Analysis of early data from the ATLAS experiment towards H+ searches
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
In the ATLAS experiment software plays a central role in data taking, reconstruction, and analysis. This thesis presents a set of analysis algorithms written for the ATLAS software framework Athena, towards H+ searches in the τ+jets channel. Data recorded by the ATLAS experiment for 900 GeV proton-proton collisions from 2009 and 7 TeV proton-proton collisions from 2010 are analyzed with these algorithms and compared to Monte Carlo. A search for top quarks is performed on 36 pb-1 of data, and the results are found to agree well with Monte Carlo.
