Abstract

Since the famous discovery of the higgs boson, physicists around the world have been trying to create a new standard model of particle physics.The discovery of the higgs boson revealed flaws in the current standard model, and a new model would revolutionize particle physics. The search for particles predicted by the Supersymmetric (SUSY) model may yield results that prove the SUSY model of physics and find new physics. This current project is one of many data analysis projects in the particle search. This project is an analysis of data retrieved from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) laboratory, and LHC (Large Hadron Collider) Physics Center (LPC) at Fermilab to see if there is a significant difference between the data analysis of the two labs. Without accurate and agreeing datasets, further data analysis performed by the two joint groups may have fatal errors and inaccuracies. We compare the datasets with graphs such as histograms and ratio plots and analyze the similarity of the graphs in order resolve any differences in classifications in the datasets of each group. We are projected to complete this project before this coming summer, and then will proceed to work on other analysis projects.
