Trigger configuration

emulate L2E-gamma trigger for Run 2006 [eemc-http-mb-l2gamma:: id 137641]
Trigger conditions:
cluster Et (2x2) = 5.2GeV
seed Et = 3.7GeV

Accept/Reject relative to the total number of offline selected events

Definition: offline selected events are events which satisfy to the following conditions:

  • Online condition (L2E-gamma trigger fired)
  • Reconstructed vetrex (|v_z|<120cm)
  • Offline condition (at least one gammaMaker candidate found)
