Hi,
This will be a long message.
I am trying to run simulation and analysis for the channel ppbar>D0D0bar>Kpi+K+pi
I want to run this with no PID at all.
I am running this, and without using PID, i fill my list with 4 candidates(minus1, plus1, minus2, plus2) since I have 4 charged tracks.
I use the "KaonAllMinus", "PionAllPlus", "KaonAllPlus", "PionAllMinus" for my 4 candidates.
Now the problem I have is the following: I am running 35000 events with EvtGen. The possible combinations for the D0 without PID should be: Kpi+(the correct one) and K+pi(the wrong one). There must not be other combinations since in the plot attached (Firstplot) you will see that there is a cut on the reconstructed mass at the limit of one pion and one kaon, thus no pipi+ and subsequently KK+ are tried. In this way, I should get around 70000 (2 times the Kpi combinations) D0 mesons. What I get is 140000 events. So there is a double counting somewhere.
Now, I have also tried the same with "AllMinus", "AllPlus", "AllPlus", "AllMinus" for the minus1, plus1, plus2, minus2 candidates. There I would expect to have 4 times the combinations since besides the Kpi+ and the K+pi now I also have pipi+ and kk+..I can see that since the lower limit now is at the two pion masses and the number or reconstructed D0 is 4x35000 events.(Secondplot)
I have attached both plots and my analysis macro too.
Do you have any idea whether there is something wrong or whether I am doing something wrong?
Thank you in advance.
Alex
