Abstract

This analysis examines the extraneous leptons that have been simulated in reconstructed doubly-charged Higgs events. When the code that simulates these events is run, some of the produced events have five leptons indicating an extra lepton. This is an issue because doubly charged Higgs bosons decay into two leptons each, which creates a total of four leptons per event. We present our analysis of how and where these extraneous leptons are being added, and then fix this in order to produce accurate data and histograms. This is significant because it provides an understanding of the signal sample of our analysis.

Examination of extraneous leptons in simulated doubly charged Higgs events

This analysis examines the extraneous leptons that have been simulated in reconstructed doubly-charged Higgs events. When the code that simulates these events is run, some of the produced events have five leptons indicating an extra lepton. This is an issue because doubly charged Higgs bosons decay into two leptons each, which creates a total of four leptons per event. We present our analysis of how and where these extraneous leptons are being added, and then fix this in order to produce accurate data and histograms. This is significant because it provides an understanding of the signal sample of our analysis.
