Two or more clusters/event. 2.) Minimum three (3) (PbWO4 or lead glass) detectors to define a cluster. 3.) 50 MeV or greater central (PbWO4 or lead glass) crystal detector energy in cluster. 4.) 10 MeV or greater minimum deposited energy in (PbWO4 or lead glass) detector. 5.) Max cluster energy 8 GeV. 6.) gg invariant mass greater than 0.085 GeV in at least one of the cluster pairs.7.) Elasticity (cluster pair energy sum/tagger energy) greater than 0.70.8.) Cluster energy greater than 0.5 GeV.9.) Cluster X or Y position must be greater than 4.1 cm.10.) Cluster pair energy sum between 3.5 and 6.5 GeV -- additional software cut not imposed on the skim, but imposed later:11.) Timing cut of -15 ns to +5ns.pi0gains used as calibration

  • Event selectionEliminate Tagger and HyCal combinatoricsLikelihood Event entries have invariant mass, elasticity, and timingWhich entry to choose in a mutli-entry event?Which is "most likely"?Fit invariant mass, elasticity, timing signal and backgroundFitted signal lineshape as probability density function (PDF)Evaluate the PDF for each parameter for each entry.Three individual likelihoods. PDFInvariant mass, PDFElasticity, PDFTimingTotal likelihood = PDFInvariant mass PDFElasticity PDFTiming

    Entry with highest total likelihood "wins".

  • Misidentification any systematics?No. MisID is random, and event selection tends to pick smaller production angle pions.

  • Systematic error sources?

    Extracted yields over the entire pion angle range must be stable as these parameters are varied.
