Electron Efficiency Measurement

Electrons play an important role in many physics analyses performed with the ATLAS detector, both in Standard Model measurements and in new physics searches. The electron might also appear in the \(Z \rightarrow \tau \tau \) decay, which is discussed in Chap. 5, in the case when one of the \(\tau \) leptons decays into an electron and two neutrinos. The measurements described in this chapter are performed following the electron selection specific for the \(Z \rightarrow \tau \tau \) analysis and the results are used for the cross section measurement in this channel.
