ABSTRACT We present the full one-loop corrections to charged and CP-even neutral Higgs boson decays into sfermions including also the crossed channels. The calculation was carried out in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model and we use the on-shell renormalization scheme. For the down-type sfermions, we use running fermion masses and the trilinear coupling Af as input. Furthermore, we present the first numerical analysis for decays according to the Supersymmetric Parameter Analysis project. This requires the renormalization of the whole MSSM. The corrections are found to be numerically stable and not negligible.

    ABSTRACT: We analyze neutral Higgs boson decays into squark pairs in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model and improve previous analyses. In particular the treatment of potentially large higher-order corrections due to the soft SUSY breaking parameters A_b, the trilinear Higgs coupling to sbottoms, and mu, the Higgsino mass parameter, is investigated. The remaining theoretical uncertainties including the SUSY-QCD corrections are analyzed quantitatively.

    ABSTRACT: We present the analysis of the signature 2j + ETmiss (+X) via squark-squark production and direct decay into the lightest neutralino, pp -> squark squark -> j j chi_1^0 chi_1^0 (+X), in next-to-leading order QCD within the framework of the minimal supersymmetric standard model. In our approximation the produced squarks are treated on shell. Thus, the calculation of production and decay factorizes. In this way, we provide a consistent, fully differential calculation of NLO QCD factorizable corrections to the given processes. Clustering final states into partonic jets, we investigate the experimental inclusive signature 2j + ETmiss for several benchmark scenarios. We compare resulting differential distributions with leading-order approximations rescaled by a flat K-factor and examine a possible impact for cut-and-count searches for supersymmetry at the LHC.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we present an analysis at NLO of the contribution from squark-squark production to the experimental signature 2j + 2l + missing E_T (+X) with opposite-sign same flavor leptons, taking into account decays and experimental cuts. We consider the case in which one squark decays directly into the lightest neutralino chi^0_1 and the other one into the second lightest neutralino and subsequently into l^+l^-chi^0_1 via an intermediate slepton. On one hand we study effects of the NLO corrections on invariant mass distributions which can be used for future parameter determination. On the other hand we analyze the impact on predictions for cut-and-count searches using this experimental signature.
