Abstract

PYTHIA is a standardized tool for simulating high-energy physics collisions. It can generate physics events based on different physics models. We can generate events with PYTHIA much faster than we can fully reconstruct them with a detector simulation. These generated events can be analyzed for a generator-level study as if they were results. We are examining distributions of invariant masses in order to find the effect of different physics parameters. Our job is to investigate the effects of the mass scale and number of extra dimensions on the output of PYTHIA when using the ADD extra dimensions model. We are doing this by comparing the invariant mass distributions of the outputs to find out whether our parameter adjustments affected the results.
