Dear colleagues,

I would like to inform you that Elisa has found a bug in my eta_c analysis macro related to usage of vertex fitter and after correction it gives reasonable results in the sense of mass distribution.

Using PndKinVtxFitter eta_c and phi mass looks like

And for comparison using 4C kinematics fit


So in both cases mass resolution loos almost identical.

In case of 4C-fit daughter particles are not updated after the fit, i.e. it shouldn't modify the shape of mass distribution, but for vertex fit daughter particles are updated and I would expect bigger improvement/difference of at least eta_c mass, but it's not the case.

And I didn't look yet how position of the vertex is reconstructed, i.e. (reconstructed - MonteCarlo).

But in principle now both fitters could be used in analysis.
