Idea

In quantum field theory the term gaugino denotes a field that is a superpartner of a gauge boson. This appears in super Yang-Mills theory. For instance the partner of a gluon in the MSSM is called a gluino, and so on.

In terms of Chern-Weil theory/differential cohomology we have that

Experiment

Experimental exclusion bounds of gluino rest masses due to the LHC experiment excludes gluinos/squarks of mass below about 3-4 TeV (Particle Data Group Review 17, figure 113.2 and 113.9):
