We discuss the physics potential and the experimental challenges of an upgraded LHC running at an instantaneous luminosity of 1035 cm-2s-1. The detector R&D needed to operate ATLAS and CMS in a very high radiation environment and the expected detector performance are discussed. A few examples of the increased physics potential are given, ranging from precise measurements within the Standard Model (in particular in the Higgs sector) to the discovery reach for several New Physics processes.
To cope with the 40 MHz event production rate of LHC, the trigger of the ATLAS experiment selects events in three sequential steps of increasing complexity and accuracy whose final results are close to the offline reconstruction. The Level-1, implemented with custom hardware, identifies physics objects within Regions of Interests and operates with a first reduction of the event rate to 75 kHz. The higher trigger levels, Level-2 and Level-3, provide a software based event selection which further reduces the event rate to about 100 Hz. This paper presents the algorithm (/spl mu/Fast) employed at Level-2 to confirm the muon candidates flagged by the Level-1. /spl mu/Fast identifies hits of muon tracks inside the barrel region of the Muon Spectrometer and provides a precise measurement of the muon momentum at the production vertex. The alg...
These proceedings collect the presentations given at the first three meetings of the INFN "Workshop on Monte Carlo's, Physics and Simulations at the LHC", held at the Frascati National Laboratories in 2006. The first part of these proceedings contains pedagogical introductions to several basic topics of both theoretical and experimental high pT LHC physics. The second part collects more specialised presentations.
The ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will face the challenge of efficiently selecting interesting candidate events in pp collisions at 14 TeV center of mass energy, while rejecting the enormous number of background events, stemming from an interaction rate of up to 10/sup 9/ Hz. The Level1 trigger will reduce this rate to around /spl Oscr/(100kHz). Subsequently, the high level trigger (HLT), which is comprised of the Second Level trigger and the Event Filter, will need to reduce this rate further by a factor of /spl Oscr/(10/sup 3/). The HLT selection is software based and will be implemented on commercial CPUs using a common framework built on the standard ATLAS object oriented software architecture. In this paper an overview of the current implementation of the selection for electrons and photons in the HLT is give...
