USC Computing Setup for ATLAS (tcsh/csh)

Basic Athena Setup

To set up athena framework, script is available in ~wpark/cmthome/ and copy the following files in your area ${HOME}/cmthome:
SourceMe.15.6.9  # setenv REL 15.6.9 can be changed for your desired release
requirements_stable  #line with macro ATLAS_TEST_AREA ${HOME}/atlas/${REL} can be edited for your taste
source SourceMe.15.6.9

DQ2 Client Setup

To set up grid for DQ2 clients,
cp ~wpark/cmthome/grid_env ${HOME}/cmthome
source grid_env
For sure, you need grid certificate before.

Most useful commands are (-L ROAMING should be added to reach beyond USC)

dq2-ls -L ROAMING 'mc09_7TeV.106400.SU4_jimmy_susy.recon.AOD.*'
dq2-ls -L ROAMING 'mc09_7TeV.10*.SU*_jimmy_susy.recon.AOD.*'
dq2-ls -r -L ROAMING 'mc09_7TeV.10*.SU*_jimmy_susy.recon.AOD.*'
dq2-get -L ROAMING user10.WoochunPark.USCSusyAnalysis020

Panda Setup

Links are available for PandaTools, PandaRun and PandaAthena

SVN Setup

To check out package from SVN, you need to set up the following things in your account (CERN account required):

setenv SVNOFF svn+ssh://
setenv SVNGRP svn+ssh://
setenv SVNUSR svn+ssh://
setenv SVNROOT svn+ssh://

[susy:~] more ~/.ssh/config
  User woochun
  GSSAPIAuthentication yes
  GSSAPIDelegateCredentials yes
  Protocol 2
  ForwardX11 no

After basic set up, you need to do the following and compile:

cd $TestArea
cmt co $SVNGRP/Institutes/USC/USCSusyAnalysis
cmt co -r USCSusyAnalysis-00-XX-XX $SVNGRP/Institutes/USC/USCSusyAnalysis
cmt co $SVNGRP/Institutes/USC/CharmAnalysis

USCSusyAnalysis is a physics analysis package which uses AthenaROOTAccess (ARA) to read ESD/AOD input in the form of a transient ROOT tree and performs a basic SUSY event candidate selection. The offline objects are selected using different selectors. The selector classes access an object (EventData) which holds the required event information to reconstruct SUSY event inclusively. The transient tree itself is packaged in the ARATree object. The selector classes are unaware of how the branches of the transient tree are accessed. They are independent of this step. The interface between the ARATree (data) and their accessors (selectors) is the EventData class.

Intended Users

This package is intended for users starting out on SUSY physics analysis using ARA, although it should be relatively easy to tailor this package to suit any other analysis. The users are required to write their own steering class which is able to access all the information from the transient tree. Once this is done the user has a choice of using/modifying the selector classes already provided or writing their own object selection routines.

Analysis Steering

Steering the analysis involves the following steps:
  • Access all the required branches from ARATree
  • Store this information in EventData
  • Loop over all events and perform the selection
  • Save the resulting subset of events, histograms etc.

An analysis base-class (myAnalysis) is created which has methods to perform these steps. It has pure virtual methods and all the analysis steering classes (one of them is TopAnalysis) inherit from this base-class and implement these steps. The analysis base class is made a friend of ARATree, to enable the steering classes to implement the above steps.
