SIGKILL vs SIGINT

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I googled up a bit and I'm aware that SIGKILL is ungraceful termination(signal #9) whereas SIGINT is on pressing the Ctrl+c and is not killing, but only interruption. But, what I find hard to understand is, even after doing a Ctrl+c, when I do a $ps, I don't see that process. Since it is only interrupted and not killed, shouldn't it still show up is the ps output. I'm not able to figure out what SIGINT does. Thanks. (Hardware)
