ATLAS Open Data: Data visualisation and educational physics analysis to re-discover the Higgs boson
October 13, 2020
ATLAS Open Data aims to introduce students to particle-physics analysis without an initial exposure to the coding behind, with tools for interactive data visualisation. Web-based resources such as the “Histogram Analyser” are easy to use, yet informative. Students intrigued by the physics can then build up to coding an analysis by running Jupyter notebooks out of the box. Such notebooks invite them to read some short pieces of code, but without asking them to write any, just yet. With the use of these tools and documentation, students can be guided to find the Higgs boson with only their mouse!

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
