Title: Disorder and mimesis at hadron colliders

Abstract

We discuss how systems with a large number of degrees of freedom and disorder in their mass matrix can play a role in particle physics. We derive results on their mass spectra using, where applicable, QFT techniques. We study concrete realizations of these scenarios in the context of the LHC and HL-LHC, showing that collider events with a large number of soft b-quark jets can be common. Such final states can hide these models from current searches at the LHC. This motivates the ongoing effort aimed at lowering trigger thresholds and expanding data scouting.
