Abstract

A 100 TeV proton-proton collider will be an extremely effective way to probe the electroweak sector of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). In this paper, we describe a search strategy for discovering pair-produced Higgsino-like next-to-lightest supersymmetric particles (NLSPs) at a 100 TeV hadron collider that decay to Bino-like lightest supersymmetric particles (LSPs) via intermediate Z and SM Higgs bosons that in turn decay to a pair of leptons and a pair of b-quarks respectively: χ˜20χ˜30→(Zχ˜10)(hχ˜10)→bbℓℓ+χ˜10χ˜10 In addition, we examine the potential for machine learning techniques to boost the power of our searches. Using this analysis, Higgsinos up to 1.4 TeV can be discovered at the 5σ level for Binos with mass of about 0.9 TeV using 3000 fb−1 of data. Additionally, Higgsinos up to 1.8 TeV can be excluded at 95% C.L. for Binos with mass of about 1.4 TeV. This search channel extends the multi-lepton search limits, especially in the region where the mass difference between the Higgsino NLSPs and the Bino LSP is small.
