#955 new How to

"Prong" dependent tau ID efficiency

Reported by: dario far Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Delphes code Version: Delphes 3
Keywords: Cc:


I would like to implement a different tau ID working point for each hadronic tau prong. e.g. 40% efficiency for 1-prong candidates and 60% for 3-prong candidates. Is it possible to modify the tau tagging module to include this?
I was thinking of including a dependence for the efficiency formula on the number of tracks of the candidate hadronic tau but I don't know where or if this variable is stored, and I am not "fluent" enough in Delphes to do this without guidance. I noticed the module TrackCountingBTagging for the b-tag module but didin't find any for taus. Does tau tagging also use this module? Any suggestions?

Thank you!

You can already do this with TrackCountingTauTagging module, have a look at the ATLAS card.

I had an older version of Delphes! That is exactly what I need. Thanks!
