Use of Taus in ATLAS

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The total production rate for taus at a hadron collider is not a useful quantity. Taus must have significant transverse momentum (p{sub T}) in order to be observable. Leptonic decays of taus will yield isolated electrons or muons that can be detected but these can also be directly produced so discriminating their origin can be difficult. Hadronic decays of taus result in jets that must be distinguished from jets arising from QCD processes using the particle multiplicity and invariant mass. At the LHC, new particles can be expected that decay to final states involving taus. Examples are given from simulations ... continued below
