The Jet Energy Scale Group

Group Leader: V.Daniel Elvira

Meeting Time: we used to meet every week in the past. Now we handle Run I energy
scale issues in the KT group meetings and individual discussions.
The aim of the group was to develop a method to perform the absolute jet energy calibration to a high degree of accuracy for Run I (1992-1995). It was primarily based on physics principles using collider data, given the lack of a central tracking magnetic device in the Run I D0 detector. The group has produced a number of publications, conference proceedings and notes.

Minutes of the weekly meetings (1996-1997) are available. You can also read the
minutes of the KT jet meetings for KT information. A graphic description of the energy scale analysis is available at the bottom of this page.
