Physics Objects Definitions

This analysis uses reconstructed jets, electrons, muons as well as missing transverse energy. In Sect.  7.9 general information on the reconstruction of these objects in ATLAS is given. This section is intended to provide more analysis specific information on the definition of the various objects and which requirements they have to meet in order to be considered in the analysis. This is done for jets in Sect. 12.1, for electrons and muons in Sects. 12.2 and 12.3, respectively, and for the missing transverse energy in Sect. 12.4.
