**Luminosity and V0 trigger cross section estimations from vdM**scan results(Update 3) K. Oyama, G. De Cataldo, A. Di Mauro, C.Garabatos, and F. Antinori ALICE Trigger Meeting 9, July, 2010**Overview**So far done • Pile-up correction … done (not changed since last update) • Using new BCT data for bunch intensity … done (not changed) • Secondary Gaussian inclusion to obtain the luminosity … done(but result is changed slightly due to the last point of this page) New this time • Last attempt: direct integration of the shape • Average top rate with zero separation ALICE Trigger Meeting**Numerical Sum**normalized shape bunch intensity • Assumption (factorized in x and y) • For x-scan with separation b • The sharpness factor P & QFor Gaussian approx, P=1/(2x) • Sum of rate over b • The top (no displacement) rate • Divide B by A, then obtain the sharpness, luminosity and cross section • To apply for discrete values (in our vdM scan, separation step is constant = 22.42 [m]) A B ALICE Trigger Meeting**Numerical Sum (Result)**• Integral • Sx = 152.17 0.67(stat.) [Hz mm] • Sy = 162.20 0.69(stat.) [Hz mm] • Separation-zero values (top rate) with pile-up corrections (took max. values) • Rx(0,0) = 986.72 10.93(stat.) [Hz] • Ry(0,0) = 975.08 10.87(stat.) [Hz] note: Rx and Ry are different • Sharpness • P = 6.484 0.077(stat.) [/mm] corresponds to Gauss x = 43.50 [m] • Q = 6.011 0.072(stat.)
