Abstract: Data-data comparisons have been used in High Energy Physics measurements for the best part of a century in a number of sub fields (e.g. ratios of cross sections in flavour physics). Nevertheless, data-data comparisons are rarely the driving force motivating LHC “Beyond Standard Model” (BSM) searches for supersymmetry and leptoquarks where the majority of searches instead compare data to a signal model generated by Monte Carlo methods. This talk hopes to discuss some of the consequences of making data-data comparison a starting-point rather than a way-point in the development of BSM searches. Applications to searches for violation of parity will be discussed in detail, perhaps aided by considerations relating to alien invasion of CERN ’s Restaurant 1 or difficulties faced by malacologists. Tests of charge-favour symmetry violation through searches for emus will be discussed if time permits.

This talk is part of the HEP phenomenology joint Cavendish-DAMTP seminar series.
