What Happens When Energy Goes Missing?

Article: Performance of algorithms that reconstruct missing transverse momentum in ?s = 8 TeV proton-proton collisions in the ATLAS detector Authors: The ATLAS Collaboration Reference: arXiv:1609.09324 The ATLAS experiment recently released a note detailing the nature and performance of algorithms designed to calculate what is perhaps the most difficult quantity in any LHC event: missing t
