The models that have been considered so far are described, and the derived limits are displayed. For each model, the results from the latest dataset that has been studied are shown by default, but an archive of the limits from previously studied datasets is also provided, so that the progression can be observed as more data are added.
Simplified DM Models¶
Searches for new physics at the LHC are often interpreted in terms of simplified models. Simplified models provide a generic framework for analysing experimental signatures using a small number of parameters, such as masses and couplings of new fields, without reference to specific UV-complete models. Such an approach is particularly well-suited for interpreting the search for dark matter in a more model-independent way, and can be used to connect results from the LHC with dark matter searches in direct detection and from the observation of cosmic rays.
