Dark Matter Benchmark Models for Early LHC Run 2 Searches Report of the ATLAS/CMS Dark Matter Forum

Diagram for EFT operators giving rise to a Higgs$+E_T^{miss}$ signature.


This document is the final report of the ATLAS-CMS Dark Matter Forum, a forum organized by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations with the participation of experts on theories of Dark Matter, to select a minimal basis set of dark matter simplified models that should support the design of the early LHC Run-2 searches. A prioritized, compact set of benchmark models is proposed, accompanied by studies of the parameter space of these models and a repository of generator implementations. This report also addresses how to apply the Effective Field Theory formalism for collider searches and present the results of such interpretations.
