For this purpose, the data runs through a detector simulation and is then processed by a user chosen selection of experimental analyses. These analyses are all defined by signal regions that can be compared to the experimental data with a multitude of statistical tools. Due to the large and continuously growing number of experimental a... Title of program: CheckMATE, AnalysisManager Catalogue Id: AEUT_v1_1 Nature of problem The LHC has delivered a wealth of new data that is now being analysed. Both ATLAS and CMS have performed many searches for new physics that theorists are eager to test their model against. However, tuning the detector simulations, understanding the particular analysis details and interpreting the results can be a tedious and repetitive task. Furthermore, new analyses are being constantly published by the experiments and might be not yet included in the official CheckMATE distribution.
