One of the most versatile and attractive extensions to the successful yet incomplete Standard Model of particle physics is Supersymmetry – a theory the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider is looking for in its recorded data. Due to the nature of proton-proton collisions, the recorded physics events are mainly produced via the strong force. This fact makes searches for the superpartners of the gluon and the quarks particularly promising.
This document provides an overview of searches for squarks and gluinos using the ATLAS experiment and describes two of the major analyses in detail. The analysis strategies are outlined, the results discussed and interpreted. Finally, an outlook onto other searches for strongly produced Supersymmetry with ATLAS is given.
