  • ZZ MC status
  • Nearly ready, test tar balls running
  • Will request both Run 2 and Run3 MC

t would be good to have a gridpack job successfully complete before officially requesting the samples.   It sounds like we may be close or  maybe since last week it completed.   Please update me on the status.   However, I think we can at least begin discussion with the contacts.  The contacts are listed at https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/viewauth/CMS/TWikiSMP#SMP_contacts

 I think we want to request both Run 2 and Run 3 samples.   

   Right now the working ZZ analysis we have is based the code that He is using that was inherited from previous published ZZ analysis.   We want to add the polarization variables and design a polarization fit based on an analysis framework that we know works and that means having something that works on Run 2 data.  Further itís unclear how fast Run 3 data will be available in the usable format so I think it makes sense to work on Run 2 data.   If Run 3 data becomes available the optimal thing would be to add it to the Run 2 data rather than do a completely separate analysis.

  If we could get a decent MC sample quickly enough it may be possible to include a cos(theta *) distribution and a polarization fit into the analysis He is working on.   However, that might not be the best match with the physics content of the paper he is working on.   Physics wise, an analysis that concentrated on Polarization, both SM and new physics applications, would make more sense.

 Just this week the SMP group asked for people to make MC requests.   See the news talk at https://indico.cern.ch/event/1007569/
So we should email the SMP MC contacts and get started on making a request immediately.   I would just email them, state where we are producing the grid pack, and ask them what they need.    At the same time we can ask a second question about the schedule for Run 3 MC.

  • Prelim restructuring
Yesterday Kevin, Sridhara and I discussed that in the new prelim talk format the students are no longer tested as extensively, or at all, on their knowledge of the the CMS detector and the SM.  Based on our discussion here is a proposal for what to do to ensure our students receive adequate training on these subjects.

Each student approaching their prelim will give a talk to the group discussing the SM, placing their analysis in the context of the SM, and discussing the LHC and the CMS detector, including discussion of any detector work they have done and similarly explaining how their analysis uses the detector.   The whole group, but specifically newer students, will be invited to attend.   If necessary the talk can be followed by a closed session for the Profs to ask additional questions.

In preparation for these series of talks various group members will do the following.

1) The last few students to give prelim presentation with a long form SM and detector sections will make their slides available.

2) Those slides will be used to make a template for the talk.  Future students will be encouraged to update and improve the template.

3) Matt will assemble the list of questions he drew up his students and Usama to form a study guide on the SM and CMS.

4) The Prof. team are encouraged to update and improve the study guide.

After this work is sufficiently complete Ho Fung will give the first talk.

* MBI CMS analysis

  • List of CMS analysis

Here is a list of CMS analysis.  I think there has been more.   Some themes of interest at CMS are

1) A few analysis with polarization.  This includes one analysis that uses polarization to enhance the sensitivity to aC in an EFT interpretation.
2) A nearly complete set of EWK production analysis.   Only os WW is missing and might be filled in by that time
3) A fair number of complete Run 2 analysis often including more differential distribution and/or higher order MC comparisons
4) Some interesting oddball analysis like dibosons at 5 TeV and DPS WW.

Iím not sure what you would extract from this in terms of which collaborations might want which talks.   It might be better to start from the perspective of identifying speakers.

Maybe we can neglect VBS V production, Higgs and only have one new physics talk in order to make room for some of the more interesting specific topics that have been covered.

- cheers - matt

  • ZZ analysis plan to SMP-VV
We are using the ZZ -> 4l sample to perform a study vector boson polarization ZZ production.  There are several things we are intending to do

1) Individual vector boson polarization as a function of m_4l.   Itís expected to change quite significantly from the ZZ threshold to higher energy.  Though we havenít considered this carefully probably we would also look into studying some polarization variable that probes correlation of polarization between the two bosons.
We are using the magraph functionality to generate specific polarization states in a given reference frame and have already generated a gridpack and requested MC sample.
2) EFT constraints using SMEFT and a full set of variables relevant to ZZ.   The SMEFT package has a sub model with some minimal constraints relevant to vector boson production.   ATLAS already has a paper on this.  However, our analysis would add:
 - Using polarization variables to specifically study the CP Even vs CP Odd operators
 - Using the NLO implementation that is available for SMEFT

