A No SUSY at ICHEP, Limits on gluino masses now up 1.9 TeV

    Given that they found no SUSY gluinos squarks with this years data set of 18-19 fb-1 + 2-4 fb-1 from last year what are the prospects for natural SUSY at LHC? since they have not found any hints of SUSY in the first 20+ fb-1, @ 13TEV what are the propsects for SUSY as LHC hopes to accumulate 3000 fb-1


    what are the implications for MSSM and nMSSM of all the null results thus far, including also LUX dark matter searches and rare b decays and electron EDM ACME.

    it appears based on the combination of the above results that natural SUSY is strongly disfavored, does this mean what stabilizes the Higgs is conformal invariance?

    i.e 4 BSM explanations for hierarchy problem
    1 SUSY 2 technicolor 3 extra dimensions 4 conformal invariance

    LHC found no evidence for 1-3 so
    4 conformal invariance.

    I'm still holding out for 5 "none of the above".

    what is your 5?

    Nothing in particular, just something else that might be out there already or might not yet be formulated.

    what do you think of the latest LHC results on SUSY, and in combination with other results like LUX PandaX etc?

    SUSY's prospects are ever more bleak and less well motivated.

    The data analysis was 12.9 fb-1. how many fb-1 does LHC atlas cms need to accumulate to make a definitive statement?

    The LHC (as some supersymmetry advocates has long noted) is incapable of ever ruling out all versions of SUSY. It can only increase the mass scales at which SUSY sparticals and other parameters are excluded. LHC can probably eventually push those exclusions to the mid-single digit TeV range. But, it probably can't push those exclusions very far (if at all) into the double digit TeV range. This certainly is enough to exclude "natural" SUSY scenarios, but not all SUSY scenarios.

    Black hole searches and other gravity-related things are probably the only direct searches that can go beyond 10 TeV (edit: with the LHC). Everything else is too rare with the combination of proton PDFs and hard process.

    Don't the Chinese dream of 100 TeV?

    A 100 TeV concept is studied by CERN, and would probably use the LHC (with modifications) as preaccelerator. Not before 2040, if it gets funded at all.

    The Chinese aim at a lower energy, something like 50-70 TeV. Timescale: 2035+ if it gets funded at all.

    My previous post was about the LHC, with 13-14 TeV collision energy.

    when i said susy natural susy. which if ruled out by lhc, and nothing new is found, what accounts for the hierarchy problem which susy was supposed to address.

    current bounds from electron edm would suggest a mass scale for susy, it exists at all, much above 100TEV+

    International Linear Collider

    there is proposed International Linear Collider

    Yes, but that is an electron/positron collider, with an energy of at most 1 TeV. It won't find particles (directly) that are too heavy for the LHC, and it will certainly not produce particles heavier than 10 TeV.

    the popular news says that the chinese pp collider will be 7 times the energy of lhc around 100tev

    How is that related to the post you quoted?
    I already mentioned the Chinese collider concept as one that would surpass the LHC energy. The energy is planned to be 50-70 TeV: Source. I don't know which "popular news" you read, but 50-70 is not 7 times 13 or 14. And they give 2042+ as timescale for proton-proton collisions.

    The 100 TeV concept is one studied by CERN, with CERN as most likely site for its construction.

    an example of a news article

    http://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/china-particle-collider/

    Not one to be outdone by the West, China is reportedly preparing to build a super-sized particle collider that’ll dwarf the existing Large Hadron Collider operated by CERN. Chinese scientists will use its proposed Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC) to study Higgs boson particles, with the goal of learning more about the so called “God Particle” and possibly dark matter, which makes up most of the universe.

    The CEPC collider will measure between 50 and 100 kilometers (31 to 60 miles) in circumference, which is significantly larger than the LHC, which measures just 27 kilometers (about 17 miles) around. It will generate seven times the energy of the LHC, allowing scientists to potentially create millions of Higgs boson particles in a single go.

    Well, now you have to decide which source to trust:

    - the scientists planning the thing (see my link)
    - someone with a background in microbiology, Adobe Flash and Macromedia Director, writing about "god particles", getting the number of Higgs bosons wrong by 6 orders of magnitude in one instance and 4 orders of magnitude (but in the opposite direction) one sentence later, mixing the energies of the proposed proton-proton collisions with the electron-positron operation, and so on.

    is a proton-proton collider with an unprecedented center-of-mass energy of 50 – 70 TeV worth several billion dollars to build, over 14 TEV for LHC? if you're going to spend tens of billions of dollars on a proton-proton collider shouldn't the improvement be an order of magnitude over 14 TEV?

    That is something the funding agencies have to decide.
    An order of magnitude is an arbitrary goal, there is nothing special about the number 10. Tunnels are expensive and mass-production improvements don't get much better after some point, so for these large colliders costs will go up faster than the square root of the energy which was a good approximation for earlier accelerators.

    It is not just energy, a higher luminosity and better detectors help as well.
