Monte Carlo simulation of pile-up is controlled by the code and configuration files of the package SimGeneral/MixingModule. An input distribution is specified for each set of production samples which is supposed to represent the distribution of the mean number of interactions seen during data-taking. Below you can find more information on how the simulation proceeds:
