    Configuration of the ATLAS Trigger System

    Full text link
    In this paper a conceptual overview is given of the software foreseen to configure the ATLAS trigger system. Two functional software prototypes have been developed to configure the ATLAS Level-1 emulation and the High-Level Trigger software. Emphasis has been put so far on following a consistent approach between the two trigger systems and on addressing their requirements, taking into account the specific use-case of the `Region-of-Interest' mechanism for the ATLAS Level-2 trigger. In the future the configuration of the two systems will be combined to ensure a consistent selection configuration for the entire ATLAS trigger system.Comment: Talk from the 2003 Computing in High Energy and Nuclear Physics (CHEP03), La Jolla, Ca, USA, March 2003, 8 pages, LaTeX, 9 eps figures.

    Charm counting in b and c events at LEP

    In this article the current status of the partial width R/sub c//sup 0/ of the Z/sup 0/ to cc and of the multiplicity n/sub c/ of charm quarks per b decay are discussed. Final results presented by the LEP experiments using their full LEP 1 data sets lead to a more precise determination of both quantities. The new LEP and SLC averages are R /sub c//sup 0/=0.1674+or-0.0038 and n/sub c/=1.149+or-0.036. (18 refs)

    The DELPHI Silicon Tracker in the global pattern recognition

    Full text link
    ALEPH and DELPHI were the first experiments operating a silicon vertex detector at LEP. During the past 10 years of data taking the DELPHI Silicon Tracker was upgraded three times to follow the different tracking requirements for LEP 1 and LEP 2 as well as to improve the tracking performance. Several steps in the development of the pattern recognition software were done in order to understand and fully exploit the silicon tracker information. This article gives an overview of the final algorithms and concepts of the track reconstruction using the Silicon Tracker in DELPHI.Comment: Talk given at the 8th International Workshop on Vertex Detectors, Vertex'99, Texel, Nederland

    Single Track Performance of the Inner Detector New Track Reconstruction (NEWT)

    Get PDF
    In a previous series of documents we have presented the new ATLAS track reconstruction chain (NEWT) and several of the involved components. It has become the default reconstruction application for the Inner Detector. However, a large scale validation of the reconstruction performance in both efficiency and track resolutions has not been given yet. This documents presents the results of a systematic single track validation of the new track reconstruction and puts it in comparison with results obtained with different reconstruction applications

    Concepts, Design and Implementation of the ATLAS New Tracking (NEWT)

    Get PDF
    The track reconstruction of modern high energy physics experiments is a very complex task that puts stringent requirements onto the software realisation. The ATLAS track reconstruction software has been in the past dominated by a collection of individual packages, each of which incorporating a different intrinsic event data model, different data flow sequences and calibration data. Invoked by the Final Report of the Reconstruction Task Force, the ATLAS track reconstruction has undergone a major design revolution to ensure maintainability during the long lifetime of the ATLAS experiment and the flexibility needed for the startup phase. The entire software chain has been re-organised in modular components and a common Event Data Model has been deployed during the last three years. A complete new track reconstruction that concentrates on common tools aimed to be used by both ATLAS tracking devices, the Inner Detector and the Muon System, has been established. It has been already used during many large scale tests with data from Monte Carlo simulation and from detector commissioning projects such as the combined test beam 2004 and cosmic ray events. This document concentrates on the technical and conceptual details of the newly developed track reconstruction, also known as New Tracking
