Search for electroweak production of charginos and neutralinos at s=13TeV in final states containing hadronic decays of WW, WZ, or WH and missing transverse momentum

Abstract: This Letter presents a search for direct production of charginos and neutralinos via electroweak interactions. The results are based on data from proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV collected with the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 137 fb-1. The search considers final states with large missing transverse momentum and pairs of hadronically decaying bosons WW, WZ, and WH, where H is the Higgs boson. These bosons are identified using novel algorithms. No significant excess of events is observed relative to the expectations from the standard model. Limits at the 95% confidence level are placed on the cross section for production of mass-degenerate wino-like supersymmetric particles ??1 ± and ??2 0, and mass-degenerate higgsino-like supersymmetric particles ??1 ±, ??2 0, and ??3 0. In the limit of a nearly-massless lightest supersymmetric particle ??1 0, wino-like particles with masses up to 870 and 960 GeV are excluded in the cases of ??2 0?Z??1 0 and ??2 0?H??1 0, respectively, and higgsino-like particles are excluded between 300 and 650 GeV.
