Global BSM fits and LHC data

TH Theory Conference Room (CERN)

TH Theory Conference Room


Michelangelo Mangano (CERN)

The aims of this workshop include:

  • to review the progress of the tools for global fits of BSM models
  • to propose benchmarks for the parameterization of specific classes of models, in order to facilitate and standardize the representation of the results of the experimental searches at the LHC, and their use in the fitting codes
  • to liaise with the "simplified models" approaches, as discussed e.g. in the "Characterization of new physics at the LHC" meetings
  • to provide an update of the work carried out within the DESY SUSY/BSM Fit Working Group
