CMS Fast Simulation

  • Recipe. Note: if you get errors with the "cvs" command, see my comments about cvs in this page.

  • We will use the script. You can get more information about the options using the help option: --help Configuration/GenProduction/python/EightTeV/ --step GEN,SIM --beamspot Realistic8TeVCollision --conditions START52_V9::All --pileup NoPileUp --datamix NODATAMIXER --eventcontent RAWSIM --datatier GEN-SIM --filein=file:lhe/tttt_unweighted_events.lhe -n 20 * Run GEN and FASTSIM (detector simulation): Configuration/GenProduction/python/EightTeV/ --filein=file:lhe/tttt_unweighted_events.lhe
-s GEN,FASTSIM,HLT:5E33v4 --conditions=auto:startup_5E33v4 --beamspot Realistic8TeVCollision --pileup 2012_Startup_inTimeOnly --datatier AODSIM --eventcontent AODSIM -n 20

---++ Analyzing the output ROOT file from FastSim * Below is a template python script to loop over events and produce a simple histogram:
cvs co UserCode/Yumiceva/Scripts
cd UserCode/Yumiceva/Scripts
python -i 
* The generator particle data is stored in the root file as a collection of GenParticles. This object is part of the HEP MC Event record. More information about the member functions are [[][here]], and below is snapshot of these functions. Screen_Shot_2013-03-17_at_10.25.16_PM.png
