Muon HLT Efficiency Measurement with the "Reference-Trigger" Method

Goal

Very useful to measure the efficiency of complex trigger paths, such as double-muon and dimuon triggers, combination of triggers, cross-triggers, etc. The description and examples below refer to the specific cases of (combinations of) double-muon trigger paths HLT_Mu17_Mu8, HLT_Mu17_TkMu8, HLT_Mu22_TkMu8.

Ingredients

Choice of the binning

The measurement can be done in one single bin on in several bin depending of the use. The bins are just to be large enough to not lack of statistic for the efficiency computation.

Choice of the reference trigger

The measurement is based on the computation of the complex trigger paths efficiency for event passing a reference trigger. The reference trigger should be chosen to have a high efficiency on the events passing the complex trigger to not bias the result. For example, HLT_Mu17 is the best candidate for double muon triggers like HLT_Mu17_Mu8, HLT_Mu17_TkMu8, HLT_Mu22_TkMu8.

Reference trigger efficiency

The reference trigger efficiency on muon can be measured using the standard Tag and Probe method as documented here. The reference trigger efficiency on di-muon event can be computed from the reference trigger efficiency on muon as follow : if is the efficiency of the ref trigger on muon, then the efficiency on di-muon, , will be computed using this formula :

Complex efficiency after reference trigger

This is the efficiency of the complex trigger path on di-muon events triggered by the ref trigger. This efficiency can be obtained by fitting the Z peak as in usual Tag and Probe.

Complex trigger efficiency

The final number is obtain bin by bin by multiplying the efficiency of the reference trigger by the efficiency of the complex trigger after reference trigger.

Recipe

Recipe for HLT_Mu17_Mu8 and HLT_Mu17_TkMu8 paths

Reference trigger efficiency
The chosen reference trigger chosen is HLT_Mu17. As it is prescaled, it is needed to request the tag muon to be match with HLT_Mu17 in order measure an efficiency without prescale. The efficiencies of the reference trigger for event passing the POG loose working point (Global OR Tracker muon AND PF muon).
