The ATLAS Collaboration has released 1/fb of collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV from the 2012 data taking period for educational purposes to the general public.
This set of real data is accompanied by matching simulated data of Standard Model processes and a selection of Beyond the Standard Model signals.
1 files. 5.6 GiB in total.
How were these data selected?
Both real and simulated data is subjected to a loose event preselection to reduce processing time by reducing the overall number of events that have to be analysed.
The preselection consists of a set of object selection criteria and a subsequent event selection acting on these preselected objects.
How can you use these data?
You can access these data through the ATLAS Virtual Machines and Software. More documentation is available at:
