High Energy Physics Seminars

ics High Energy
Wednesday, February 5, 2003
3:00 PM
Physics Building, Room 204
Note special time.
Prof. Robert Hirosky [Host: Brad Cox]
"Panning for Gold (or Finding your physics in a torrent of data)"
Interesting physics interactions occur copiously at high energy hadron colliders. However, these events are often swamped by background interactions with rates many orders of magnitude greater. Further, bandwidth and storage constraints require O(10^5-10^6) or greater real time data rejection for collecting data samples. This talk will review the 'Trigger' or real time data selection strategies used in the D-Zero experiment at Fermilab and review the "golden" physics channels sought in the Run 2 collider program.