From Dick Loveless

 These systems are quite complicated and simply quoting a number would not be adequate. Both the gas and water cooling typically had 3 chambers per output on the manifold.  The copper water pipes are mounted in the disks, and flexible hoses make the connections to the manifold and to the chambers.  The dimensions of the copper piping are available from PSL drawings. I expect it would take some time to gather all the information.  The hose lengths were never documented; they were simply cut to size during the installation.

  Here's is a rough estimate of the CSC cooling copper piping for YE1 ( from memory with no drawings):

  ME1/1  estimate length of 2 m x supply and return x 18 circuits = 72m

               connections 1m per circuit x supply and return x 18 circuits = 36m
                  (this was a Dubna design and may be completely different.)

  ME1/2  estimate length of 1.5m x supply and return x 9 circuits = 27m

               connections 1.5m x supply and return x 9 circuits = 27m

  ME1/3  probably no copper piping, just hoses

               connections 1.5m x supply and return x 9 circuits = 27m

   The total is 189m per disk.  Given the very rough estimate I would say we have 400m of copper tubing on YE1s.  This does NOT include any RPC cooling.

  The gas piping was done under contract with a vendor and I have no idea how much was used.  But if I had to guess I would estimate about 300m per disk since flexible hoses were not used.

  By the way, although copper is expensive my guess is that the flexible hose is roughly twice the cost of the copper (if you are trying to estimate the cost of replacement).

  My personal view is that this estimate is sufficient for the TC exercise.  It is not adequate for a DOE cost estimate  

  • CSC Eff MC results
 In anticipation of making a presentation on local efficiencies in Run 3 MC I ran again to increase my statistics by as much as possible (~10X) and made a more complete survey of the plots.   With more statistics I can see some trends with pT and I find a surprising effect in the LCT efficiencies vs eta.  I had not looked at LCT Efficiencies before.   I still see no strong PV effects in segments which is interesting for the reasons you discussed.  I see a slight effect in LCTs, oddly enough most obvious in the outer stations.

 Please take a loot and send any comments you might have.

 Keep in mind there are always two possible sources of inefficiency.   A real inefficiency or something related to the way I mage segments and LCTs.

Tim suggested putting Sven in the loop

In preparation for run 3 I have been running jobs on Cosmic data and also DY MC produced with the Run 3 software.   Mainly this was a technical test to make sure all my efficiency software works in the new data.  However, I decided to process a large Run 3 DY MC since I thought it might make an interesting baseline for comparison efficiencies measured in data.   I found some interesting effects in the LCT efficiency in the Run 3 DY MC.  See plots below.

 I was looking at 
/DYToLL_M-50_TuneCP5_14TeV-pythia8/Run3Winter21DRMiniAOD-FlatPU30to80FEVT_112X_mcRun3_2021_realistic_v16-v2/GEN-SIM-DIGI-RAW

from DAS
https://cmsweb.cern.ch/das/request?instance=prod/global&input=dataset+file%3D%2Fstore%2Fmc%2FRun3Winter21DRMiniAOD%2FDYToLL_M-50_TuneCP5_14TeV-pythia8%2FGEN-SIM-DIGI-RAW%2FFlatPU30to80FEVT_112X_mcRun3_2021_realistic_v16-v2%2F120000%2F01c299bc-92a0-44f7-8170-caf7fa7955bf.root

or from MCM
https://cms-pdmv.cern.ch/mcm/requests?prepid=TSG-Run3Winter21GS-00003&page=0&shown=127

Which was produced in CMSSW_11_2_1

I processed it through reconstruction using CMSSW_11_3_0

The most interesting effect in the LCT efficiencies is seen in efficiency vs eta plots.   I also include one comparison to a segment efficiency plot to show that itís flat.   I have not made similar plots for Run 2 MC so I donít have that point of comparison.    If you look back at some of my presentations on run 2 data we donít see similar effects in the data.  In data the efficiency effects are mainly correlated to PVs and concentrated in the inner rings.

