Description

We present a model independent search for physics beyond the standard model in lepton final states. We examine data in 120 unique final states from 1.07 fb-1 of at ppbar collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.96 TeV collected with the D0 detector. We conclude that all discrepancies seen can be attributed to modeling issues and do not claim evidence of new physics.
