This page contains the description of a few baseline muon selections recommended by the muon POG and currently recommended working points for muon isolation. Corresponding efficiency measurements can be found on MuonReferenceEffs twiki.

Recommendations for muon momentum assignment are summarized in MuonReferenceResolution.

The selections described here assume to start from the basic object reco::Muon or pat::Muon, which have equivalent functionalities.

Baseline muon selections for 2012 data (CMSSW 52X and above)

From CMSSW_5_3_10 all the standard muon IDs are available as boolean selectors, as described HERE. The most widely used selections are the Loose and the Tight ID. Both of them are using the Particle-Flow event description. Please start considering these two options if your analysis makes use of the Particle-Flow algorithm.

Loose Muon

bool muon::isLooseMuon (const reco::Muon & recoMu);   
Particle identified as a muon by the Particle Flow event reconstruction. Studied in MUO-10-004.

Plain-text description Technical description Comments
Particle-Flow muon id recoMu.isPFMuon() Can be complemented by muon quality cuts similar to those used in the Tight Muon selection.
Is Global OR Tracker Muon recoMu.isGlobalMuon() || recoMu.isTrackerMuon() Avoid using muons which are only Standalone Muons. (~0.01% of PF muons)
Note: For multi-muon analysis the Loose Muon id should be complemented with a DeltaR cut between the muon pairs (DeltaR<0.02) in order to suppress contribution from split tracks. (See details on G. Petrucciani's talk)

Soft Muon

New Version (recommended)

Developed in BPH. For more details, see I. Krätschmer's talk.

Please consider this option ONLY if you do not make use of the Particle-Flow event description in your analysis. In case you do, start from the Loose ID and then evaluate possible further quality cuts.

WARNING: please note that the boolean selector muon::isSoftMuon(...) should not be used for CMSSW versions before CMSSW_5_3_28 (nor in any other release series prior to CMSSW_7_2_5 or CMSSW_7_3_0), since an old and deprecated selection is implemented then. For any analysis based on CMSSW versions prior to CMSSW_5_3_28 , please use the list of cuts below instead.

Plain-text description Technical description Comments
Tracker track matched with at least one muon segment (in any station) in both X and Y coordinates (< 3σ) ( TMOneStationTight) and arbitrated muon::isGoodMuon(recoMu, TMOneStationTight) Loose requirement, which can be tightened further (e.g., by requiring at least two matched segments) if needed
Cut on number of tracker layers with hits > 5 recoMu.innerTrack()->hitPattern().trackerLayersWithMeasurement() > 5 To guarantee a good pT measurement, for which some minimal number of measurement points in the tracker is needed.
Also suppresses muons from decays in flight.

Loose compatibility with the PV or rather with the beamspot

Old Version (deprecated)

bool muon::isSoftMuon(const reco::Muon & recoMu, const reco::Vertex & vtx);

Developed in BPH.

Plain-text description Technical description Comments
Tracker track matched with at least one muon segment (in any station) in both X and Y coordinates (< 3σ) ( TMOneStationTight) and arbitrated muon::isGoodMuon(recoMu, TMOneStationTight) Loose requirement, which can be tightened further (e.g., by requiring at least two matched segments) if needed

χ2/ndof of the tracker-muon track fit < 1.8 recoMu.innerTrack()->normalizedChi2() < 1.8 To suppress hadronic punch-through and muons from decays in flight
Loose transverse and longitudinal impact parameter cuts, dxy < 3 cm and dz < 30 cm w.r.t. the primary vertex fabs(recoMu.innerTrack()->dxy(vertex->position())) < 3.
&& fabs(recoMu.innerTrack()->dz(vertex->position())) < 30.
Loose compatibility with the PV or rather with the beamspot.
More details can be found at . The Soft Muon selection could be replaced by the Loose Muon selection (above), with additional quality cuts if needed.

