Average Pt vs Number of Charged Particles

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS A DRAFT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Plan to measure the average Pt vs Number of Charged Particles, in the beginning using mainly ID. Possible measurement with low statistics (with in first year data taking)


Understand the Pt distributions that is very depending on QCD and moreover on the tunning of the MonteCarlo generator (color reconections....)


At this point I am following the CSC note on minimum bias studies without Trigger Effects at the moment. What we need is:

  • Select primarty tracks on reconstructed data
  • Low pt (150MeV). Other experiments doing with Pt>500MeV.
  • Compare them with the primary tracks on MC truth:
    • At generator level: several vertex, How to define primary vertex when there is gluons and all the qcd interactions defined there????
    • At TrackTruth, how to define primary tracks??? What to do with primary tracks that we can not measure because they decay inside first blayer???
  • Look for corrections to apply on tracking and vertex efficiency to correct the reconstructed track to fit with the TrackTruth. Same way as MB CSC note.


At this point quite confused. I am developing the Code, then I will look for the dataset


Study it later

Low Pt

Primary tracks selection:

Doing same cuts as CSC not. Study efficiency and compare. Look for other ways. Just normal cuts?? Something more elaborated: Likelihood, Neural Nets??? Maybe to complex for this analysis!!

Preliminary plots for discussion

EVERYTHING IS DRAFT, not real results!!!!

Show the plots I have now:
