Searches with the ATLAS detector for new coloured particles in the Jets + Missing Energy channel in early LHC data

Abstract:

The switching on of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in March 2010 and its successful operation thereafter has opened doors in the search for new physics beyond the Standard Model. Supersymmetry (SUSY) is one of the leading theories that extends the Standard Model of particle physics. A search for new SUSY particles is presented requiring large numbers of hadronic jets and missing transverse momentum. Novel background estimation techniques were developed specifically for this final state, a...
