Title: An Exploration of Analysis Software at SLAC through the Study of X(3872)

Abstract

X(3872), a particle discovered by Belle Labs, has not yet been described in a sufficient enough way by any group to draw definitive conclusions about it. In order to verify the claims of Belle Labs and learn more about X(3872), Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (henceforth SLAC) has undertaken a project to analyze the particle, a subgroup of the BaBar project. The computing systems involved are complex; the tutorials for the software and new software releases both need constant testing and revision. Using a new software release, I tested tutorials for various software used by the BaBar group, including UNIX, Root, and CM2, in an effort to eventually analyze X(3872) data. The offline workbook for the BaBar software needs to be better maintained, and the CM2 tutorials need to be modified and updated. While none of my results contributed directly to the project (i.e. I have no results that add to information about X(3872)), improvement of the tutorials will streamline integration of new scientists into the BaBar group.
