White Lines and Vertices

  • jgriffith91786 by jgriffith91786

    Hello I'm new to this but very interested in helping out. When examining these images I was wondering if the random single white lines were important or perhaps noise from the experiment. Also the vertices we are looking for would be away from the center of the of the inner circles correct? In the sliced image setting what would be considered the center?

    Hi @jgriffith91786 , welcome to the Higgs Hunters project!

    You can ignore single white lines as long as they don't form an OCV. It looks like there is one of those at about 10:00 on this image.

    As I understand it, the center in the slice view is also the center of the image. But in general, any vertices that originate from the center, except for the green muons, is removed. So pretty much any vertex you see, besides the muon one, should be an OCV.

    Thanks for asking!!

    The centre in the slice view is in the centre (vertically). Horizontally its where the two green muon tracks meet.

    Any tracks that originate from the centre , except for the green muons, are removed to make it easier to spot ocvs.
