Physics Validation

Our goal is to provide up-to-date comparison between LHC data and detector simulation toolkits. The detailed study of simulation results will allow for an in-depth improvement of the simulation code used by LHC experiments.

We focus on the validation of the simulated response of detectors to the passage of high energy particles. The goal of our effort is to establish the level of agreement between data and simulations to:

  • provide feedback to the authors of the simulation code to constantly improve the algorithms
  • provide assistance and guidance to the LHC experiments to select the best physics models for their needs
