Properties of Signal Events

This chapter gives an overview of the properties of signal events; signal production processes, expected signatures in the ATLAS detector, and properties of signal tracks. No SM processes predict the disappearing-track signature, therefore background events can be easily discarded by identifying a disappearing track in the event. However, \(p_{\mathrm {T}}\)-mismeasured tracks can mimic the same signature and could have high \(p_{\mathrm {T}}\). Therefore, the ways to suppress \(p_{\mathrm {T}}\)-mismeasured tracks are quite important, and details on them are summarized in Sect. 7.3.