Tight Muon

bool muon::isTightMuon(const reco::Muon & recoMu, const reco::Vertex & vtx);

Global muon with additional muon quality requirements. Studied in MUO-10-002 and MUO-10-004; widely used in physics analyses. Tight Muon ID selects a subset of the Particle-Flow muons.

Plain-text description Technical description Comments
The candidate is reconstructed as a Global Muon recoMu.isGlobalMuon()  
Particle-Flow muon id recoMu.isPFMuon() the exclusive effect of this requirement is very small, i.e. PFMuon is keeping almost all Tight Muons without this cut
χ2/ndof of the global-muon track fit < 10 recoMu.globalTrack()->normalizedChi2() < 10. To suppress hadronic punch-through and muons from decays in flight (see CMS AN 2008/098). This cut might need to be re-tuned due to the change to fully segment based global fit in 50X releases and later. It will need a retuning when muon APEs will be activated in the global track fit.
At least one muon chamber hit included in the global-muon track fit recoMu.globalTrack()->hitPattern().numberOfValidMuonHits() > 0 To suppress hadronic punch-through and muons from decays in flight.
Muon segments in at least two muon stations
This implies that the muon is also an arbitrated tracker muon, see SWGuideTrackerMuons
recoMu.numberOfMatchedStations() > 1 To suppress punch-through and accidental track-to-segment matches.
Also makes selection consistent with the logic of the muon trigger, which requires segments in at least two muon stations to obtain a meaningful estimate of the muon pT.
Its tracker track has transverse impact parameter dxy < 2 mm w.r.t. the primary vertex fabs(recoMu.muonBestTrack()->dxy(vertex->position())) < 0.2
Or dB() < 0.2 on pat::Muon [1]
To suppress cosmic muons and further suppress muons from decays in flight (see CMS AN 2008/098).
The 2 mm cut preserves efficiency for muons from decays of b and c hadrons. It is a loose cut and can be tightened further with minimal loss of efficiency for prompt muons if background from cosmic muons is an issue. Another way to obtain a better cosmic-ray suppression is to complement the dxy cut with a cut on the opening angle α or use a dedicated cosmic-id algorithm (see Section 7.1 of MUO-10-004). innerTrack() is also supported for dxy cut, as the performance of the two is very close.
The longitudinal distance of the tracker track wrt. the primary vertex is dz < 5 mm fabs(recoMu.muonBestTrack()->dz(vertex->position())) < 0.5 Loose cut to further suppress cosmic muons, muons from decays in flight and tracks from PU. innerTrack() is also supported for dz cut, as the performance of the two is very close.
Number of pixel hits > 0 recoMu.innerTrack()->hitPattern().numberOfValidPixelHits() > 0 To further suppress muons from decays in flight.
Cut on number of tracker layers with hits >5 recoMu.innerTrack()->hitPattern().trackerLayersWithMeasurement() > 5 To guarantee a good pT measurement, for which some minimal number of measurement points in the tracker is needed.
Also suppresses muons from decays in flight.

  • [1] The most accurate way of computing this value is by using IPTools ( example). The dB() method of the pat::Muon uses the version in IPTools, so there are tiny differences between the values returned by dxy(vertex->position()) and dB().
Work in progress, under construction To further suppress muons from decays in flight, a cut on kink finder χ2/ndof<20 is a good option. It is a loose cut with efficiency close to 100% and DIF rejection about 5%. For more details see talk by G. Petrucciani in muon POG. This cut is considered to become part of Tight Muon in summer. Feedback from its use is appreciated.

HighPT Muon

This selection does not use the Particle Flow algorithm. It is aimed to the best reconstruction of the muon track parameters for high-pt muons (pT > 200 GeV) without relying on external informations on the event. In this high-pt region the muon detectors can improve the momentum resolution of the inner tracker. Please consider this option ONLY if you do not use the Particle Flow event description in your analysis. If you do, start from the Loose (or Tight) ID and then evaluate possible addition (or removal) of further quality cuts . The best possible pt assignment as obtained from the (new) TuneP can be used anyway independently of the adopted selection.

