Abstract

This analysis focuses on automating the generation of dark photon samples and generating background plots for dark photons. The current CRAB sample generation takes in a dataset name, generator fragment, the number of events, and the number of jobs to split the events up into. To generate the samples to be used in our analyses, the GEN, SIM, DIGIPremix, HLT, RECO, and MiniAOD steps need to be manually run over each job. To automate the progression of jobs through these steps Bash and Python scripts were created for starting jobs, checking their progress, and passing them onto the next step when ready. As one application of this framework, plots of the invariant mass, transverse momentum, and leading lepton transverse momentum were generated in an attempt to separate the signal from the background.
