Beyond Standard Model Phenomenology at the LHC

Authors: de Aquino, Priscila

  • Nominated as an outstanding Ph.D. thesis by the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium
  • Describes theoretical aspects of spin-2 particles, including their propagator and refers to the famous “van Dam-Veltman discontinuity”
  • Presents a full phenomenological search for graviton emission, in the context of different BSM theories, in a multi-jet final state
  • Includes a phenomenological study of gravitino emission in a multi-jet final state in the context of supersymmetric theories

About this book

This thesis provides an introduction to the physics of the Standard Model and beyond, and to the methods used to analyse Large Hadron Collider (LHC) data. The 'hierarchy problem', astrophysical data and experiments on neutrinos indicate that new physics can be expected at the now accessible TeV scale. This work investigates extensions of the Standard Model with gravitons and gravitinos (in the context of supergravity). The production of these particles in association with jets is studied as one of the most promising avenues for researching new physics at the LHC. Advanced simulation techniques and tools, such as algorithms allowing the computation of Feynman graphs and helicity amplitudes are first developed and then employed.
