      Speaker: Tom Eichlersmith (UMN)
      • tanLambda of conv vtx to separate bkgd from signal?
        • invM?
        • Opening angle at vertex
        • delta(tanLambda)
        • z0/tanLambda
        • Point to target
      • Need to quantify number of signal events so that we can see if S/sqrt(B) is high enough to do a selection.
        • Just use a "selection" z cut to get a S and then we can compare that to B with the same selection.
      • We want "a number" to make a decision
      • How to select against the background? What selections could reduce background without reducing the signal efficiency further?
    • 9:45 AM 10:05 AM
