Event Details

With the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the standard model of particle physics is conceptually complete, yet there remain profound puzzles and problems that it does not address. These include the existence of astrophysical dark matter, the possibility of gauge coupling constant unification at high energy, and the so-called gauge hierarchy problem. Supersymmetry (SUSY) at the TeV scale can in principle address all of these issues, but there is no evidence so far for SUSY particles. I present an introduction to SUSY phenomenology for the non-expert, a detailed example of a Run 2 SUSY search from the CMS experiment in the channel with 1 lepton + jets + missing transverse momentum, and results from CMS studies of the sensitivity of SUSY searches at the high-luminosity LHC.