New HighPT Version (recommended)

bool muon::isHighPtMuon(const reco::Muon & recoMu, const reco::Vertex & vtx);
bool muon::isHighPtMuon(const reco::Muon & recoMu, const reco::Vertex & vtx, muon::TunePType = muon::improvedTuneP);
WARNING: the HighPt selector uses by default the new Tune P momentum assignment. The last (optional) parameter: enum TunePType{defaultTuneP, improvedTuneP} is used to choose between old and new Tune P, but it defaults to new Tune P. To have access to the best muon track determined by the new Tune P algorithm you can use the function:
reco::TrackRef muon::improvedMuonBestTrack(const reco::Muon & recoMu, muon::improvedTuneP);
Please pay attention that reco::Muon::muonBestTrack() will continue to give the best track determined by the OLD Tune P, as the other methods retrieving the kinematical variables like reco::Muon::p4(), reco::Muon::pt(), etc... Hence when you use the New Tune P and the New HighPt Muon selector you have to obtain the muon momentum from the correct muon track by the improvedMuonBestTrack method.

The above code is EQUIVALENT to the recipe which has been existing since quite some time and is given here below.

The updated version of the muon momentum assignment logic (i.e. new Tune P) is available starting from CMSSW_5_3_6_patch1 and CMSSW_5_3_7 (backports to 5XY and 44X are also available, see below). Thanks to internal rejection of misreconstructed tracks based on dpT/pT this has much improved handling of momentum misassignment, which makes it possible to loosen the cut on tracker layers to 5, which is the value used in the Tight muon ID.

To use the new version of TuneP you have to follow these steps:

  1. Either run CMSSW_5_3_6_patch1 (or newer) or if you need to keep using an older CMSSW_5XY version check out V09-04-03-02 DataFormats/MuonReco (if you have problems getting CMSSW to compile please do also addpkg RecoMuon/MuonIdentification).
  2. #include "DataFormats/MuonReco/interface/MuonCocktails.h" add this to your analysis code
  3. reco::TrackRef cktTrack = (muon::tevOptimized(*recoMu, 200, 17., 40., 0.25)).first; call to get the optimal muon track
  4. cktTrack->pt() - to get the pT of the muon.

Running in CMSSW_44X requires two small modifications to the above procedure:

  1. The code to check out is V09-01-05-01 DataFormats/MuonReco.
  2. the call to the tevOptimized function should be reco::TrackRef cktTrack = (muon::tevOptimized(*recoMu, 200, 30., 0., 0.25));.

Then you can apply the new HighPT ID, which still differs from Tight Muon selection in the following points:

  • The Particle-Flow muon id is not required
  • The cut χ2/ndof of the global-muon track fit < 10 is not applied
  • An additional requirement of dpT/pTfor the track used for momentum determination is applied, i.e. cktTrack->ptError()/cktTrack->pt()<0.3
  • The cuts applied on recoMu.muonBestTrack (impact parameter cuts) need to be applied to cktTrack since this is the new best track now.

About the tevOptimized function istelf: The modified TuneP algorithm adds track selection based on track dpT/pT, the threshold for this cut is controlled by the last (fifth) parameter of muon::tevOptimized. This parameter is only present in the new version of the code. The recommended value is 0.25. Passing a value of -1 will switch the dpT/pT cut off altogether, effectively reverting to the old version of TuneP. Parameters #3 and #4 are thresholds for switching between track fits in the TuneP logic. In CMSSW_53X the default values of the parameters are muon::tevOptimized(*recoMu, 200, 4., 6., -1.), which exactly reproduces the old behavior of the algorithm, 4 and 6 are the old thresholds.

