Abstract

A second possibility to reduce uncertainties caused by systematic effects consists in performing shape comparisons only. In this case the measured and the predicted distributions are normalised to the integral over the whole or a part of the investigated phase space. Luminosity uncertainties are irrelevant in this case and JEC, JER, QCD scale, or PDF effects cancel at least partially.
