Abstract

In this activity we try to reproduce the XENON100 direct dark matter search results from 224 live days of data taken between February 2011 and March 2012. The statistical approach to model signal and background in the profile likelihood analysis is presented and the procedure used by the XENON100 collaboration to interpret the results is partially implemented.
