Room 005 h: 14:30 Collider phenomenology of Hidden Valley models with semivisible jets
Giovanni Grilli di Cortona Many New Physics models contain particles that are charged under both Standard Model and Hidden Valley gauge groups, yet very little effort has been put into establishing their experimental signatures. I will provide a general overview of the collider phenomenology of spin 0 or 1/2 mediators with non-trivial gauge numbers under both the Standard Model and a single new confining group, with a focus on direct production with semivisible jets. For the mediators to be able to decay, a global U(1) symmetry must be broken. This is best done by introducing a set of operators explicitly violating this symmetry. I will show that there is only a finite number of such renormalizable operators and that the phenomenology can be classified into five distinct categories. I will also show that large regions of the parameter space are already excluded, while others are unconstrained by current search strategies. Finally I will discuss how searches could be modified to better probe these unconstrained regions by exploiting special properties of semivisible jets.