  • ZZ rivet
  • Will involve Susmita
We need to write a Rivet routine for published ZZ analysis SMP-19-001.    It should be possible to adapt your Rivet routine that you used for polarization studies, Keeganís original, or one of the previous ZZ Rivet routines for this purpose.

 Could you please work on this.

 Iím not sure whether you were running Rivet within the CMS Rivet framework.   If not you would need to adapt to run in that environment.   See: https://gitlab.cern.ch/cms-gen/Rivet    For validation the Rivet routine is compared to our results from data.  Those numbers, in the proper format, can be generated automatically from the HEPData entry.   I think He has completed the HEPData entry and he can point you to it.

 You may have to update the selection in the Rivet routine, in which case you need to follow the selection of the fiducial cross section in the paper.  https://arxiv.org/abs/2009.01186

  • Information on Russian contributions and issues
1) Only the ME1/1 part of the HV system is complete.   114 kCHF of in-kind contributions fo the rest fo the HV system have yet to be delivered, but are not currently necessary.

2) Dubna JINR has contributed 76 kCHF to the upgrade of the low voltage system.  New LVDB boards

3) Tomsk only partially delivered the funds for the VTTXs and adaptor boards and the rest had to be paid for using a loan.  I think the US eventually paid off the loan.

I havenít actually added the future contributions from Tomsk in our tracking.  Do we have a corporative agreement and are these really firm now?   If they are not confirmed by some sort of agreement do we really want to mention them?

4) There are other non CORE contribution to the upgrade that could be mentioned.
Most have been delivered excepting the corresponding spares for the upgrade of the ME2,3,4 HV system.



   Looking back at the original cooperative agreement letters.

Core contribution to the upgrade:

1) "The Russian federation (lead institution PNPI) will contribute to the procurement of the High Voltage system, satisfying the mutually agreed specification, for a total amount of 209 kCHF"

in a later document this was divided into
88 kCHF for 432 channel High Voltage System for ME 1/1/ station
121 kCHF for muon Master boards supplying power to the 6,480 HV channels in the ME2, ME3 and ME4 stations.

Current status: 95k delivered, ME1/1 HV system complete.   Remainder of system does not need to be installed before the HL-LHC period and nothing has been delivered yet.   


2) "JINR (Dubna) will contribute to the procurement of Low voltage system for the new on detector electronics for the total amount of 76 kCHFĒ.  These are new LVDB boards

Current status: Complete

3) "Upgrade of the DCFEB electronics VTTx functionalityĒ
Lead institution Tomsk SU 50 kCHF

Later Tomosk proposed (but as far as I know there is no corporative agreement letter)
90 kCHF divided into 60 kCHF for the VTTxís themselves, and about 30 kCHF for the adapter boards
10 kCHF Additional transceivers to be installed on ME21 OTMBs
10 kCHF Splitter assemblies to allow routing of fibers from ME21 DCFEBs and GE21 OHs to CSC OTMB optical inputs
107 kCHF 36 new type of ODMB boards

What was entered in the spreadsheet was the following (again there is no no corporative agreement letter)
90 kCHF DCFEB, this is the VTTx and adaptor boards

Status: Tomsk SU delivered the first ~half of the 90 kCHF but the rest had to be paid for via a loan from CERN.


Also the corporative agreement specified non core contribution that went into the M&OB budget

4) "Contribution to the maintenance of the power system, including the production of spare boards, for 86k CHF which will be accounted for in the M&OB budget of the Muon system (lead institution PNPI)Ē

Status: Only half of this was delivered.  The corresponding spares to the upgrades for the ME2,3,4 have not been delivered.

5) ďIn addition, RMDS JINR are contributing to the Muon System Upgrade by providing the following non-CORE items:
Assembly of 120 reference low voltage cables 18 kCHF
Participation in Test 16 kCHF
Miscellaneous components and materials 10 kCHF

Status: Complete and additional contributions to the cooling system made as well
