A possible return on race

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


Decay chains

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


Supersymmetry searches

As discussed before, SUSY theories introduce the existence of particles at the TeV scale, so these could be already accessible at the .

The search for these particles and the determination of their properties, such as mass, spin, etc. 434 more words


Local Supersymmetry

As already seen, the MSSM contains a high number of degrees of freedom.

The impossibility to have guidelines on how build a theory leads to models that consider the Supersymmetry as a local symmetry spontaneously broken at different scales with respect to the weak one. 283 more words


Particles and forces

Beyond the force that holds us back in bed in the morning, there are other four fundamental forces, in Nature.

At the present state of our knowledge, Nature is presented as the result of the composition of the four fundamental interactions ( 148 more words

The Tevatron: 28 years of discovery and innovation (CERN's older brother)

Note: CERN isn’t the only particle accelerator in operation, there are several allegedly operating “in the name of science” around the world.

The Tevatron, the world’s highest-energy proton-antiproton collider, shut down on Sept. 244 more words
