Likewise, a .bib file is provided in the database folder with references to all the ATLAS and CMS analyses used.
SModelS is based on a general procedure to decompose Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) collider signatures presenting a Z2 symmetry into Simplified Model Spectrum (SMS) topologies. Our method provides a way to cast BSM predictions for the LHC in a model independent framework, which can be directly confronted with the relevant experimental constraints. Our concrete implementation currently focusses on supersymmetry searches with missing energy, for which a large variety of SMS results from ATLAS and CMS are available. The main ingredients are
- the decomposition of the BSM spectrum into SMS topologies
- a database of experimental SMS results
the interface between decomposition and results database (to check limits)
Code and Database updates

For instructions on how to install SModelS, check the installation section in the manual.
Experimental results in the database
Same as above but including superseded analyses
Pretty validation plots for all analyses
We also provide an SMS dictionary explaining the Tx names used by SModelS

A wishlist regarding the presentation of SMS results was worked out at the 2013 Les Houches workshop, see this page.
