ATLAS+CMS discussion of “Computers in the search for the Higgs Boson”for JCSS

26th November 2013

where have we got to
Where have we got to…???
  • As last time (October): not as far advanced as we hoped for… 
  • We have:
    • Outline, attached to indico page: fewer missing names than last time;
    • SVN repository: has been “exercised” a bit. Ian has updated (?) the (rather old) latex version used by SVN.
    • cms-atlas-jcss mailing list. (PLEASE SUBSCRIBE, if you haven’t done so!)
    • There’s now a twiki page (email 23rd November) for other material that may be interesting or useful:

ATLAS+CMS:JCSS 25 Oct 2013

introduction chapters 1 2
Introduction: Chapters 1 +2
  • There has been some discussion of what’s in Chapters 1+2, and in what order.
  • Very rough text and ideas are in the SVN repository (under ’overview’ – Ch2).
  • Chapter 1 will contain:
    • Introduction to particle physics and “Higgs” at a level suitable for the “numerate (eg computer scientist) lay-person”.
    • The fact that pp collisions have many possible outcomes, and some (eg Higgs production) are very rare. (Rate= sigma x Lumietc) Also the idea that the mass of a short-lived particle can be inferred from measurement of its decay products. (“E=mc2” etc)
    • Sufficient introduction and key parameters of LHC machine and the detectors to motivate:
    • Discussion of the LHC “computing challenge(s)”.

ATLAS+CMS:JCSS 26 Nov 2013

introduction chapters 1 21
Introduction: Chapters 1 +2
  • Chapter 2 will contain:
    • A brief description of the “flow” from either real LHC collisions or simulation through to “publication” and/or physics results.
    • Hence the following terminology and ideas get introduced in this chapter, but detailed descriptions will come in the later chapters:
      • Collision rate, pile-up, simulation (Monte Carlo), DAQ and trigger, data rates and volumes, on-line, off-line, reconstruction, calibration, alignment, distributed processing and analysis, physics analysis, internal checking of potential results.
