Multijet Resonances at the Tevatron and the LHC

We propose a theoretically very simple class of theories beyond the Standard Model with a rich phenomenology that give rise to copious production of resonances at hadron colliders decaying to multijet final states. Such resonances are consistent with all present experimental bounds to date even if they are as light as a few hundred GeV, in which case they could be discovered using the (already present) Tevatron data. We describe search strategies at the Tevatron and the LHC in order to discover such resonances. We furthermore argue that similar searches can discover generic physics models which may have different microscopic descriptions but which also decay to multijet final states.
