Request Description and Potential
Reason for request:
In supersymmetric models, the superpartners most closely tied to the weak scale by naturalness are the stop and sbottom, which cut-off the top and bottom's quadratically divergent contributions to the weak-scale. Various estimates by theorists suggest that this analysis has significant sensitivity to stops and sbottoms with ~200 GeV masses (see e.g. fig. 3 of arXiv:1110.6926), in parameter regions not yet explored by other searches. However, this is a challenging strategy to search for stops, because the selection efficiency is fairly low. A RECAST of this search in terms of the stop/higgsino or stop/sbottom/higgsino simplified models would be of considerable scientific interest, and would be helpful in understanding whether higher-luminosity updates of this search will enhance sensitivity to stops and sbottoms.

LHE sample files will be provided upon request


See also request 1202.0008 (for the t-tbar+MET analysis), which concerns a different search but very similar topologies. Ideally the same LHE files can be used for both.
