For tracking devices and calorimeters, the conflicting trends toward higher luminosity and improved background rejection have prompted the use of a hierarchical, multilevel trigger logic: the upper levels are usually devoted to 'physical' background rejection and event flagging, as opposed to the lower level logic, mostly dealing with 'dull' background at high rate. For the higher trigger levels, depending on the different machine and detector configurations, it is sometimes possible to design… CONTINUE READING
