Search for Supersymmetry in final states with two opposite-sign same-flavor leptons, jets, and pTmiss in pp collisions at √s=13 TeV with the CMS experiment — •Christian Schomakers, Christian Autermann, Lutz Feld, and Marius Teroerde — 1. Physikalisches Institut B, RWTH Aachen University
One of the main purposes of the LHC is the search for new physics which is predicted by theories such as Supersymmetry (SUSY) and is necessary to solve several problems of the standard model. Cascade decays of SUSY particles often yield final states with hadronic activity and missing transverse energy. Signatures including leptons are of particular interest since standard model background processes are suppressed by this selection and can be predicted with good accuracy.
The invariant dilepton mass distribution can provide further information on possible decays of SUSY particles e.g. the mass difference between particles in the decay chain.
This talk covers the CMS SUSY dilepton edge search on the full dataset of 2016. Improvements with respect to previous searches have been made to cope with the large background statistics and the sensitivity to certain SUSY models was increased significantly.
