Event-by-Event Estimate of Muon Energy Loss in ATLAS

The ATLAS Muon Spectrometer is designed to provide efficient and precise stand-alone momentum measurement for muons of momentum up to O(1 TeV/c). The fluctuations of the muon energy loss in the material upstream of the Muon Spectrometer could deteriorate the physics performance, which requires the momentum to be determined at the interaction point. A method… CONTINUE READING
