    Full text link
    We study universality in the electroproduction of vector mesons using a unified nonperturbative approach which has already proved to reproduce extremely well the available experimental data. In this framework, after the extraction of factors that are specific of each vector meson, we arrive at a reduced integrated elastic cross section which is universal. Our calculations suggest a finite infrared behavior for the strong coupling constant.Comment: 22 pages, 10 figure

    Signals of Supersymmetric Lepton Flavor Violation at the LHC

    Get PDF
    In a generic supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model, there will be lepton flavor violation at a neutral gaugino vertex due to misalignment between the lepton Yukawa couplings and the slepton soft masses. Sleptons produced at the LHC through the cascade decays of squarks and gluinos can give a sizable number of events with 4 leptons. This channel could give a clean signature of supersymmetric lepton flavor violation under conditions which are identified.Comment: 21 page

    Constraining CP Violating Phases of the MSSM

    Full text link
    Possible CP violation in supersymmetric (SUSY) extensions of the Standard Model (SM) is discussed. The consequences of CP violating phases in the gaugino masses, trilinear soft supersymmetry-breaking terms and the `mu' parameter are explored. Utilizing the constraints on these parameters from electron and neutron electric dipole moments, possible CP violating effects in B-physics are shown. A set of measurements from the B-system which would overconstrain the above CP violating phases is illustrated.Comment: 14 pages, 6 figure

    Photon deflection by a Coulomb field in noncommutative QED

    Full text link
    In noncommutative QED photons present self-interactions in the form of triple and quartic interactions. The triple interaction implies that, even though the photon is electrically neutral, it will deflect when in the presence of an electromagnetic field. If detected, such deflection would be an undoubted signal of noncommutative space-time. In this work we derive the general expression for the deflection of a photon by any electromagnetic field. As an application we consider the case of the deflection of a photon by an external static Coulomb field.Comment: 07 pages, some typos corrected, accepted for publication in JP