Old HighPT Version (deprecated)

bool muon::isHighPtMuon(const reco::Muon & recoMu, const reco::Vertex & vtx, muon::TunePType = muon::defaultTuneP);
The old HighPT Muon selection differs from the Tight Muon selection in 3 points:
  • The Particle-Flow muon id is not required
  • The cut χ2/ndof of the global-muon track fit < 10 is not applied
  • The cut track()->hitPattern().trackerLayersWithMeasurement() > 8 is applied in order to suppress muons with largely mis-measured pT
    • this cut is known to introduce inefficiency of about 5% due to tracking changes in CMSSW 52X. Please switch to the new HighPT definition in which the efficiency loss is recovered.

Muon Isolation

Recommended working points:

Algorithm Type Expression PU correction Cone size (ΔR) Tight cut Loose cut
Subdetector based Tracker relative (∑pT(TRK))/pT none 0.3 0.05 0.10
PF based Combined relative (∑ET(chHad from PV)+∑ET(neutHad)+∑ET(photons))/pT Reference correction using DeltaB corrections (for reference see here) 0.4 0.12 0.20
PF based MVA Work in progress, under construction converging on set of variables        

Accessing PF Isolation from reco::Muon

  • The PF based isolation can be accessed by the reco::Muon using the following methods
              const MuonPFIsolation& pfIsolationR03() ///Cone of 0.3
              const MuonPFIsolation& pfIsolationR04() /// Cone of 0.4-Suggested  
          
    The MuonPFIsolation struct includes the following members:
    • sumChargedHadronPt: Sum Pt of the charged Hadrons
    • sumChargedParticlePt: Sum Pt of all charged particles (including PF electrons and muons). Not suggested for cases like H->WW /ZZ where two muons can fall in the same cone
    • sumNeutralHadronEt: Sum Et of the neutral hadrons
    • sumPhotonEt: Sum Et of PF photonds
    • sumNeutralHadronEtHighThreshold: Sum of the neutral hadron Et with a higher threshold for the candidates(1 GeV instead of 0.5)
    • sumPhotonEtHighThreshold: Sum of the PF photons Et with higher threshold (1 GeV instead of 0.5)
    • sumPUPt; Sum Pt of the charged particles in the cone of interest but with particles not originating from the primary vertex(for PU corrections)

  • Proposed Configuration(DeltaBeta corrections)at cone of 0.4: I = [sumChargedHadronPt+ max(0.,sumNeutralHadronPt+sumPhotonPt-0.5sumPUPt]/pt
    • The factor 0.5 corresponds to a naive average of neutral to charged particles and it has been measured in jets in PFT-10-002 etc. See also this talk by M. Bachtis at the Muon POG
    • Reference efficiency measurements will be provided for this definition of PFIsoCorr.

  • Alternatively, for analysis using rho correction, Effective Areas are also provided using following prescription:
    • Correction to be done as PFIsoCorr = PF(ChHad PFNoPU) + Max ((PF(Nh+Ph) - ρ’EACombined),0.0)) where ρ’=max(ρ,0.0) and with a 0.5 GeV threshold on neutrals
    • Rho is neutral rho, defined in full tracker acceptance, with a 0.5 GeV threshold on neutrals. This can be taken, starting from 50X, from the event directly (double_kt6PFJetsCentralNeutral_rho_RECO.obj) For its exact definition see [2].
    • Values of Effective Areas EACombined are provided in this link, page 9 (see PF Combined Column, DeltaR >0/4 )
    • [2] kt6PFJetsCentralNeutral = kt6PFJets.clone( src = cms.InputTag("pfAllNeutralHadronsAndPhotons"), Ghost_EtaMax = cms.double(3.1), Rho_EtaMax = cms.double(2.5), inputEtMin = cms.double(0.5) )

Along with EGM POG we do not intend to support subdetector based combined relative isolation anymore since it has in general worse performance than PF based combined relative isolation (see e.g. MUO-10-004) and is less convenient to use (PU corrections, lepton subtraction).

