Description

Results from the Dijet Resonance Search using data from 2016 and 2017 running will be shown, with emphasis on wide resonances, for resonance masses above 1.6 TeV and focusing on simplified models of Dark Matter for the interpretation of the experimental results. A new method of estimating the QCD background is used, employing a data-driven methodology where events in a background dominated control region, 1.3< |Δη| < 2.6, are used to predict the background in the signal region, |Δη| < 1.3.
