p p > missing ET + jets What could one say from this? We know there would be many different models that would fit into this signature. Therefore, there are a few questions we would like to answer: * Can we divide these models into classes? * If yes, what would be the best variable to separate these classes of models? * Could we have a correspondence between real observables and these classes of theories?! * What would be the best observables to do this job? * What could we affirm for the invisible particles from thes observables? (For example, the number of particle? The spin? If it is massive or massless?) To sumarize, the idea is to go from the signature -----> models, and not the usual other way around! ===== III. Strategy ===== First, we separe the production of invisible particles into 2 classes: production and decay. '''Production''': Pn => p p > X1 X2 .. Xn + jets (n from the number of invisibles) '''Decay''': Dn => p p > Y1 Y2 ... > X1 X2 .. Xn + jets being X the invisible particles, and Y the parent particle which will generate the invisible particles. Second, we identify classes of models separated into the definitions of production, decay and or a misture of both. In the last session here, we have a list of possible models, signatures divided into groups classified by product/decay. '''On 4/11/2011 we have completed the table (section V) as much as possible, to organize the discussion how to start the analysis.''' Third, we look for variables to distinguish models into the same classes. Examples are the mass (massive or massless) or spin of the invisible particle. Finally, we look at observables and try to relate them to each class of models. We would like to find out if we have one (or more) observables that can be used to distinguish classes of models. ===== IV.
