Abstract
&nbsp; <p style="MIN-HEIGHT: 14px; MARGIN: 0px"><i>If new particles are produced at the LHC, it is vital that we can extract as much information&nbsp;as possible from them about the underlying theory.&nbsp; I will discuss some recent work on extracting spin information from invariant mass distributions of new particles.&nbsp; I will then introduce the&nbsp;Kullback-Leibler method of quantifying our ability to distinguish different scenarios.</i> &nbsp;
