Weakly-coupled TeV-scale particles may mediate the interactions between
normal matter and dark matter. If so, the LHC would produce dark matter through
these mediators, leading to the familiar "mono-X" search signatures, but the
mediators would also produce signals without missing momentum via the same
vertices involved in their production. This document from the LHC Dark Matter
Working Group suggests how to compare searches for these two types of signals
in case of vector and axial-vector mediators, based on a workshop that took
place on September 19/20, 2016 and subsequent discussions. These suggestions
include how to extend the spin-1 mediated simplified models already in
widespread use to include lepton couplings. This document also provides
analytic calculations of the relic density in the simplified models and reports
an issue that arose when ATLAS and CMS first began to use preliminary numerical
calculations of the dark matter relic density in these models.
