LHCb event characteristics

ν (nu) : The average number of pp interactions per bunch crossing

  • Only used in MC

  • $ \nu = \frac{L \times \sigma_{tot}}{N_{\rm bunches} \times f_{\rm Crossing}} =  \rm \frac{0.4\,nb^{-1}}{1262\,s} \times 91.1\,mb^{-1} \times \frac{1}{11\,245\,Hz} = 2.57 $

μ (mu): The average number of visible pp interactions per bunch crossing

  • The only thing we can measure at LHCb

  • We measure $ P(n=0|\mu)=exp(-\mu) $, assuming L0 selects ALL visible interactions, i.e. $ n\neq0 $

  • $ \mu = 0.699 \cdot \nu = 1.79 $ (at 7 TeV, a bit less at 8 TeV)

Pile-up: the average number of pp interactions in visible events

  • The relevant quantity for the Hlt processing time

  • Pile-up $ = \mu/(1-P(0|\mu)) = \mu / 1-exp(-\mu) = 2.15 \ @\ \mu = 1.79 $

  • The average pile-up is not what we see in the Hlt if we have a biasing L0

Magnetic field and track definition

tracksmagnet.png

Detector VELO TT T1-3 Ca. 72 tracks in bbar events
Long Track X (X) X 26 (36%)
Upstream Track X X - 11 (15%)
Down Track - X X 4 (6%)
VELO Track X - - 26 (36%)
T Track - - X 5 (7%)

  • Successfully reconstructed : a track must have at least 70% of its associated hits originating from a single MonteCarlo particle

  • Ghost tracks : reconstructed tracks that are not matched to a true MonteCarlo particle

  • Cloned tracks : several reconstructed tracks that origin from the same particle

  • Track Types:
    -- 0 = Unknown
    -- 1 = Velo track
    -- 2 = 2D Velo track
    -- 3 = Long (or forward) track
    -- 4 = Upstream track
    -- 5 = Downstream track
    -- 6 = seed track
    -- 7 = muon track
    -- 8 = calorimeter cosmic track
    -- 9 = TT track
