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, including the tools to perform various kinds of statistical inference

as illustrated in the graphics below.
