This is an example of the C++ code (and its configuration in Python) needed to extract information from CMS heavy-ion data and write them to a derived dataset. An example analysis routine is provided to illustrate how to analyse data in this derived output file. These instructions are valid to work with 2010 data. Snippets of this software can be used for physics analysis.
The examples, within the code, have in-line comments to make it more understandable and to point potential users to the original information sources. It has been put together compiling the most important pieces of already-available CMSSW software.
Use this with CMS heavy-ion 2010 primary datasets
If you do not have the CERN Virtual Machine for 2010 CMS data installed, follow the instructions in step 1 at How to install a CERN Virtual Machine. Or, alternatively, install the corresponding Docker container.
To run the analysis, follow the instructions at https://github.com/cms-opendata-analyses/HiForestProducerTool/tree/2010.
