Search for physics beyond the standard model in events with τ-leptons in the presence of multijets and large momentum imbalance in pp collisions at √s= 7 TeV.

Abstract

A search for physics beyond the standard model is performed with one or more hadronically decaying τ-leptons, highly energetic jets and large momentum imbalance in the final state. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 4.98 fb-1 of pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV collected with the CMS detector at the LHC. The number of observed events is consistent with data-driven predictions for standard model processes. In the absence of any evidence of supersymmetry, upper limits on the mass of the gluino have been set.

The filled green area is the prediction obtained from the muon control sample. The hashed area is the total uncertainty on the prediction.

Table 1: The estimated (predicted) and observed (selected) background contributions for simulated events with a real τh passing the baseline and full selection in the single τh final state. The reconstructed τh is required to match the visible part of the generated, hadronically decaying τ-lepton. The predictions are derived from the muon control sample and the events are normalized to 4.98 fb-1.

Percentage of multijet events in MHT in single τh.(click to get .png)

Table 2: The percentage of multijet events in the MHT binned samples for different multijet dominated regions in the single τh final state is shown. This is used to test the background estimation method due to a misidentified τh. The ratio of selected events over predicted events is shown to be statistically compatible to one and the ratio is stable over the multijet dominated range of 60 < MHT < 100 GeV (in the case of data, the ratio of selected/predicted = 1.07 ± 0.21).
