     37=== The Challenge ===
     38
     39Three "black boxes" are given, in the form of event files in the LHC Olympics format and a series of selected plots:
     40
     41   * Box A : [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/CernSummerSchool/A.lhco.gz Events]  Plots:  [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/CernSummerSchool/A-lhe.pdf Parton level]  [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/CernSummerSchool/A.pdf Detector level]
     42   * Box B : [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/CernSummerSchool/B.lhco.gz Events]   Plots:  [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/CernSummerSchool/B-lhe.pdf Parton level]   [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/CernSummerSchool/B.pdf Detector level]
     43   * Box C : [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/CernSummerSchool/C.lhco.gz Events]  Plots:  [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/CernSummerSchool/C-lhe.pdf Parton lelve]   [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/CernSummerSchool/C.pdf Detector level]
     44
     45Black boxes contain only signal events. The students are asked to pair up the boxes above with the following models and also answer to the questions:
     46
     47   * Model 1 : Extra Z (zp) : What its mass? Does it have Standard Model couplings to fermions?
     48   * Model 2 : Heavy Scalar (h): What its mass?  Is it a SM Higgs?
     49   * Model 3 : Extra W (wp+ or wp-) : What its mass? Does it have Standard Model couplings to fermions?
     50 
     51Useful extra information:
     52   * In the plots $H_T=\sum ||p_T^{vis}|| + E_T^{miss}$.
     53   * A SM-like  Z' would decay (more or less democratically) into: jet jet (uu~,cc~,dd~,ss~,bb~), t tbar (tt~), lept+lept- (e+e-,mu+mu-,ta+ta-), neutrino anti-neutrino (ve ve~,vm vm~,vt vt~). It could also have couplings to SM W and Z, and in that case would decay in to ZZ and W+W-.
     54   * An Higgs couple to particles with a strength which is proportional to the particle masses. A SM-like  heavy H would decay in to t tbar (tt~), W+W-, ZZ.   
     55   * A SM-like  W'+ would decay into: jet jet (ud~,cs~), t b (tb~), lept neutrino (e+ ve , mu+ vm, ta+ vt). It could also have couplings to SM W and Z, and in that case would decay in to ZW.
