Data and Event Simulations

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In this section, the data and the simulation samples used in this analysis are described. To understand the observed data and search for new phenomena the comparison between data and simulation is essential. In the second part, the general methodology of the simulation is presented.
