A Nonparametric Peak Finder Algorithm and Its Application in Searches for New Physics

Figure 2

Invariant mass of two jets generated with the PYTHIA Monte Carlo model. Several peaks seen in this figure were added using the Gaussian distributions with different widths and peak values (see the text). The peaks are found using the NPFinder algorithm which also estimates their statistical significance values as discussed in the text.
