Search for supersymmetry with a compressed mass spectrum in events with a soft $\tau$ lepton, a highly energetic jet, and large missing transverse momentum in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s} =$ 13 TeV

12 Feb 2020 CMS Collaboration

The first search for supersymmetry in events with an experimental signature of one soft, hadronically decaying $\tau$ lepton, one energetic jet from initial-state radiation, and large transverse momentum imbalance is presented. These event signatures are consistent with direct or indirect production of scalar $\tau$ leptons ($\tilde{\tau}$) in supersymmetric models that exhibit coannihilation between the $\tilde{\tau}$ and the lightest neutralino ($\tilde{\chi}^0_1$), and that could generate the observed relic density of dark matter...
