"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.
