Description

Students will optimize the event selection criteria by using simulated data from the ATLAS experiment at CERN.The goal is to "discover" the Higgs boson through its decay to leptons.They will use the properties of the new boson to isolate its signature from the copius backgrounds which decay to similar products.

Prior Knowledge Requirements
