Fast Reconstruction for the High Level Trigger

  • Nils BraunEmail author
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The High Level trigger (HLT) plays a crucial role for the success of an experiment, as pointed out in Sect.  2.2. Its decision logic, which defines whether a collision event is accepted or discarded, defines which physical results can be extracted from the collected data and whether a certain analysis has enough statistics to be possible at all. A sub-optimal event selection at this stage looses them irretrievably.
