Developed data acquisition techniques and software at the Large Hadron Collider, ATLAS detector, in order to discover new Physics. Groundwork was set for new efficient ways of pattern generation that is used for data trimming and track reconstruction. By using clustering analysis, the simulation of pattern generation increased efficiency of the use of hardware used for data acquisition. Testing software in development for leading order and next to leading order particle physics calculations was done with input from Monte Carlo event generators. Initial code was also developed for testing various Parton Density functions from different collaborations to examine disparities in calculations.
