In this chapter, a particular Beyond Standard Model (BSM) theory, known as Supersymmetry (SUSY), is introduced. Supersymmetry provides the principal motivation for the analysis described in Chap.  10, which looks for final states containing two photons and large missing transverse momentum (see Sect.  6.4).
