Revision as of 11:11, 30 June 2021

These cuts also apply to 2018 and 2019 GlueX data

PreSelect Cuts

  • For a given DChargedTrack, at least one hypothesis must have a hit in either: BCAL/FCAL/TOF/SC.
  • For a given DNeutralShower, it must at least have a shower energy of 100 MeV/c.
  • For neutral showers in the BCAL, they must have hits in at least 2 cells.

Timing Cuts

  • Timing cuts are applied only on the system with the best timing information available, in the order: BCAL/TOF/FCAL/SC. In other words, if a track has a hit in the TOF, then no cut is applied on the FCAL or SC time.
  • Note that some hypotheses may not have a hit in any system and thus survive all of these cuts.
  • Also, even if the SC is the best-available detector, no cut is placed on the timing if the track has been matched to more than one SC hit, UNLESS it's the only track in the combo.
    • This is because the SC timing is not really good enough for PID over such a short flight distance, so the cut is primarily used to reject tracks from other beam bunches or ghost tracks.
  • Also, all kaons are cut that:
    • Do not have a hit in one of these timing detectors, AND
    • Do not have enough hits in the CDC to compute dE/dx
    • This is because their background is huge already, without letting these combos through.
  • Cuts are re-placed after the kinematic fit, using updated momentum and vertex information.
  • If a kinfit is not performed, then the timing cut at detached vertices is looser than otherwise: +/- 2ns WIDER for charged tracks, ~0.05ns for FCAL photons, ~0.5ns for BCAL photons

Kinematic Fit

  • If a kinematic fit has been performed, it must have converged.

Fiducial Cuts

  • Implemented in August 2019, first used in Analysis Launch 2017-01 ver31, 2018-08 ver08, and 2018-08 ver02
  • Maximum Z in BCal: 393.0cm
  • Maximum R in FCal: 105.5cm
  • Block innermost 16 FCal channels around the beam hole
