Investigating Gluino Production at the LHC

Rodriguez, Marcos Cardoso; Mariotto, Cristiano Brenner


Gluinos are expected to be one of the most massive sparticles (supersymmetric partners of usual particles) which constitute the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). The gluinos are the partners of the gluons and they are color octet fermions, due this fact they can not mix with the other particles. Therefore in several scenarios, given at SPS convention, they are the most massive particles and their nature is a Majorana fermion. Therefore their production is only feasible at a very energetic machine such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Being the fermion partners of the gluons, their role and interactions are directly related with the properties of the supersymmetric QCD (sQCD). We review the mechanisms for producing gluinos at the LHC and investigate the total cross section and differential distributions, making an analysis of their uncertainties, such as the gluino and squark masses, as obtained in several scenarios, commenting on the possibilities of discriminating among them.
