Data and mc samples

Data and MC samples

Data:

  • Compact 7.2 & Database (database-2005-02-11) pass 5 Min bias 2003 (runs 15745,15746 and 15747)

    • Bad burst

      • Check: DCH,MBX,HODC,LKR,MUV,PMB and MNP33Current ne 0)

      • Reject 31 bursts for which momentum = 10.0 GeV

      • Total number of bursts after bad burst rejection: 2244

    • Alphas and betas

    • Projectivity and Blue Field (Alan algorithm to remove phi dependence)

      MC Sample:

    • Ginsberg correction

    • Constants from PDG 2002 for ke3 (λ+ = 0.02760)

    • Pi0 decays according to its branching ratio

    • CMC005 corrections including corrections of May 9th 2005

    • Result based on sample size of 8 M pipi0 and 8 M ke3

    • Pipi0 mc has 0.13% pipi0g (IB) included in it at generation level


Common selection for ke3 and pipi0

Track Section (no extra tracks allowed):

1 track after excluding Ghost-tracks

Hodoscope time window (-17. 20. ns)

Track quality > 0.8 CDA < 2.5 , Beta, alpha corrections from database

x,y vertex (-1.8,1.8) cm , z charge vertex (-500,8000) cm

Blue Field correction applied

Pi0 Selection (extra gammas allowed for both)

Energy of gamma (3, 65) GeV

Separation between gammas > 10 cm

Time difference between gammas (-5., 5.) ns

Energy scale

Projectivity correction

Calculate neutral vertex for each pair of gammas, and choose gammas based on best difference between charge and neutral vertex

Use this neutral vertex in the blue field routine to correct the slopes of the track (reason: phi dependence studies of Alan)
