Model-independent and quasi-model-independent search for new physics at CDF
Tim Stelzer and Fabio Maltoni have provided particularly valuable assistance in the estimation of standard model backgrounds. Sergey Alekhin provided helpful correspondence in understanding the theoretical uncertainties on W and Z production imposed as constraints on the Vista correction factor fit. Sascha Caron provided insight gained from the general search at H1. Torbjörn Sjöstrand assisted in the understanding of Pythia’s treatment of parton showering applied to the Vista 3j ΔR(j2,j3) discrepancy. We thank the Fermilab staff and the technical staffs of the participating institutions for their vital contributions.
