ATLAS: analysing the data

With first data only a few months away, much work has gone into the tools and methodology that will be used to analyze that data. The basic format of the analysis object data (AOD) has been fixed. This format can be analyzed from within the ATLAS software framework (Athena) either interactively via python or using compiled C++.

PROFILE

“I feel like I have lots
in common with my

their children from kindergarten; I
have to run home for Vespers,”
says Katarina Pajchel, both a
graduate student on ATLAS and a
nun of the Dominican Order.
