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 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
matching between the decomposition and results database, including the tools to perform various kinds of statistical inference
as illustrated in the scheme below.
