Daughter Particle Types

The following graph represents daughter particle types produced by a pool of gamma and proton interactions, focusing on particle types 1-6. We find that for the given data set that there is a subtle although noticeable difference between the daughter particles produced by both gamma and proton parents between the number of type five and six particles. This difference therefore provides a possible means of particle identification and differentiation.


As a result we find that daughter particle types produced by both gamma and proton parents is similar, although through use of a log scale function the differences between particle types five and six, the muon particle and antiparticle, μ±, is made more clear, therefore we find evidence that muons are a possible means of parent particle differentiation.
