dc.description.abstract In this thesis, the current vs. magnetic field relationships for four magnets, M1, M2, M3, and Hyperon of FNAL Experiment E781 (the charm baryon study) havel,een studied on the basis of algorithms involving sign corrections pertaining to remedying incorrect FNAL EPICURE readout system's current and magnetic field values for E78 I's 4 magnets.After analyzing previous BSU personnel's work involving re-averaging of the current and magnetic field output values for E78 1, further research was carried out in this thesis activity regarding the correction of the algebraic signs of certain current and magnetic field values in the FNAL EPICURE read out values inputted into E781' data bank.Firstly, a code was developed to merge the four files of current and magnetic fields for the four magnets of E78 1, all into one file. Then, an algorithm for a sign correction program was developed in order to both sort the merged data and correct the current and magnetic field signautomatically.In order to obtain a better understanding of the effect of the incorrect sign for a magnet's current and magnetic field on analysis results, a statistical result was summarized. Finally, some conclusions were obtained.
