Most theories that predict dark matter production at colliders rely on weakly coupled dark matter and the existence of WIMPs, or weakly interacting massive particles; however, there can be dark matter signatures in colliders that emerge from strongly coupled dark matter. These signatures are varied, ranging from emerging jets to Stealth Dark Matter. Another possible signature is semi-visible...
43. Search for Supersymmetry at CMS in Events with Large Jet Multiplicity and Low Missing Transverse Momentum at sqrt(s)=13 TeV
6/11/19, 11:15 AM
In traditional searches for physics beyond the standard model, a requirement of high missing transverse momentum (MET) is often used. However, without any signs of significant deviations from the standard model expectations, we decided to relax this requirement for the search reported in this talk. Many new physics models, including versions of supersymmetry (SUSY) characterized by R-parity...

Searches for dark matter in the past two decades have largely focused on Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs). But what if instead of just one type of dark matter particle, there exists a richer dark sector hidden from ordinary view? This opens up a whole new paradigm for dark matter searches, allowing us to focus not only on the coupling between dark matter and the Standard Model, but...

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is an international long-baseline neutrino experiment. DUNE will consist of an intense neutrino beam produced at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois. The far detector will comprise of four Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers (LArTPC) holding in total around 40 ktons of fiducial mass and will be placed at the Sanford...

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is a leading-edge experiment for neutrino science and proton decay studies. The single-phase liquid argon prototype detector at CERN is a crucial milestone for the DUNE that will inform the construction and operation of the far detector modules. In this talk, I will present the current status of reconstructing Michel electrons from cosmic-ray...

The expected precision of current long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments (T2K, NO$\nu$A) will be limited by uncertainties in neutrino interaction models in addition to sample statistics. The interaction uncertainties will also play a significant role in next-generation experiments (DUNE, Hyper-K), which aim to collect much larger samples of oscillated neutrinos. Without significant...
