Search for Anomalous Production of Di-photon+MET Events in 2 fb-1 of Data.

Results for di-photon signal region: two tight central photons with ET>13 GeV. The baseline sample is ~25% true di-photon events.
There are 31,116 events in the baseline sample before MET requirements.

Non-collision backgrounds: cosmic ray and beam halo muons showering in the detector material.
EWK backgrounds: mostly W+pho (e/tau->fake pho)  or W+jet (e/tau/jet->fake pho), with smaller contributions from Z(mumu)+2pho and Z(nunu)+2pho events
Fake MET: regular di-photon events and QCD pho-jet or jet-jet events where one or both photons are faked by a jet. Fake MET comes from energy mis-measurement
of jets or photons.

b) dependence of Gaussian width from Fig-a on sqrt(SumET) (eps).
