  • 09:49, 4 June 2010 diff hist +750 N File:Thesis Maeland.pdfTheories that include extra dimension, may change the Planck scale to the order of the electroweak symmetry breaking scale. This may allow for the creation of black hole and string balls at particle physics experiments, like those at the Large Hadron Collider. The decay of black holes and sting balls will have unique signatures, that allows us to discover them. The main focus for this thesis have been to studying the decay of simulated black holes and string balls. Where we have been focusing on methods to remove standard model backgrounds from our signal selection. If black hole and string balls are able to be produced at the Large Hadron Collider, we conclude that ATLAS will have great discovery potential for black holes and string balls. current
