NLO accuracy for production and decay of squarks matched with parton shower
The search for supersymmetry is a central task of the Large Hadron Collider. The interpretation of the experimental data requires accurate and flexible theoretical predictions. We present a new calculation of the next-to-leading order supersymmetric-QCD corrections to the production and the decay of squarks. In particular, we provide fully differential cross sections matched to parton showers. We will focus our discussion on the production of squarks which then directly decay into the lightest supersymmetric particle and jets. The methods used and some exemplary results will be presented.
