requiring two unique pairs of opposite sign same flavor leptons which reconstruct Z boson

Asked by Prudhvi Nikhil Bhattiprolu on 2018-05-21

Hello,

I am trying to select two unique pairs of either (e+ e-) or (mu+ mu-) which reconstruct a Z boson each (within 20 GeV window on mass of Z). usually for at least one such pair, I do " select 71.2 < M(e+ e-) < 111.2 or 71.2 < M(mu+ mu-) < 111.2", but I do not know how to proceed for two such pairs. (I am using ma5 in reco mode)

It would be much appreciated if you can throw some light on this !

Thanks much!

Hi Prudhvi,

Would cuts on the leading and next-to-leading guys do the job, like for instance replacing your conditions by something like
select 71.2 < M(e[1] e[2]) < 11.2

Another option would be to use the expert mode.

Regards,

Benjamin

Hello Benjamin,

Thank you for your reply. I think I have to use expert mode for this.
