Simulated pile-up event dataset MinBias_TuneZ2star_8TeV-pythia6 in GEN-SIM format. Events were sampled from this dataset and added to simulated data to make them comparable with the 2012 collision data, see the guide to pile-up simulation.
Global Tag: START50_V13::All
How were these data validated?
The generation and simulation of simulated Monte Carlo data has been validated through general CMS validation procedures.
How can you use these data?
These data are needed to add pile-up events if you generate and simulate new Monte Carlo data. See the instructions for Monte Carlo generation in the guide to event production. You can access these data through the CMS Virtual Machine. See the instructions for setting up the Virtual Machine and getting started in
