Centrally Produced Simulation samples for Upgrade studies

A set of reference samples are centrally produced for studies of the upgrade detectors. They comprise smallish samples for specific detectors, tracking and particleID evaluation and later on a few reference key physics channels.

Beam conditions

Upgrade simulations are made for collisions of 7+7 TeV protons, with 25 ns spaced bunches and 2808 filled bunches. The crossing angle is assumed to be horizontal (beam1/beam2) due to the LHCb magnet (field pointing down) and related MBXW compensator and MBXWS correctors. The sign on the angle is flipped in the case of field pointing up. An external vertical crossing angle of is assumed to ensure no parasitic collisions occurs in the Long Straight Section (LSS8).

Initially only one of the polarity of the magnet will be simulated, magnet down. Only for very special studies the other polarity will also be produced.

and are not yet known and are related to the virtual Luminosity needed at the start of fill and to the procedure that will be used for the luminosity leveling during the fills. Since may vary between 3 and 15 m, in order to simulate the most difficult conditions to reconstruct a is chosen since it will give a narrower primary vertex transverse distributions. A normalized emittance of is chosen as it may be possible to reach after LS2 and also makes for a smaller beam size.

The number of total/visible collisions per bunch crossing, will depend of the chosen constant Luminosity it will be decided to run the Upgrade detector. In order to cover both the initial and what is at the moment considered the ultimate luminosity a few central samples will be produced for both <\latex title="lumi">\nu = 3.25 and 6.5 corresponding to a Luminosity of and with 2808 colliding bunches () and a total cross section from Pythia of .

An explanation of and their relations is available at this page.

Detectors configurations

A few different detectors configuration are produced and can be found in the book-keeping via part of the name of the *Simulation Conditions*. A full explanation is given in the description of the simulation conditions itself.

The following possible options and their combinations are currently available of which the subset to be simulated is extracted:

  • Current Velo, Velo Pixels (VP), Velo Light Strips (VL)
  • RICH1 without Aerogel and with PMTs
  • Current TT, Upstream Tracker (UT)
  • Magnetic field as in current detector
  • Beam pipe as in current detector, or with lighter SF2 and SF3 supports
  • IT and OT as in current detector, Fiber Tracker covering whole T stations (FT)
  • RICH2 with PMTs
  • Calorimeters as in current detectors, or in Gauss it is also possible to switch off SPD and PRS
  • Muon System as in current detector
  • Upstream region (BLS+BCM, RB84) and Downstream region (RB86) as in current detector (not normally simulated)
  • Infrastructure as in current detector (not normally simulated)

Processing steps

Initially only sim files (i.e. the output of Gauss) will be produced. As soon as Boole will be ready also xdigi files can be made. Eventually once A first version of Brunel will be ready dst (or xdst) files for physics channels to be processed by the physics analysis will be produced.

An explanation of the various files types is available in [http://lhcb-release-area.web.cern.ch/LHCb-release-area/DOC/gauss/doc/FileTypes.php[][this page]]

List of samples to be or being produced.

The following samples will be produced to evaluate and compare the performance of different detector technologies.
