What’s New

The major novelties of all releases since v1.0 are as follows:

New in Version 2.1.1:

  • caching weight matrix in simplified likelihoods

  • improved truncated Gaussians in likelihoodsFromLimits (but kept as experimental feature)
  • experimental features can now be turned on via ini file

New in Version 2.1.0:

  • Ability to merge Databases using ‘+’ as a delimiter: “latest_fastlim” and “official_fastlim” are now written as “latest+fastlim”, and “official+fastlim”.
  • useSuperseded flag in getExpResults is marked as deprecated, as we now just put superseded results in separate database
  • DataSets now have an .isCombinableWith function
  • Slightly extended output of summary printer
  • Added scan summary (summary.txt) when running over multiple files
  • Added expandedOutput option to slha-printer
  • Output for efficiency-map results now reports L, L_max and L_SM
  • The likelihood is now maximized only for positive values of the signal strength in the computation of L_max
  • Pythia8 version in xsecComputer updated from 8226 to 8306
  • Improved interactive plots
  • database updated with results from 5 new ATLAS and 1 new CMS analyses:
    CMS-EXO-19-010 (disappearing tracks) UL, ATLAS-SUSY-2016-08 (displaced leptons) EM, ATLAS-SUSY-2018-10 (1l+jets) UL+EM, ATLAS-SUSY-2018-12 (0l+jets) UL+EM, ATLAS-SUSY-2018-22 (0l+jets) UL+EM, ATLAS-SUSY-2018-23 (EWino, WH) UL
  • added EM results for
    ATLAS-SUSY-2017-03 (EWino, WZ), ATLAS-SUSY-2018-06 (EWino, WZ), ATLAS-SUSY-2018-14 (sleptons), CMS-SUSY-14-021 (stops)
  • created and added THSCPM10 and THSCPM11 EMs for ATLAS-SUSY-2016-32;
  • replaced some 8 TeV ATLAS conf notes with the published results
    (ATLAS-CONF-2013-007 -> ATLAS-SUSY-2013-09, ATLAS-CONF-2013-061 -> ATLAS-SUSY-2013-18, ATLAS-CONF-2013-089 -> ATLAS-SUSY-2013-20)
  • corrected off-shell regions of some existing EM-type results (in three 13 TeV and eigth 8 TeV analyses).

New in Version 2.0.0:

  • fixed dataId bug in datasets

New in Version 1.2.3:

  • database updated with results from more than 20 new analyses
  • server for databases is now smodels.github.io, not smodels.hephy.at

  • List displaced signatures in missing topologies
  • Improved description about lifetime reweighting in doc
  • Fix in cluster for asymmetric masses
  • Small improvements in the interactive plots tool

New in Version 1.2.1:
