SUGGESTED PRE-READINGS FROM THE FOLLOWING LECTURERS (as of June 6, 2013): 

Beate Heinemann:
Lecture 1: Searches for new physics with Jets:
1. monojet search: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1210.4491v2.pdf
2. stop, sbottom and gluinos: http://arxiv.org/abs/1207.4686

and if time permits, for Lecture 2 I also suggest:
4. http://cds.cern.ch/record/1471000/files/CERN-ATS-2012-236.pdf
5. http://cds.cern.ch/record/1471002/files/CERN-ATS-2012-237.pdf
6. http://cds.cern.ch/record/1527529/files/ATL-PHYS-PUB-2013-004.pdf

Elliot Lipeles:
1. For the inputs discussion, I will use the ATLAS H->WW result which has a significant and subtle interplay with theory: "Measurements of the properties of the Higgs-like boson in the $WW^{(\ast)} \to \ell \nu \ell \nu$ decay channel with the ATLAS detector using 25 fb$^{-1}$ of proton-proton collision data" ATLAS-CONF-2013-030 http://cds.cern.ch/record/1527126

2. For the interpretation discussion, I will use the ATLAS coupling combination which gives several examples about possible assumptions that can be made in interpreting the Higgs measurements coherently. "Combined coupling measurements of the Higgs-like boson with the ATLAS detector using up to 25 fb$^{-1}$ of proton-proton collision data"  ATLAS-CONF-2013-034  http://cds.cern.ch/record/1528170

Sunil Somalwar:
My reading list consists of LHC results that use leptons in the signature from these two locations:
1. https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/CMSPublic/PhysicsResultsSUS
2. https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/AtlasPublic/SupersymmetryPublicResults

Raman Sundrum:
1. Michael Dine, "Supersymmetry phenomenology (with a broad brush)" http://arxiv.org/pdf/hep-ph/9612389.pdf
2. Christopher Brust, Andrey Katz, Scott Lawrence, Raman Sundrum, "SUSY, the Third Generation and the LHC" http://arxiv.org/pdf/1110.6670.pdf
3. Nima Arkani-Hamed, Savas Dimopoulos, Shamit Kachru, "Predictive landscapes and new physics at a TeV" http://arxiv.org/pdf/hep-th/0501082.pdf
4. Kaustubh Agashe, Takemichi Okui, Raman Sundrum, "A Common Origin for Neutrino Anarchy and Charged Hierarchies" http://arxiv.org/pdf/0810.1277.pdf

Jesse Thaler:
For my lectures on Jet Substructure, the following references will be helpful:
1. Jessie Shelton, "TASI Lectures on Jet Substructure" http://arxiv.org/abs/1302.0260 (a good introduction)
2. Gavin Salam, "Towards Jetography" http://arxiv.org/abs/0906.1833 (a few more advanced topics)
3. R. K. Ellis, W. J. Stirling, B. R. Webber (Author), "QCD and Collider Physics (Cambridge Monographs on Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics and Cosmology)" (the classic textbook, aka 'The Pink Book')

Natalia Toro:
1. S. Martin, "A Supersymmetry Primer" http://arxiv.org/abs/hepph/9709356 (sections 6 and 9 will be most relevant)
2. Papucci, Ruderman, and Weiler, "Natural SUSY Endures" http://arxiv.org/abs/1110.6926 (especially section 2)
3. Additionally, it would be useful to look over the current SUSY search limits from both ATLAS and CMS as seen at https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/CMSPublic/PhysicsResultsSUS and https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/AtlasPublic/SupersymmetryPublicResults (one nice summary for CMS 7TeV data is http://arxiv.org/abs/1301.2175)
4. Hall, Pinner, and Ruderman, "A Natural SUSY Higgs Near 125 GeV" http://arxiv.org/abs/1112.2703
