SModelS User Manual¶
These pages constitute the SModelS manual.
SModelS is an automatic, public tool for interpreting simplified-model results from the LHC. It is based on a general procedure to decompose Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) collider signatures presenting a Z2-like symmetry into Simplified Model Spectrum (SMS) topologies. Our method provides a way to cast BSM predictions for the LHC in a model independent framework, which can be directly confronted with the relevant experimental constraints. The main SModelS ingredients are
- the decomposition of the BSM spectrum into SMS topologies
- a database of experimental SMS results
- the interface between decomposition and results database to compute limits
as illustrated in the graphics below.
