Description

Both ATLAS and CMS have been using effective field theory approach to describe their results in terms of the DM pair-production in Run-1. Whereas the effective field theory is well applicable in the case of the direct detection experiments, it is facing severe criticism when used at colliders where the actual inferred limits on the suppression scale are comparable to the centre-of-mass energy. I will report on the recent works and on the ongoing effort to define a set of simplified models that ATLAS and CMS shall be using in Run-2.
