Prospects for Yukawa Unified SO(10) SUSY GUTs at the CERN LHC

Abstract : The requirement of t-b-\tau Yukawa coupling unification is common in simple grand unified models based on the gauge group SO(10), and it also places a severe constraint on the expected spectrum of superpartners. For Yukawa-unified models with \mu >0, the spectrum is characterized by three mass scales: {\it i}). first and second generation scalars in the multi-TeV range, {\it ii}). third generation scalars, \mu and m_A in the few-TeV range and {\it iii}). gluinos in the \sim 350-500 GeV range with chargino masses around 100-160 GeV. In such a scenario, gluino pair production should occur at large rates at the CERN LHC, followed by gluino three-body decays into neutralinos or charginos. Discovery of Yukawa-unified SUSY at the LHC should hence be possible with only 1 fb^{-1} of integrated luminosity, by tagging multi-jet events with 2--3 isolated leptons, without relying on missing E_T. A characteristic dilepton mass edge should easily be apparent above Standard Model background. Combining dileptons with b-jets, along with the gluino pair production cross section information, should allow for gluino and neutralino mass reconstruction. A secondary corroborative signal should be visible at higher integrated luminosity in the W1Z2-> 3\ell channel, and should exhibit the same dilepton mass edge as in the gluino cascade decay signal.
