Title: The HPS experiment

Abstract

With the experimental discovery of the Higgs boson, the Standard Model has been considered veri ed in all its previsions. The Standard Model, though, is still considered an incomplete theory, because it fails to address many theoretical and phenomenological issues. Among those, it doesn't provide any viable Dark Matter candidate. Many Beyond-Standard Model theories, such as the Supersymmetric Standard Model, provide possible solutions. In this work we have reported the experimental observations that led to considerate the existence of a new Force, mediated by a new massive vector boson, that could address all the observed phenomenology. This new dark Force could open an observational channel between the Standard Model and a new Dark Sector, convey by the interaction of the Standard Model photon with the massive dark photon, also called the A'. Purpose of this work was to develop an independent study of the background processes and the implementation of an independent event generator, to better understand the kinematics of the produced particles in the process e - +W → e - +W' + e + + e - and validate, or invalidate, the o cial event generator.
