Event details

I will discuss the addition of a decay calculator to the SoftSusy spectrum generator program currently used for susy searches. The new version, softsusy-4.0, is therefore now be able to provide all-in-one
spectrum generation and decay calculation including all tree-level Susy 1 → 2 decays, relevant 1 → 3 decays, all relevant higgs decays including Zgamma, gamma gamma, glu glu, and crucially, all NMSSM 1 → 2 decays. The motivations and benefits for adding such decays to the program will be explained, along with how the program works, how to use it and some interesting scenarios the program can help examine. We hope the program will prove very useful to phenomenologists and experimentalists alike.

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
