Theoretical Framework and Motivation

The Standard Model is currently the most precise theoretical framework to describe the sub-atomic particles and their behavior, and a large number of precision measurements have validated its accuracy. However, there are still many problems that the SM leaves unsolved. This indicates that it is a low-energy approximation of a more general underlying theory, and new physics beyond the SM does exist. Supersymmetry, which is a symmetry that relates bosons and fermions, is one of the most promising theories providing a solution to the problems in the SM. This chapter gives an overview of the SUSY models explored in this dissertation and their theoretical motivations.
