Track-Based Muon System Alignment at CMS
MetadataShow full item record
Track-Based Alignment of the CMS Muon System - Muon detection and reconstruction at the CMS experiment relies upon synchronized alignment between the Muon System and the Tracker System. Misalignment of these two systems will invalidate any new possible particle discoveries at the LHC. A set of algorithms have been created that detect misalignments as small as 300 μm and adjust collision data based upon the misalignment. This alignment process is fundamental to the functioning of the CMS experiment at the LHC. Therefore, this paper will serve as an analysis of Track-Based Muon Alignment and will help document the effective union between advanced computer science and physics.
