  • It seems you have not posted the whole panic Report. Did you install new Hardware? Does it happen when you unplug all devices? Also what is the Mac OS Version? – mike May 26 '16 at 14:20

It's a problem with the system files – try booting into Recovery Mode by restarting the computer and holding down Command + R.

After that, follow the steps to reinstall OS X. This article might help you.
