Searching for Supersymmetry at High-Energy Colliders

  • Felicitas Pauss


Recent developments in searches for supersymmetric particles at future e+e- and hadron colliders are reviewed. The detection of supersymmetric particles is studied for two scenarios: a) direct decays to the lightest supersymmetric particle, which escapes detection and therefore leads to large missing transverse energy, and b) cascade decays of heavy supersymmetric particles containing gauge bosons among their decay products. The implications arising from searches for supersymmetric particles at LEP will also be discussed.
