Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Very Light Stops at the LHC
Time: 2:15 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: David Morrissey, TRIUMF
Abstract: Supersymmetry can stabilize the weak scale against quantum corrections, produce a viable dark matter candidate, and provide an explanation for the excess of matter over antimatter. If supersymmetry is realized in Nature, for every known particle there exists a superpartner particle differing in spin by half a unit. Stops, the spin-zero superpartners of the top quark, play a key role in determining the phenomenological signals of supersymmetry. In this talk I will discuss the many reasons why at least one of the stops might have a mass only slightly above the weak scale, and I will describe some of the ways that such a light stop can be searched for and discovered at the LHC.
