Direct Probes for R-Parity Violation at the LHC
by Regen, Eli, M.S., Illinois Institute of Technology, 2017, 28; 10680821
Abstract (Summary)

As the LHC enters its second run at 13 TeV, new parameter space will become available that will allow for a more extensive search for supersymmetric partners. This thesis explores limits on a baryon number violating R-parity-violating (RPV) extension of the s-channel production of top squarks, examining the experimental signature for the R-parity conserving decay of the top squark into the lightest neutralino and a hadronically decaying top quark. Using Monte Carlo simulations I calculate upper bounds for the RPV coupling parameters λ'' for a range of top squark and neutralino masses that would allow for its existence.
