Top-squark pair production at the LHC: a complete analysis at next-to-leading order


Germer, Jan; Hollik, Wolfgang; Lindert, Jonas M; Mirabella, Edoardo (2014). Top-squark pair production at the LHC: a complete analysis at next-to-leading order. Journal of High Energy Physics:022.

Abstract

We present a complete next-to-leading order study of top-squark pair production at the LHC, including QCD and EW corrections. The calculation is performed within the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model and numerical results are presented for parameter regions compatible with the observed Higgs boson. We employ the most recent parton distribution functions including QED corrections and we find NLO EW corrections to the inclusive stop-pair production cross section up to 25-30% compared to the leading-order prediction. Besides corrections to inclusive cross sections also important kinematic distributions are investigated.
