Search for Large Extra Dimensions with D0 at the Tevatron

Piyali Banerjee

I will discuss the context of my recent Physical Review Letter on the search for Large Extra Dimensions in the ppbar collider at Fermilab. 
The idea of Large extra dimensions is an attractive alternative theory for explaining the hierarchy problem. I will ty to motivate the need for such a theory and briefly explain the salient features of this theory. I will then describe the search for these extra dimensions with 1.1 fb-1 of Tevatron data. Since we have not observed any Large extra dimensions with the present data, we have proceeded to set limits on the parameters of this theory. I will discuss the techniques used to analyze the data, the signal Monte Carlo used to model the theory, various systematic uncertainties that went into the analysis, and the technique used to set limits on the parameters of this theory.
