Vienna Theory Lunch Club - Re-Powering the LHC: What to expect from the first months, How we search for SUSY
Speaker:Gregor Kasieczka (HEPHY)
Abstract:After the incident in September 2008, considerable effort went into the repair of the affected sectors, quality assurance for all parts and the design of additional security measures. Confidence is high that starting from November the accelerator will be up and running and data be taken. The talk will be split into three parts: First a glance at the planned work in the first weeks and months after powering on the LHC will be given. The main goal in this period will be the re-discovery of the standard model. A possible early discovery at the LHC is Supersymmetry. The second part will summarize the efforts of the CMS collaboration in that direction. Finally I would like to present one of the central aspects in the work of the CMS Analysis Group at HEPHY - Data Driven Background estimation. For early data, the computer simulated predictions for the background of the expected supersymmetric events are subject to high uncertainities. It is desirable to employ strategies that estimate the background in the signal region by using information from regions that are expected to be signal-free. Such methods will be discussed and the discriminating power for the first months of data taking examined. Lunch club Overview
