2008.02.27 Tower based clustering algorithm, and EEMC/BEMC candidates
Ilya Selyuzhenkov February 27, 2008
Gammajet candidates before applying clustering algorithm
Gammajet isolation cuts:
 selecting dijet events with the first jet dominated by EM energy,
and the second one with a large fraction of hadronic energy:R_EM1 >0.9 and R_EM2 < 0.9
 selecting dijet events with jets pointing opposite in azimuth:
cos(phi1  phi2) < 0.8
 requiring no charge tracks associated with a first jet (jet with a maximum EM fraction):
nCharge1 = 0
Tower based clustering algorithm

for each gammajet candidate finding a tower with a maximum energy
associated with a jet1 (jet with a maximum EM fraction). 
Calculating energy of the cluster by finding all adjacent towers and adding their energy together.
 Implementing a cut based on cluster energy fraction, R_cluster, where
R_cluster is defined as a ratio of the cluster energy
to the total energy in the calorimeter associated with a jet1.
Note, that with a cut Ncharge1 =0, energy in the calorimeter is equal to the jet energy.
Distribution of cluster energy vs number of towers fired in EEMC/BEMC

R_cluster>0.9 cut: EEMC vs BEMC gammajet candidates
EEMC candidates: nTowerFiredBEMC=0
BEMC candidates: nTowerFiredEEMC=0
