Upgraded Level-1 τ trigger performance in 2018 data

---++!! Abstract

This document describes the performance of the CMS Level-1 calorimeter trigger for τ leptons using 11.1 fb<sup>-1</sup> of 2018.

Details of the Level-1 trigger algorithms can be found in <a href="https://cds.cern.ch/record/2018400/?ln=es" target="_blank">CMS-DP-2015-009</a>.

The previous Level-1 τ performance report can be found in <a href="https://cds.cern.ch/record/2305547?ln=es" target="_blank">CMS-DP-2018-006</a>.

---+++ Efficiency of Level-1 τ seeds

* The Level-1 trigger efficiency is evaluated for hadronically-decaying τís used to seed the di-τ High Level Trigger.
* The efficiency is computed per single-τ-leg through the tag-and-probe method, as a function of the offline-reconstructed τ transverse momentum.
* Hadronically-decaying τís from the Z→τ<sub>μ</sub> τ<sub>h</sub> process are selected in events that fired single μ High Level Trigger and fulfill the baseline H→ττ requirements of well identified and isolated μτ<sub>h</sub> pairs, as well as m(E<sub>T</sub><sup>miss</sup>,μ) < 30 GeV and 40 GeV < m<sub>vis</sub>(τ,μ) < 80 GeV.
* An η restriction of |η| < 2.1 is applied to the τ<sub>h</sub> Level-1 objects.
* Passing Level-1 τís probes must geometrically match selected offline τís.
* The results are based on 40.9 fb<sup>-1</sup> of 2017 data.
* In the following, p<sub>T</sub><sup>τ,offline</sup> refers to the transverse momentum of the offline τ candidate.
