ATLAS/CMS Dark Matter Forum Topic: Overall list and documentation of Simplified Models

Responsibles: A, B, C, D

Task: finalize list of simplified models for mono-X searches and direct searches for DM mediators

Timescale: needs completed by the end of January 2015

The Forum members working on this subject have the responsibility to coordinate a prioritized, small set of benchmark simplified models (matrix element) that should be agreed upon by both collaborations for Run-2 searches. They will discuss and work with the experts for each of the sub-topics to reach convergence, listed below, and add further sub-topics with other experts if necessary.


  1. s-channel model details (scalar, vector): SChannelModelDetails
  2. t-channel model details (scalar, vector): TChannelModelDetails
  3. heavy flavor / scalar model details: HFModelDetails

Work log and plan

December 2014: Steve Mrenna and the ATLAS/CMS Dark Matter Forum organizers have produced a first document draft with three (?) models and some grid scan points as a starting point.

Suggested timeline and milestones

First ATLAS/CMS Dark Matter Forum meeting: 2nd week of January 2015

  • Reach agreement or implement changes with respect to the initial list.
  • Present a plan for convergence of the list
  • Start communicating with Forum members working on the subject of the implementation

Second ATLAS/CMS Dark Matter Forum meeting: last week of January 2015

  • Have a final list of selected models to serve as Run-2 benchmarks
  • Actively participate in decision of grid points and various implementations to be used

Third ATLAS/CMS Dark Matter Forum meeting: second week of February 2015

  • Prepare documentation suitable both as a reference for the internal ATLAS and CMS audiences and as an explanation for theory and non-‐collider readers.
  • Share written documentation with Forum participants and reviewers
