Bender: for interactive analysis in LHCb

  • Ostap Bender: (Russian: Остап Бендер; also Ostap-Suleyman-Berta-Maria-Bender-Bey, Bender-Zadunaysky, Ostap Ibragimovich) is a fictional con man who first appeared in the novel The Twelve Chairs written by Soviet authors Ilya Ilf and Yevgeni Petrov and released in January 1928.

What is Bender?

  • Bender is a python analysis environment relying heavily on LoKi and automated python<->C++ conversion factories.
  • Bender enables real-time analysis of a small number of events and fast prototyping of selections, ntuples, histograms, fitting, etc.
  • Bender adds the flexibility of python to the Gaudi C++ framework and brings the analyst much closer to the running code, with faster returns and a potentially faster turn-around analysis development cycle, much more reminiscent of pyroot/numpy.
  • Bender is a logical extension to GaudiPython and LoKi, see What's the difference between Python, GaudiPython, and Gaudi?
