Description

We examine scenarios in the Next to Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model where squarks and gluinos decay via various two cascades, each ending in a stable neutralino LSP and a standard model Higgs with the mass gaps in the decay such that the Missing Transverse Energy is very small. Performing two-dimensional parameter scans and focusing on the hadronic $h\rightarrow b\bar{b}$ decay giving a $b\bar{b}b\bar{b}$ + MET final state we then explore the sensitivity of a current CMS $\alpha_{\text{T}}$-based general-purpose jets+MET analysis to such scenarios with a view to developing novel search approaches in the near future.
What would be the preferred length of your talk? 20 minutes + questions
