The Simplified Models Approach to Constraining Supersymmetry

Abstract : The current work studies the applicability of Simplified Model Spectra (SMS) framework to Supersymmetric (SUSY) scenarios. The SMS framework is useful as it involves a small number of parameters and presents the experimental results for SUSY searches in a general way. The SMS framework does not depend on a particular theory, therefore it is useful for a generic re-interpretation and test of scenarios. To use the SMS framework to constraint the SUSY parameter space, two automated tools were used: SModelS and Fastlim. The accomplishment of both tools, just as the strengths and limitations are remarked in this work. Finally, it was taken a specific SUSY scenario -Natural SUSY (NSUSY) and analyzed using both SModelS and Fastlim. As a result, it is shown that it is possible to constrain NSUSY scenarios within the SMS framework, but, to reach a more generic interpretation of the parameter space, improvements in both codes are needed.
