    Optimized access to distributed relational database system

    No full text
    International audienceEfficient and friendly access to the large amount of data distributed over the wide area network is a challenge for the near future LCG experiments. The problem can be solved using current standard open technologies and tools. A JDBC standard soution has been chosen as a base for a comprehensive system for the relational data access and management. Widely available open tools have been reused and extended to satisfy HEP needs

    Using Java analysis studio as an inferface to the ATLAS offline framework

    International audienceHuge requirements on computing resources have made it difficult to run Frameworks of some new HEP experiments on the users' personal workstations. Fortunately, new software technology allows us to give users back at least a bit of the user-friendliness they were used to in the past. A Java Analysis Studio (JAS) plugin has been developed, which accesses the Python API of the Atlas Offline Framework (Athena) over the XML-RPC layer. This plugin gives a userthe full power of JAS over the resources otherwise only available within Athena. A user can access any Athena functionality and handle all results directly in JAS. Graphical adapters to some Athena services have been delivered to ease the access even further

    POOL File Catalog, Collection and Metadata Components

    Full text link
    The POOL project is the common persistency framework for the LHC experiments to store petabytes of experiment data and metadata in a distributed and grid enabled way. POOL is a hybrid event store consisting of a data streaming layer and a relational layer. This paper describes the design of file catalog, collection and metadata components which are not part of the data streaming layer of POOL and outlines how POOL aims to provide transparent and efficient data access for a wide range of environments and use cases - ranging from a large production site down to a single disconnected laptops. The file catalog is the central POOL component translating logical data references to physical data files in a grid environment. POOL collections with their associated metadata provide an abstract way of accessing experiment data via their logical grouping into sets of related data objects.Comment: Talk from the 2003 Computing in High Energy and Nuclear Physics (CHEP03), La Jolla, Ca, USA, March 2003, 4 pages, 1 eps figure, PSN MOKT00

    Feasibility of Beauty Baryon Polarization Measurement in Lambda0 J/psi Decay Channel by Atlas-LHC

    Full text link
    The possibility of beauty baryon polarization measurement by cascade decay angular distribution analysis in the channel Lambda0 J/psi --> p pi- l+ l- is demonstrated. The error analysis shows that in the proposed LHC experiment ATLAS at the luminosity 104pb‚ąí110^{4} pb^{-1} the polarization can be measured with the statistical precision better than őī=0.010\delta=0.010 for Lambda_b0 and őī=0.17\delta=0.17 for Xi_b0.Comment: 12 pages (LaTeX + AMS-LaTeX) and 3 figures in postscript (uuencoded, compressed tar file included at the end of the paper), PRA-HEP-94/

    Single hadron response measurement and calorimeter jet energy scale uncertainty with the ATLAS detector at the LHC

    The uncertainty on the calorimeter energy response to jets of particles is derived for the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). First, the calorimeter response to single isolated charged hadrons is measured and compared to the Monte Carlo simulation using proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of sqrt(s) = 900 GeV and 7 TeV collected during 2009 and 2010. Then, using the decay of K_s and Lambda particles, the calorimeter response to specific types of particles (positively and negatively charged pions, protons, and anti-protons) is measured and compared to the Monte Carlo predictions. Finally, the jet energy scale uncertainty is determined by propagating the response uncertainty for single charged and neutral particles to jets. The response uncertainty is 2-5% for central isolated hadrons and 1-3% for the final calorimeter jet energy scale.Comment: 24 pages plus author list (36 pages total), 23 figures, 1 table, submitted to European Physical Journal
