Analysis at Particle Level

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The chapter is organised as follows. First, the disagreement in the b-tagged fraction observed in the previous chapter is investigated; a correction to the simulation is applied to fix the disagreement. Then, the b-jet and n-jet cross sections are simultaneously extracted together with advanced techniques of unfolding; the treatment of the systematic uncertainties in the unfolding is also discussed.
