Abstract:
Dark matter has been searched for at colliders in a largely model independent fashion by looking for an excess number of events involving a single jet, or photon, and missing energy. In this talk, I will introduce the possibility of looking for excesses in more inclusive jet channels. In particular, I will present an adaptation of the recent CMS "Razor" analysis from a search for supersymmetry to a search for DM and estimate the potential reach of such an analysis.
