Synopsis:

Abstract:

Individual student’s work will include implementation and testing of a program for analysis of generated data sample. Background understanding of Monte Carlo generators for hadron collision will be explained. The course covers methods of data smearing and subsequent deconvolution of data. Basics understanding and usage of neural networks and machine learning will be covered.
