2008.02.27 Tower based clustering algorithm, and EEMC/BEMC candidates

Ilya Selyuzhenkov February 27, 2008

Gamma-jet candidates before applying clustering algorithm

Gamma-jet isolation cuts:

1. selecting di-jet 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

2. selecting di-jet events with jets pointing opposite in azimuth:

cos(phi1 - phi2) < -0.8

3. requiring no charge tracks associated with a first jet (jet with a maximum EM fraction):

nCharge1 = 0

• for each gamma-jet 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.
