Minutes:

  • intro (no intro slides slides)

  • Cross check of simplified model with CMS (Yalcin Guler)

    • C: very nice to see the cross-sections of existing UFO (Bai & Berger) and Über-UFO (with consistent quantum number settings: Dirac DM, mediator coupling to RH up quarks only [DMSimp-t-S3D_uR]) agree within uncertainties

  • Update from DMSimp_t team on Über-UFO

    • Q/p7: “from the best signal regions” → which regions are these? (informed decision about binning and analysis optimisation for the future

      • A: one of the intermediate MET bins, will follow up by email

    • Q/p8-p9: how will this look like for BM2?

      • A: the analysis is still running, LXBATCH slow

        • C: DMSimp_t team very much welcomes contributions to study the model phenomenology. Technical setup etc can be provided to start smoothly

    • Q: did other individuals/teams approach you?

      • A: few people asked for further info about the UFO, in touch with them

    • AI: look at other signal configurations

  • Discussion:

    • General consensus:

      • The White Paper (WP) could be structured like this:

        • Begin with an introduction of the different spin/quantum number configurations for the DM and the mediator, 

        • show total cross-sections + basic kinematic distributions for representative benchmark models,

        • compare to existing UFOs

        • [possibly reinterpretation of existing ATLAS/CMS results]

        • Recommendations for interpreting future ATLAS/CMS results

        • It would be interesting to include a section on t-channel models beyond Minimal Flavour Violation

      • Writing the first part of the White Paper comes closer

        • AI: think about names for editing the paper

    • AI: it would be good to do more validations of the Über-UFO against existing implementations

    • AI: It would be good to identify names to be in charge of this effort from the experimental collaborations
