The DESY ATLAS group is involved in the reconstruction and calibration of physics objects, which are the basic ingredients of all physics analyses. This includes the reconstruction of tracks, electrons, photons, jets and the lavour tag for jets. In addition DESY works on the simulation of the tracking detector and the infrastructure for and commissioning of event generators.
A important input for every physics analysis is the identification of objects like tracks, leptons and jets. The reconstruction of these object has to be improved continuously, the reconstruction efficiency and resolution. In addition it has to be ensure that the response in our physics simulation is similar then in data. DESY plays a leading role in many of these physics object selection and calibrations groups:
DESY is heavily involved in the maintenance of the software environment which is needed to run event generators inside the Atlas software framework Athena. IN addition we are working on the commissioning of generators and processes that these simulation can be used in physics analysis.
Desy is involved in Detector simulation as well. Here we concentrate on the silicon tracking detector for the current and future experiment (ITK) and the frozen shower parametrisation of the forward calorimeter.
