### Project 1

PDF for dark scalar boson (Click "Expand" to the right for more details -->):

- Determine the Probability Density Function (PDF) of the dark scalar gauge boson, S, for the process gamma proton -> eta + proton, eta -> S + pi0, S -> gamma gamma. Since the hypothetical S mass is unknown, the PDF has to be determined for all masses between ~ a few MeV/c^2 and ~ 420 MeV/c^2 scannable by JEF. This can be done in 3 steps:

- Determine PDF for fixed masses from histograms I will provide
- Parametrize the PDF vs mass and possibly vs incident photon-beam energy
- Toy Monte Carlo simulation study to show that the model is not introducing biases for our observables#:
