Abstract (data abstract)
A search for supersymmetric particles produced in the vector boson fusion topology in proton-proton collisions is presented. The search targets final states with one or zero leptons, large missing transverse momentum, and two jets with a large separation in rapidity. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$ of proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV collected in 2016 with the CMS detector at the LHC. The observed dijet invariant mass and lepton-neutrino transverse mass spectra are found to be consistent with the standard model predictions. Upper limits are set on the cross sections for chargino ($\tilde{\chi}_{1}^{\pm}$) and neutralino ($\tilde{\chi}_{2}^{0}$) production with two associated jets. For a compressed mass spectrum scenario in which the $\tilde{\chi}_{1}^{\pm}$ and $\tilde{\chi}_{2}^{0}$ decays proceed via a light slepton and the mass difference between the lightest neutralino $\tilde{\chi}_{1}^{0}$ and the mass-degenerate particles $\tilde{\chi}_{1}^{\pm}$ and $\tilde{\chi}_{2}^{0}$ is 1 (30) GeV, the most stringent lower limit to date of 112 (215) GeV is set on the mass of these latter two particles.
