Data Correction and Unfolding

From Wiki Les Houches 09

Jump to: navigation, search

At what "truth" level should data and theory generally be compared?

What corrections are optimal for data to be used in MC tuning?

Treatment systematics errors on the data?

Issues include:

  • Jet calibration: what truth do we calibrate to? (see last Les Houches for accord on final states)
  • What is an electron? How to treat/correct for photon radiation.
  • Resonances: e.g. do we measure a Z or a lepton mass distribution?
  • Photon isolation at the truth level
  • Role of detector simulation (see Tools_and_Monte_Carlo_Session_2_(BSM)#Detector_simulation_.28with_Session_1.29 for related discussions)
