Main idea: Would an observed excess of j+MET events allow for a distinction of the underlying model? Can the monojet pT distribution differentiate among different SMDM couplings? An enhancement of the signal for large pT occurs if the coupling is proportional to the exchanged momentum; this happens for a derivative coupling, typically encountered, e.g., in compositeness models.
Simplest example: The SM plus one singlet scalar DM, including a dim6 operator coupling the Higgs doublet to the DM. A recent reference on this model: http://inspirehep.net/record/1341060?ln=en , see section 3.1.1, in particular eq.(3.3) for the HiggsDMDM coupling, if somebody is interested to generate the related pT distribution…
A preliminary study of the monojet signature in this model was performed in the master thesis by Sylvain Lacroix (2013, in French): see section 3.9 for the case without derivative coupling, and section 4.3 for the addition of the derivative operator.
