Deep generative models parametrised by neural networks have recently started to provide accurate results in modeling natural images. In particular, generative adversarial networks provide an unsupervised solution to this problem. In this work, we apply this kind of technique to the simulation of particle detector response to hadronic jets. We show that deep neural networks can achieve high fidelity in this task, while attaining a speed increase of several orders of magnitude with respect to… Expand
Conditional Wasserstein Generative Adversarial Networks for Fast Detector Simulation
TLDR
This work investigates the use of conditional Wasserstein Generative Adversarial Networks to simulate both hadronization and the detector response to jets, and demonstrates that the model produces accurate conditional reconstructed jet transverse momentum (pT) distributions over a wide range of pT for the input parton jet.
