Title: A Search for Supersymmetric Electrons with the Mark II Detector at PEP

Abstract

An experimental search for selectrons, the supersymmetric partner of the electron, has been performed at the PEP storage ring at SLAC using the Mark II detector. Supersymmetry is a theory based upon a symmetry between fermions and bosons, such that all ordinary fermions(bosons) have supersymmetric bosonic(fermionic) partners. This theory is very important in current theoretical attempts to construct a complete unified quantum field theory which incorporates all four forces: strong, electromagnetic, weak, and gravitational. However, all experimental searches for supersymmetric signals, including this one, have so far yielded negative results.
