Classification of jets with deep learning has gained significant attention in
recent times. However, the performance of deep neural networks is often
achieved at the cost of interpretability. Here we propose an interpretable
network trained on the...

We explore signatures related to squark decays in the framework of
non-minimally flavour-violating Supersymmetry. We consider a simplified model

In models where the gravitino is the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP),
the next-to-lightest supersymmetric particle (NLSP) is long-lived. We consider
an important charged NLSP candidate, the scalar tau Tex. Slow
charged NLSPs may ...

In the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) properties of the third
generation sfermions are important from the viewpoint of discriminating the
SUSY breaking models and in the determination of the Higgs boson mass. If
gluinos are copiously...

At the LHC, superpartners with the masses lighter than a few TeV may be
found, and the masses of the supersymmetric (SUSY) particles and their
interactions will be studied. The information would be the base to consider the
SUSY breaking mechanism ...

In this paper we study the gauge mediation signal with the ATLAS detector at
the CERN LHC. We focus on the case where the NLSP is the long-lived lightest
neutralino (Tex) which decays dominantly into a photon
(Tex) and a gravit...

If the Dark Matter (DM) in the Universe has interactions with the
standard-model particle, the pair annihilation may give the imprints in the
cosmic ray. In this paper we study the pair annihilation processes of the DM,
which is neutral, however h...

In supersymmetric models a gluino can decay into Tex
through a stop or a sbottom. The decay chain produces an edge structure in the
Tex distribution. Monte Carlo simulation studies show that the end point
and the edge hei...

We show that LHC experiments might well be able to determine all the
parameters required for a prediction of the present density of thermal LSP
relics from the Big Bang era. If the LSP is an almost pure bino we usually only
need to determine its m...

The neutralino pair annihilation into two photons in our galactic halo gives
a robust dark matter signal, since it would give a quasi-monotonic gamma ray.
This process is radiatively-induced, and the full-one loop calculation was done
previously. ...

We present a pedagogical introduction to supersymmetry and supersymmetric
models and give an overview of the potential of the linear collider for
studying them. If supersymmetry is found, its discovery will bring with it many
more questions than a...

Measurement of Lepton-Flavor Violation (LFV) in the minimal SUSY Standard
Model (MSSM) at Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is studied based on a realistic

The gauge-mediated SUSY-breaking (GMSB) model needs entropy production at a
relatively low temperature in the thermal history of the Universe for the
unwanted relics to be diluted. This requires a mechanism for the baryogenesis
after the entropy p...

The Super-Kamiokande atmospheric neutrino data suggest existence of the large

Recently it has been realized that the production and decay processes of
charginos, neutralinos, and sleptons receive corrections which grow like log
m_squark for large m_squark. In this paper we calculate the chargino pair
production cross sectio...
