Constraints on the Final Fermions of an Exotic Higgs Decay

Physical and Biological Sciences

Physics 182

In this paper, I analyze a theoretical decay chain of the Higgs boson to two fermions that involves dark matter particles, predicted by the NMSSM. I used Monte Carlo event generators and mathematical code to simulate this decay chain for varying masses of decay particles, with and without the presence of a particle jet. I found no non-obvious constraint on the angle between the final fermions, but my results illuminate the accuracy of and future applications for this problem-solving method in particle physics.
