Monte Carlo Study of Sensitivities of Data-Driven Correction Factors Used to Model Invisible Z+jets Events

Wojcik, George N.
2015

A truth-level study using the Pythia 8 Monte Carlo generator comparing visible leptonic Z boson decays (muons and electrons) to invisible Z decays (neutrinos). Ratios of the Z transverse momentum histograms in the visible pathway to those in the invisible pathway are generated, and the sensitivities of these ratios to QED radiation, fiducial cuts on the leptons, differing QCD tunes, differing jet ... read more
