  17. THE LEVEL1-TRIGGER Selection based on high-pT objects from calo and muon. Candidates forelectrons/photons,taus/hadrons,jetsabove pT thres-holds. Muoncandidatesabove pTthresholds Energy sumsabove thresholds Multiplicities Regions-of-Interest Interface to highertrigger levels/DAQ:objects with pT,, Event decisionfor L1 Interface tofront-end TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  18. THE CALORIMETER TRIGGER I Complex system with many modules to be developed. analog sums of EM/HA cells 7200 trigger towers(granularity 0.1•0.1) digitisation,presumming to jetelements with0.2•0.2 granularity cluster processor:Find e/ and /hadroncandidates in 6400trigger towers(||<2.5) • jet/energy processor:- Find jet candidates in 30•32 jet elements for ||<3.2 • Build total ET sum up to ||<4.9. TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  19. THE CALORIMETER TRIGGER II Builds candidate objects (RoIs): electrons/photons, taus/hadrons, jets.Ideas about core definitions, isolation criteria not really finalised. Example: The /hadron trigger Example: The jet/energy trigger • 2·2 jet EM+HA cluster (RoI) in 2·2 or 3·3 or 4·4 region (gives ET). • 8 (4) (forward) jet ET thresholds. • Total/missing ET from jets (sum of 0.2·0.2 jet elements to·=0.4·0.2, conversion to Ex,Ey, then summation). • Maximum of EM+HA ET in 2·2 ‘RoI’, isolation criteria (alternative core definitions?). • Multiplicities for 8(8) e/ (/ hadron) ET thresholds. TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  20. THE MUON TRIGGER pT information from hit coincidences in successive detector layers. precision chambers Trigger chambers: • 3 RPC stations for ||<1.05• 3 TGC stations for 1.05<||<2.4. • 2 , layers per station (TGC 2/3) trigger chambers Procedure:• Put predefined ‘roads’ through all stations (width in  ~ pT). • If hit coincidences in 2(3) stations  muon candidate for pT thres- hold corresponding to ‘road’. • ‘Roads’ can be defined for 6 different pT thresholds (for which multiplicity counts are delivered to the CTP).• BCID=1.5 ns.

TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  24. L1 SIMULATION: OVERVIEW Most developments originally for stand-alone applications.  Generation of MonteCarlo events for analysis purposes Rate/efficiency estimates Inputs for HLT tests Tests of L1 trigger hardware (~done for some compo- nents; just starting ‘slices’, configuration problem!) TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  25. Organisation  Coordination: TSS Calorimeter trigger: London Muon trigger + MuCTPI: Tokyo, Rom, CERN CTP, RoIB, interfaces, configuration: TSS  C++ Code LHCb framework Gaudi adapted to ATLAS-needs  Athena (ATLAS Offline environment) Framework Specific concept for run/event-wise data persistency:  StoreGate and DetectorStore for package communication: Objects are sent to predefined memory locations with ‘keys’. Storageconcept Status  Complete simulation chain for calo trigger ready. Currently working on muon trigger integration. Also done: configuration code (sets up L1 trigger simulation software and hardware !) Successfully used for simulation of L1 result as input to HLT tests (important for HLT TDR). L1 SIMULATION: ORGANISATION Many contributors around the world. TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  26. L1 CONFIGURATION Based on XML: • Simple definition of logical structures (better HTML).• Simple ‘parsing’ into instances of C++ classes. Definition ofobjects to be triggered: Trigger Menu <TriggerMenu> <TriggerItem> <AND> <TriggerCondition threshold=“MU6” multiplicity=“2” /> <TriggerCondition threshold=“JT90” multiplicity=“1” /> </AND> </TriggerItem></TriggerMenu> Structure of L1 decision configures CTP. Def. of objectsfor which calo andmuon deliver multi-plicity counts:thresholds <TriggerThreshold name=“MU6” value=“6” bitstart=“3” bitlength=“3” etamin=“-5” …. /> <TriggerThreshold name=“JT90” value=“90” bitstart=“6” bitlength=“3” etamin=“-5” …. /> Calo and muon need to know which multiplicity is to be delivered on which physical line. Description of hardware Prevent from configuring logical structure that exceeds CTP’s abilities (number of inputs etc.). TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  35. OVERVIEW ¶ INTRODUCTION ¶ THE LEVEL1 TRIGGER (L1) ¶ THE HIGH-LEVEL TRIGGER (HLT) ¶ TRIGGER PERFOMANCE STUDIES• Selection Planning • L1 Performance • L2 / HLT / Combined Performance TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  36. TRÍGGER STUDIES Only rigidly done for L1+L2. EF should be ~100% efficient.Most studies from 1998 Trigger Performance Status Report. Mostly done using full GEANT simulation of ATLAS detector and of trigger logic. Usually not full events used, but only parts (QCD jets, H processes etc.) Full dijet event ~1000s. For jets and ETmiss studies only with fast parametrised simulation. Fast L1 trigger simulation for some purposes (large samples etc.). Most studies have large uncertainties: LO MCs, computing time per event, costs, classification. Should be reduced with new L1 simulation + HLT software for HLT technical design report (5/2003). TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  37. LEVEL1 SELECTION: PLANNING Rates in kHz; thresholds define 95% efficiencies. Muon triggerscontribute to(di)lepton signatures. Electron/photontriggers strong;large backgrounds. Low rate for jettriggers; difficult to control backgrounds New studies assume much reduced  rate (~kHz). No safety factors included (LO MonteCarlos etc.). TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  38. HLT SELECTION: PLANNING Optimization of efficiency/rejection and CPU load / data volume. Rate·Event size (1.6MB)  needed band widths / storage volumeRate·CPU time  number of processors (500?) TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  39. threshold ~30 GeV L1 e/ TRIGGER Tolerable rate dictates ET thresholds. Isolation criteria vital for rate control.

Performance depends on- window for ET determination,- jet element thresholds, - declustering procedure. TSS: Triggering in ATLAS

  42. L1 MUON TRIGGER PERFORMANCE Mainly want to trigger W/Z. Semilept.b,c is background (L2). TGC efficiency for different thresholdssharp rise, good . Fake rates from backgroundparticles about 10Hz/cm2? Newmuon studies assume less rate. Muon trigger rates overview [kHz] TSS: Triggering in ATLAS
