Abstract

This chapter presents the results and interpretation of the analysis performed in Chap.  7. Once a theory has been described (Chap.  2), the data collected (Chaps.  3 and  4) and reconstructed (Chap.  5), analyzed and with systematics accounted for (Chap.  7), the search regions can be applied to data, compared to Monte Carlo signal and background models, and hypothesis testing performed to determine if new physics has been found.

Keywords

Validation Background-only fit Discovery fit Exclusion fit Likelihood-based tests of new physics Single-bin Multi-bin Unblinding Limits Gluino mass limits Acceptance
