Artificial proto-modelling: building precursors of a next standard model from simplified model results

We present a novel algorithm to identify potential dispersed signals of new physics in the slew of published LHC results. It employs a random walk algorithm to introduce sets of new particles, dubbed "proto-models", which are tested against simplified-model results from ATLAS and CMS (exploiting the SModelS software framework). A combinatorial algorithm identifies the set of analyses and/or signal regions that maximally violates the SM hypothesis, while remaining compatible with the entirety of… Expand

Baryogenesis and gravity waves from a UV-completed electroweak phase transition
We study gravity wave production and baryogenesis at the electroweak phase transition, in a real singlet scalar extension of the Standard Model, including vector-like top partners to generate the CPExpand
Publishing statistical models: Getting the most out of particle physics experiments
The statistical models used to derive the results of experimental analyses are of incredible scientific value and are essential information for analysis preservation and reuse. In this paper, we makeExpand


Simplified models for a first characterization of new physics at the LHC
Low-energy SUSY and several other theories that address the hierarchy problem predict pair-production at the LHC of particles with Standard Model quantum numbers that decay to jets, missing energy,Expand
SModelS v1.2: Long-lived particles, combination of signal regions, and other novelties
SModelS is an automatised tool enabling the fast interpretation of simplified model results from the LHC within any model of new physics respecting a $\mathbb{Z}_2$ symmetry, and the current version allows for a combination of signal regions in efficiency map results whenever a covariance matrix is available from the experiment.

Constraining new physics with collider measurements of Standard Model signatures
A bstractA new method providing general consistency constraints for Beyond-the-Standard-Model (BSM) theories, using measurements at particle colliders, is presented. The method, ‘Constraints On NewExpand
SModelS: a tool for interpreting simplified-model results from the LHC and its application to supersymmetry
We present a general procedure to decompose Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) collider signatures presenting a $$\mathbb {Z}_2$$Z2 symmetry into Simplified Model Spectrum (SMS) topologies. Our methodExpand
General features of supersymmetric signals at the ILC: Solving the CERN LHC inverse problem

SModelS v1.1 user manual: Improving simplified model constraints with efficiency maps
The notion of simplified models to constrain full models by “decomposing” them into their SMS components is exploited, and the functionality of SModelS is extended to efficiency maps, increasing the constraining power of the software. Expand
A meta-analysis of the 8 TeV ATLAS and CMS SUSY searches
A bstractBetween the ATLAS and CMS collaborations at the LHC, hundreds of individual event selections have been measured in the data to look for evidence of supersymmetry at a center of mass energyExpand
Model-independent bounds on a light Higgs
A bstractWe present up-to-date constraints on a generic Higgs parameter space. An accurate assessment of these exclusions must take into account statistical, and potentially signal, fluctuations inExpand
Supersymmetry and the LHC inverse problem
Given experimental evidence at the LHC for physics beyond the standard model, how can we determine the nature of the underlying theory? We initiate an approach to studying the ``inverse map from theExpand
