Stripping DST

The stripping DST contains the full DST, plus a MicroDST partition containing the full decay tree of the stripping line selected candidates. It also contains the necessary particle to primary vertex (PV) relations in order to guarantee that the same PV is used to apply further cuts and estimate PV-dependent quantities. If PV re-fitting has been used in the selection, the re-fitted PVs are also saved. The relations point to these.


Writing of DSTs is performed using the DSTWriter pattern. It uses the Stripping Framework behind the scened, and the StrippingConf configurable to provide a list of StrippingStreams. These are passed onto a DSTWriter, which prepares a self-contained GaudiSequencer that can then be passed to DaVinci(). There is one DST per stream, and it contains all the candidates of all the lines composing that stream. By convention, the candidates are placed in a partition '/Event/Strip'. It is possible to configure StrippingConf to run only one stream. It is also possible to use a sub-set of lines for each particular stream. This is achieved through the ActiveStreams and ActiveLines fields of StrippingConf respectively.
from Configurables import SelDSTWriter, StrippingConf, DaVinci

sc = StrippingConf(ActiveStreams = ['Jpsi'], ActiveLines = ['JpsiInclusive'], OutputType = "DST")

dstWriter = SelDSTWriter("StripMC09DSTWriter",
                         SelectionSequences = sc.activeStreams(),
                         OutputPrefix = 'Strip',
                         OutputFileSuffix = 'Test'
dv = DaVinci()
dv.DataType = "MC09"                   # Default is "MC09"
dv.UserAlgorithms = [ dstWriter.sequence() ]

This example will only run the 'JpsiInclusive' line of the 'Jpsi' stream. The result will be Test.Jpsi.dst. For more details, see the relevant Stripping Framework section


Since the stripping DST contains a full DST as well as the candidate's full decay tree, it is very easy to run an analysis on top of it. All that is required is that the full TES location of the particles is specified t the relevant algorithms. In the example below, we run J/Psi filter on top of the candidates saved to a DST written using only the 'JpsiInclusive' line of the the 'Jpsi' stream.
# Get the J/Psi candidates from the DST.
# Treat particles already on the DST as data-on-demand, but give the full path.
JpsiSel = DataOnDemand(name = 'DOD_Bs',
                       Location = "/Event/Strip/Phys/StrippingJpsiInclusiveCombine")
# Filter the J/Psi. Replace 'ALL' by some cuts.
from Configurables import FilterDesktop
_jpsiFilter = FilterDesktop('jpsiFilter', Code = 'ALL')

# make a Selection
JpsiFilterSel = Selection(name = 'JpsiFilterSel',
                          Algorithm = _jpsiFilter,
                          RequiredSelections = [JpsiSel] )

# build the SelectionSequence
JpsiSeq = SelectionSequence('SeqJpsi',
                            TopSelection = JpsiFilterSel)

# Configure DaVinci
dv.HistogramFile = "DVHistos_Strip.root"
dv.UserAlgorithms = [JpsiSeq.sequence()] # pass the GaudiSequencer to DaVinci()
dv.Input   = ["DATAFILE='PFN:/castor/
_v24r3p1/Sel.Jpsi.dst'  TYP='POOL_ROOTTREE' OPT='READ'" ]
We can add some histograms, as shown in DaVinci Tutorial 4:
from Configurables import LoKi__Hybrid__PlotTool as PlotTool

_jpsiFilter.HistoProduce = True
_jpsiFilter.addTool( PlotTool("InputPlots") )
_jpsiFilter.InputPlots.Histos = { "P/1000"  : ('momentum',0,150) ,
                                  "PT/1000" : ('pt_%1%',0,5,750) ,
                                  "M"       : ('mass in MeV_%1%_%2%_%3%',2.8*Uni
ts.GeV,3.2*Units.GeV) }
_jpsiFilter.addTool( PlotTool("OutputPlots") )
_jpsiFilter.OutputPlots.Histos = { "P/1000"  : ('momentum',0,150) ,
                                   "PT/1000" : ('pt_%1%',0,5,750) ,
                                   "M"       : ('mass in MeV_%1%_%2%_%3%',2.8*Un
its.GeV,3.2*Units.GeV) }

The selection part of the example could've been put in a python module to make a selection, as explained in the Particle Selection framework and DaVinci Tutorial 4 pages. This example will be available as DaVinci/options/ from DaVinci v24r4 onwards.
