Description

Signal events where multiple missing neutral particles are present in a final state represent challenging topologies to search for new physics at the LHC. The key to any search is the ability to separate background-like events from signal-like events. Identifying such signal-like events, and extracting their properties, is exacerbated by a lack of knowledge of the particle masses and some missing kinematic handles. The "Recursive Jigsaw" technique introduces a new approach to extracting information in events with open final states resulting from pair-production of objects.