Basline muon selections for 2011 data (CMSSW 44X and below)

Tight Muon selection

Global muon with additional muon quality reqirements. Studied in MUO-10-002 and MUO-10-004; widely used in physics analyses. Starting from 50X release this set of selection is into an omni-comprehensive selector in DataFormats/MuonReco/interface/MuonSelectors.h

Plain-text description Technical description Comments
The candidate is reconstructed as a Global Muon recoMu.isGlobalMuon() Requiring that this muon is also PF muon leads to PFTight selection
χ2/ndof of the global-muon track fit < 10 recoMu.globalTrack()->normalizedChi2() < 10. To suppress hadronic punch-through and muons from decays in flight (see CMS AN 2008/098).
As showering muons typically have larger χ2/ndof (see Section 2.4.1 of CMS AN 2011/278), this cut should be loosened or dropped for high-pT muons.
At least one muon chamber hit included in the global-muon track fit recoMu.globalTrack()->hitPattern().numberOfValidMuonHits() > 0 To suppress hadronic punch-through and muons from decays in flight [1].
Muon segments in at least two muon stations
This implies that the muon is also an arbitrated tracker muon, see SWGuideTrackerMuons
recoMu.numberOfMatchedStations() > 1 To suppress punch-through and accidental track-to-segment matches.
Also makes selection consistent with the logic of the muon trigger, which requires segments in at least two muon stations to obtain a meaningful estimate of the muon pT.
Its tracker track has transverse impact parameter dxy < 2 mm w.r.t. the primary vertex [2] fabs(recoMu.innerTrack()->dxy(vertex->position())) < 0.2

The 2 mm cut preserves efficiency for muons from decays of b and c hadrons. It is a loose cut and can be tightened further with minimal loss of efficiency for prompt muons if background from cosmic muons is an issue. Another way to obtain a better cosmic-ray suppression is to complement the dxy cut with a cut on the opening angle α or use a dedicated cosmic-id algorithm (see Section 7.1 of MUO-10-004).
Number of pixel hits > 0 recoMu.innerTrack()->hitPattern().numberOfValidPixelHits() > 0 To further suppress muons from decays in flight.
Number of tracker layers with hits > 8 [4] track()->hitPattern().trackerLayersWithMeasurement() > 8 To guarantee a good pT measurement, for which some minimal number of measurement points in the tracker is needed.
Also suppresses muons from decays in flight.

  • [1] The combination of this and above two requirements is implemented in the reco::Muon as GlobalMuonPromptTight selector, which is returned by muon::isGoodMuon(recoMu, GlobalMuonPromptTight). More details can be found in the WorkBook section on muon identification.
  • [2] Some analyses use the cut w.r.t. the beam spot position. Since the 2 mm cut is very loose, this makes no difference.
  • [3] To be pedantic, the most accurate way of computing this value is by using ÏPTools ( example). The dB() method of the pat::Muon uses the version in ÏPTools, so there are tiny differences between the values returned by dxy(vertex->position()) and dB().
  • [4] The older version of this cut is recoMu.innerTrack()->hitPattern().numberOfValidTrackerHits() > 10 and is also supported to ease the transition:
    • the cut on Nlayers > 8 has almost the same efficiency as the cut on Nhits > 10, see example plot (simulated muons with pT = 50 GeV) Hide plot eff_all.png
    • at the same time, it gives a better rejection of muons with grossly mismeasured pT: e.g., the fraction of simulated 50 GeV muons reconstructed with pT > 100 GeV drops by a factor of 2 compared with the cut on Nhits > 10.
      For details, see talks by C. Jarvis at the muon POG meetings on June 16, 2011 and Sept. 5, 2011.

OLD Soft Muon selection (being phased out)

Tracker muon with additional requirements. Studied in MUO-10-002 and MUO-10-004. Has efficiency higher than that of global muons at low (< 10 GeV) pT and for muons having other muons in the vicinity (e.g., muons from J/ψ decays and hypothetical collimated muons); as a result, used in B physics analyses and some searches conducted in Exotica group.

A large number of other selectors for tracker muons is available, see SWGuideTrackerMuons. A systematic study of signal efficiency vs background rejection given by these selectors is very welcome.
