There were only a couple of tasks for Wednesday. First, I would be attending the first group meeting. Erroneously called “SUSY” meetings (for supersymmetry, a branch of high energy physics with declining popularity), these meetings are a chance for each member of the group to share what they had done over the last week, if anything, and bring up any issues. 281 more words

Third generation superparticles search is one of the main goals of the present LHC activities.
Previous LHC data has been especially effective in ruling out the existence of coloured supersymmetric particles (primarily the gluino and the first two generations of s-quarks) with masses below . 433 more words
As the production of s-quarks and gluinos is favored if kinematically allowed, these particles would start the decay chain in most cases. In the case in which such superparticles were relatively light, the decay chain would be short, and the subsequent possible decays should be few. 196 more words
