Title: Squark pair production in the MSSM with explicit CP violation

Abstract

We analyze effects of the CP-odd soft phases in the MSSM on the pair productions of colored superpartners in pp collisions at the LHC energies. We find that, among all pair-production processes, those of the scalar quarks in the first and second generations are particularly sensitive to the CP-odd phases, more precisely, to the phases of the gluinos and neutralinos. We compute pair-production cross sections, classify various production modes according to their dependencies on the gluino and neutralino phases, perform a detailed numerical analysis to determine individual as well as total cross sections, and give a detailed discussion of 2. electric dipole moment (EDM) bounds. We find that pair productions of first and second generation squarks serve as a viable probe of the CP violation sources in the gaugino sector of the theory even if experiments cannot determine chirality, flavor and electric charge of the squarks produced.

  • We investigate the associated production of neutral Higgs boson with squark pair in the minimal supersymmetric standard model with and without explicit CP violation, respectively. We show that the dominant productions in both cases are always ones of the lightest neutral Higgs boson associated with the lightest stop pair, which can reach a few pb, in the ranges of parameters allowed by constraints from the electric dipole moment experiments. In most of the parameter space, the total cross sections in the case with explicit CP violation are significantly enhanced, compared with ones without explicit CP violation. For some special parameters,more » several orders of magnitude enhancement can be obtained.« less
  • We describe the Fortran code CPsuperH2.0, which contains several improvements and extensions of its predecessor CPsuperH. It implements improved calculations of the Higgs-boson pole masses, notably a full treatment of the 4 x 4 neutral Higgs propagator matrix including the Goldstone boson and a more complete treatment of threshold effects in self-energies and Yukawa couplings, improved treatments of two-body Higgs decays, some important three-body decays, and two-loop Higgs-mediated contributions to electric dipole moments. CPsuperH2.0 also implements an integrated treatment of several B-meson observables, including the branching ratios of B{sub s} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}, B{sub d} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -},more » B{sub u} {yields} IV, B {yields} X{sub s}Y and the latter's CP-violating asymmetry A{sub CP}, and the supersymmetric contributions to the B{sub s,d}{sup 0} - {bar B}{sub s,d}{sup 0} mass differences. These additions make CPsuperH2.0 an attractive integrated tool for analyzing supersymmetric CP and flavour physics as well as searches for new physics at high-energy colliders such as the Tevatron, LHC and linear colliders.« less
  • We analyze the Tevatron and Large Hadron Collider (LHC) reach for the Higgs sector of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) in the presence of explicit CP violation. Using the most recent studies from the Tevatron and LHC collaborations, we examine the CPX benchmark scenario for a range of CP-violating phases in the soft trilinear and gluino mass terms and compute the exclusion/discovery potentials for each collider on the (MH+,tan{beta}) plane. Projected results from standard model (SM)-like, nonstandard, and charged Higgs searches are combined to maximize the statistical significance. We exhibit complementarity between the SM-like Higgs searches at the LHCmore » with low luminosity and the Tevatron, and estimate the combined reach of the two colliders in the early phase of LHC running.« less
