Title Missing Transverse Energy Performance with the CMS Detector.
Publication Date Jul 2011
Media Count 4p
Personal Author F. Lacroix
Abstract The results of comprehensive studies of missing transverse energy as measured by the CMS detector in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV are presented. Three missing transverse energy reconstruction algorithms are deployed for various physics analyses. The scale and resolution for missing transverse energy are validated using vector boson and dijet events, and severe mismeasurements due to the detector are studied. We also parametrize the effects of multiple pp interactions within the same bunch crossings on the scale and resolution. A tool, called missing transverse energy significance, based on particle resolutions in each event is also presented.
