Hadronic production of bottom-squark pairs with electroweak contributions. (English) Zbl 1296.81166

Summary: We present the complete computation of the tree-level and the next-to-leading order electroweak contributions to bottom-squark pair production at the LHC. The computation is performed within the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model. We discuss the numerical impact of these contributions in several supersymmetric scenarios.
