Case A

../../_images/combinedHybrid.png

Image updated for Rivet 3.0.1, 30/10/2019

Case B

../../_images/combinedHybrid1.png

Image updated for Rivet 3.0.1, 30/10/2019.

Note decrease in sensitivity at low masses. This is due to a bug in the isolation criteria for leptons applied in ATLAS_2012_I1203852. Bug was present in Rivet 2.7, fixed in 3.0

Case C

Image updated for Rivet 3.0.1, 30/10/2019.

Note decrease in sensitivity at low masses as for Case B

Case D

Image updated for Rivet 3.0.1, 31/10/2019.

Case E

The first Figure below is from the paper, and the second Figure is an updated scan using Contur 2.0.x and Rivet 3.1.4 where the colour indicates the most sensitive analysis pool at each scan point. An increase in sensitivity is visible particularly in the high mass region, driven largely by the addition of the ATLAS run 2 inclusive four lepton measurement [71].
