Interpretation of Searches for Supersymmetry

Abstract

The results of CMS searches for Supersymmetry are interpreted in the context of Simplified Models. These results are based on data samples with a corresponding integrated luminosity of up to 4.98\fbinv produced in proton--proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7~TeV collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. This analysis provides a compilation of acceptance predictions and cross section upper limits for a range of Simplified Models and mass parameters. The results provide information that can be used to constrain other theoretical models. They also provide a comparison of different CMS search strategies.
