SUSY Searches with Jets and Missing Transverse Momentum: Lost Lepton Background and Results — Samuel Bein1, •Simon Kurz1, Marek Niedziela1, Christian Sander2, Peter Schleper1, and Jory Sonneveld1 — 1Institut für Experimentalphysik, Universität Hamburg — 2DESY
Supersymmetry (SUSY) is one of the most promising extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics (SM), since it provides solutions of various shortcomings of the Standard Model. In many SUSY models final states with jets, no electrons or muons and large amounts of missing transverse energy are expected.
An important part of the SM background arises from events where a neutrino is produced and the associated electron or muon is “lost”, i.e. out of acceptance, not reconstructed or not isolated. The talk focuses on a data-driven prediction of this background.
Furthermore, an overview of a search for SUSY is provided in which this background estimation method is used and its performance is illustrated.
