Event Selection

The SM processes, especially \(W+\)jet events that naturally have large \(E_{\mathrm {T}}^{\mathrm {miss}}\), can result in final-state kinematics similar to that of the signal. Therefore, the signal events can not be enhanced by any kinematic selection requirements, and tight requirements on kinematics reduce the signal efficiency a lot. In this analysis, a dedicated topological trigger is developed to attain a higher signal efficiency. Kinematic selection criteria are applied to ensure a high trigger efficiency, and the vast majority of background events are removed by identifying a high-\(p_{\mathrm {T}}\) disappearing track in the event.
