Walkthrough: ATLAS simulation using the CSC scripts

If you follow the AthenaKlientDriftWalkThrough you can run the examples in this guide.

Various file types of are mentioned in this text:

Ntuple
flat ntuples (usable directly in =root=)
RDO Raw Data Object
What comes out of the simulation
ESD Event Summary Data
Reconstructed RDO file, used to make AOD and for
AOD Analysis Object Data
Summary of an 'ESD file
DPD Derived Physics Data
Analysis specific processed AOD

In general the files are root files, but not directly usable in root.

Event generation

To generate events use the script csc_evgen_trf.py that generates events for a physics process defined in one of the jobOptions files located in $INSTALL/AtlasOffline/13.0.40/Generators/EvgenJobOptions/share. The script takes the following arguments

  1. runNumber (int)
    • each run number corresponds to one physics process
  2. firstEvent (int)
    • number of the first event in the output data file
  3. maxEvents (int)
    • Maximum number of events to process
  4. randomSeed (int)
    • random seed for physics generators
  5. jobConfig (list)
    • jobOptions fragment containing the physics and the configuration settings
  6. outputEvgenFile (str)
    • Output file that contains generated events
  7. [ histogramFile ] (str) default='NONE'
    • Output file that contains histograms.
  8. [ ntupleFile ] (str) default='NONE'
    • Output file that contains ntuples.
  9. [ inputGeneratorFile ] (str) default='NONE'
    • Input file used by the particle generator to generate events

The following call generates a run with 5000 events for the process Z->tau,tau and will save the file 005188.evgen.pool.root.

csc_evgen_trf.py\
005188 1 5000 1231243\
'CSC.005188.A3_Ztautau_filter.py'\
'005188.evgen.pool.root'

Note that the run-number must match the =jobOptions= file given.

Atlfast AOD generation

The script csc_atlfast_trf.py truns Atlfast and produces AODs directly from the generated events. It takes the following arguments

  1. inputEvgenFile (list)
    • Input file that contains generated events
  2. outputAODFile (str)
    • Output file that contains AODs
  3. ntupleFile (str)
    • Output file that contains ntuples.
  4. maxEvents (int)
    • Maximum number of events to process
  5. skipEvents (int)
    • Number of events to skip

To run on the file with generated events from the previous section run

csc_atlfast_trf.py\
'005188.evgen.pool.root'\
'005188.atlfast.aod.pool.root'\
'005188.atlfast.nt.root'\
-1 0

The -1 includes all events in the input file

Script that makes several runs of atlfast aod

The following bash script generates nruns of nevts events of the type specified in 'jobops.

nruns=10
nevts="10000"
run="005188"
jobops=CSC.005188.A3_Ztautau_filter.py
for (( i=0; i<nruns; ++i));
do
evgen=${nevts}.${i}.${run}.evgen.pool.root
atlfast_aod=`echo ${evgen} | sed 's,evgen,atlfast.aod,'`
atlfast_nt=`echo ${evgen} | sed 's,evgen,atlfast.nt,'`
csc_evgen_trf.py ${run} 1 ${nevts} ${RANDOM} ${jobops} ${evgen}
csc_atlfast_trf.py ${evgen} ${atlfast_aod} ${atlfast_nt} -1 0
done

Making ESDs AODs using full ATLAS simulation

In these examples use the geometry definition ATLAS-CSC-01-02-00 and the DEFAULT trigger. Remember that the Geant4 step is very slow, run in a few events only until you know what you are doing.

GEANT4 simulation and digitization

The script csc_simul_trf.py runs the GEANT4 and digitization on the generated events and produces a HITS and a RDO file. It has the following options

  1. inputEvgenFile (list)
    • Input file that contains generated events
  2. outputHitsFile (str)
    • Output file that contains hits
  3. outputRDOFile (str)
    • Output file that contains RDO's
  4. maxEvents (int)
    • Maximum number of events to process
  5. skipEvents (int)
    • Number of events to skip
  6. randomSeed (int)
    • random seed for simulation
  7. geometryVersion (str)
    • Geometry Version
  8. digiSeedOffset1 (int)
    • random seed offset for digitization
  9. digiSeedOffset2 (int)
    • random seed offset for digitization
  10. [ physicsList ] (str) default='QGSP_EMV'
    • physics list to be used
  11. [ jobConfig ] (list) default='NONE'
    • Joboptions file with user settings, in particular the configuration settings. Default packages: .,SimuJobTransforms,PyJobTransforms
  12. [ DBRelease ] (str) default='NONE'
    • Tarball containing the DBRelease to use
  13. [ triggerConfig ] (str) default='DEFAULT'
    • Configuration string to use for =TrigT1= and =HLT=. Set to 'NONE' to switch off trigger, and set to 'DEFAULT' to use the default of the used release.

Run the full detector simulation:

csc_simul_trf.py\
'005188.evgen.pool.root'\
'005188.hits.pool.root'\
'005188.rdo.pool.root'\
-1 0 123\
'ATLAS-CSC-01-02-00'\

'005188.rdo.ntuple.pool.root'\
-1 0\
