Detailed Description

Example of analysis class for the H1 data using code generated by MakeProxy.

This file uses 4 large data sets from the H1 collaboration at DESY Hamburg. One can access these data sets (277 MBytes) from the standard Root web site at: ftp:///root.cern.ch/root/h1analysis The Physics plots below generated by this example cannot be produced when using smaller data sets.

There are several ways to analyze data stored in a Root Tree

  • Using TTree::Draw: This is very convenient and efficient for small tasks. A TTree::Draw call produces one histogram at the time. The histogram is automatically generated. The selection expression may be specified in the command line.
  • Using the TTreeViewer: This is a graphical interface to TTree::Draw with the same functionality.
  • Using the code generated by TTree::MakeClass: In this case, the user creates an instance of the analysis class. They have the control over the event loop and he can generate an unlimited number of histograms.
  • Using the code generated by TTree::MakeSelector. Like for the code generated by TTree::MakeClass, the user can do complex analysis. However, they cannot control the event loop. The event loop is controlled by TTree::Process called by the user. This solution is illustrated by the current code. The advantage of this method is that it can be run in a parallel environment using PROOF (the Parallel Root Facility).

A chain of 4 files (originally converted from PAW ntuples) is used to illustrate the various ways to loop on Root data sets. Each data set contains a Root Tree named "h42"

h1analysProxy.C can be used either via TTree::Draw:

h42->Draw("h1analysisProxy.C");

or it can be used directly with TTree::MakeProxy, for example to generate a shared library. TTree::MakeProxy will generate a TSelector skeleton that include h1analysProxy.C:

h42->MakeProxy("h1sel","h1analysisProxy.C");

This produces one file: h1sel.h which does a #include "h1analysProxy.C" The h1sel class is derived from the Root class TSelector and can then be used as:

h42->Process("h1sel.h+");

The following members functions are called by the TTree::Process functions.

  • h1analysProxy_Begin(): Called every time a loop on the tree starts. a convenient place to create your histograms.
  • h1analysProxy_Notify(): This function is called at the first entry of a new Tree in a chain.
  • h1analysProxy_Process(): called to analyze each entry.
  • h1analysProxy_Terminate(): called at the end of a loop on a TTree. a convenient place to draw/fit your histograms.

To use this file, try the following session

Root > gROOT->Time(); ///will show RT & CPU time per command

Case A: Create a TChain with the 4 H1 data files

The chain can be created by executed the short macro h1chain.C below:

{
TChain chain("h42");
chain.Add("$H1/dstarmb.root"); /// 21330730 bytes 21920 events
chain.Add("$H1/dstarp1a.root"); /// 71464503 bytes 73243 events
chain.Add("$H1/dstarp1b.root"); /// 83827959 bytes 85597 events
chain.Add("$H1/dstarp2.root"); /// 100675234 bytes 103053 events
///where $H1 is a system symbol pointing to the H1 data directory.
}

### Case B: Loop on all events

Root > chain.Draw("h1analysisProxy.C")

Case C: Same as B, but in addition fill the event list with selected entries.

The event list is saved to a file "elist.root" by the Terminate function. To see the list of selected events, you can do elist->Print("all"). The selection function has selected 7525 events out of the 283813 events in the chain of files. (2.65 per cent)

Root > chain.Draw("h1analysisProxy.C","","fillList")

Case D: Process only entries in the event list

The event list is read from the file in elist.root generated by step C

Root > chain.Draw("h1analysisProxy.C","","useList")

The commands executed with the 3 different methods B,C and D produce two canvases shown below: begin_html the Dstar plot end_html begin_html the Tau D0 plot end_html
