LHCb delphes card

Asked by Rui Zhang on 2018-05-28

I recently notice that the LHCb collaboration added the jet algorithm into their detector simulations (according to 1803.05188). But "delphes_card_LHCb.tcl" doesn't contain the jet algorithm.

I tried to brutally copy the CMS jet algorithm in "delphes_card_CMS.tcl"(the same as "delphes_card_CMS.dat"), but it didn't work(Using TBrowser, I see there's nothing in the .root file).

I have tried to modify the function name in "set ExecutionPath" and "module TreeWriter TreeWriter". Because I guess the function should be declared in "set ExecutionPath" and the branch will be written into .root file only if it's in "module TreeWriter TreeWriter".

Could you offer the code, maybe in new version, or give me some advice?

Thank you!

The Delphes team and us are completely disjoint.
I'm not even sure what is the preferred method to contact them actually.
I do not see any method on their github repo.
They however have a ticket system here: http://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/delphes

If they update their code, this should automatically be updated if you do install Delphes
