Reason for soft jets - Delphes

Asked by JamesB on 2018-01-30

Hello,

I am generating events via MadGraph with Pythia for hadronisation, where I specify a minimum PT(jet) = 200GeV in the event p p > h j, h > j j lepton neutrino.

Once I use Delphes and look at the Jet PTs there are a significant number of events in which the leading jet has PT less than 200GeV. What do you suppose is the reason for this? I think the leptons might be reconstructed as jets, but why would this also mean the hard 200GeV jets are not detected?

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
James

Hi,

You pt cut is implemented at the hard-scattering level. Parton showering, hadronization and reconstruction change everything.

Cheers,

Benjamin
