From Belle to Belle II

During this thesis, the full \(\Upsilon (4\text {S})\) dataset of the Belle experiment and large amounts of the available Monte Carlo data were converted into the new data-format used by Belle II. Therefore, it is possible to evaluate the reliability and performance of the newly developed analysis methods, in particular data-driven techniques, before a comparable dataset from the Belle II experiment is available.
