Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We propose a strategy for searching for theoretically-unanticipated new physics which avoids a large trials factor by focusing on experimental strengths. Searches for resonances decaying into pairs of visible particles are experimentally very powerful due to the localized mass peaks and have a rich history of discovery. Yet, due to a focus on subsets of theoretically-motivated models, the landscape of such resonances is far from thoroughly explored. We survey the existing set of searches, identify untapped experimental opportunities and discuss the theoretical constraints on models which would generate such resonances.
