Measuring Supersymmetry

Abstract : If new physics is found at the LHC (and the ILC) the reconstruction of the underlying theory should not be biased by assumptions about high-scale models. For the mapping of many measurements onto high-dimensional parameter spaces we introduce SFitter with its new weighted Markov chain technique. SFitter determines the best-fitting parameter point and produces a ranked list of the most likely parameter points. More generally, SFitter constructs a likelihood map, which can be reduced to lower-dimensional profile likelihoods or Bayesian probability maps. We show how it should be possible to analyze high-dimensional new-physics parameter spaces at the LHC. A combination of LHC and ILC measurements might well be able to completely cover highly complex TeV-scale parameter spaces.
