Trigger and Object Reconstruction

For this analysis dedicated high level trigger (HLT) paths based on particle-flow jets (PFJets, see Sect. 4.3.1) have been developed. The trigger decision for these paths is made in stages, beginning with the hardware based level 1 (L1) trigger and ending with the software based HLT. I developed the HLT trigger paths myself, with initial planning and testing being made in 2014, changes for first data taking in 2015 and final adjustments throughout the 2016 data taking period.
