Concerning the High Mass Tail on the Pion Peak

At the PWG meeting a few weeks ago, people expressed concerns about the high-mass tail from the pion peak that, for higher PT bins, is underestimated by the pion peak simulation.

Comparison with Other Results

Below you will find comparisons of the Run 6 cross section with recent Phenix results and the STAR Run 5 final result.  The lower panel is the statistical error on the Run 6 points.

1) L2Result Offsets


Every algorithm has the opportunity to write out a small report into the L2Result array after each decision().
