Implementations of come collider physics observables. Some observables require the FastJet Python interface to be importable; if it's not, no warnings or errors will be issued, the observables will simply not be included in this module.


D2

Ratio of EFPs (specifically, energy correlation functions) designed to tag two prong signals. In graphs, the formula is:

For additional information, see the original paper.

energyflow.D2(measure='hadr', beta=2, strassen=False, reg=0., kappa=1, normed=None, coords=None, check_input=True)

Since a D2 defines and holds a Measure instance, all Measure keywords are accepted.

Arguments

  • measure : {'hadr', 'hadrdot', 'hadrefm', 'ee', 'eeefm'}
    • The choice of measure. See Measures for additional info.
  • beta : float
    • The parameter $\beta$ appearing in the measure. Must be greater than zero.
  • strassen : bool
    • Whether to use matrix multiplication to speed up the evaluation. Not recommended when $\beta=2$ since EFMs are faster.
  • reg : float
    • A regularizing value to be added to the denominator in the event that it is zero. Should typically be something less than 1e-30.
  • kappa : {float, 'pf'}
    • If a number, the energy weighting parameter $\kappa$. If 'pf', use $\kappa=v-1$ where $v$ is the valency of the vertex.
  • normed : bool
    • Controls normalization of the energies in the measure.
  • coords : {'ptyphim', 'epxpypz', None}
    • Controls which coordinates are assumed for the input. See Measures for additional info.
  • check_input : bool
    • Whether to check the type of the input each time or assume the first input type.

zg

energyflow.zg(ptyphims, zcut=0.1, beta=0, R=1.0, algorithm='ca')

Groomed momentum fraction of a jet, as calculated on an array of particles in hadronic coordinates. First, the particles are converted to FastJet PseudoJets and clustered according to the specified algorithm. Second, the jet is groomed according to the specified SoftDrop parameters and the momentum fraction of the surviving pair of Pseudojets is computed. See the SoftDrop paper for a complete description of SoftDrop.

Arguments

  • ptyphims : numpy.ndarray
    • An array of particles in hadronic coordinates that will be clustered into a single jet and groomed.
  • zcut : float
    • The $z_{\rm cut}$ parameter of SoftDrop. Should be between 0 and 1.
  • beta : int or float
    • The $\beta$ parameter of SoftDrop.
  • R : float
    • The jet radius to use for the grooming. Only relevant if beta!=0.
  • algorithm : {'kt', 'ca', 'antikt'}
    • The jet algorithm to use when clustering the particles. Same as the argument of the same name of cluster.

    • The groomed momentum fraction of the given jet.

energyflow.zg_from_pj(pseudojet, zcut=0.1, beta=0, R=1.0)

Groomed momentum fraction $z_g$, as calculated on an ungroomed (but already clustered) FastJet PseudoJet object. First, the jet is groomed according to the specified SoftDrop parameters and then the momentum fraction of the surviving pair of Pseudojets is computed. See the SoftDrop paper for a complete description of SoftDrop. This version of $z_g$ is provided in addition to the above function so that a jet does not need to be reclustered if multiple grooming parameters are to be used.

Arguments

  • pseudojet : fastjet.PseudoJet
    • A FastJet PseudoJet that has been obtained from a suitable clustering (typically Cambridge/Aachen for SoftDrop).
  • zcut : float
    • The $z_{\rm cut}$ parameter of SoftDrop. Should be between 0 and 1.
  • beta : int or float
    • The $\beta$ parameter of SoftDrop.
  • R : float
    • The jet radius to use for the grooming. Only relevant if beta!=0.

Returns

  • float
    • The groomed momentum fraction of the given jet.
