Reconstruction and identification of $τ$ lepton decays to hadrons and ν$_τ$ at CMS


CMS Collaboration; Canelli, F; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P; et al (2016). Reconstruction and identification of $τ$ lepton decays to hadrons and ν$_τ$ at CMS. Journal of Instrumentation, 11(1):P01019.

Abstract

This paper describes the algorithms used by the CMS experiment to reconstruct and identify $τ$ → hadrons + ν$_τ$ decays during Run 1 of the LHC. The performance of the algorithms is studied in proton-proton collisions recorded at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb$^{−1}$. The algorithms achieve an identification efficiency of 50–60%, with misidentification rates for quark and gluon jets, electrons, and muons between per mille and per cent levels.
