Conor Fitzpatrick: More with Less: Precision physics with the LHCb Upgrade Trigger

Friday, 18 October 2019 from to (Europe/London)
at Schuster ( 54-6-6.40 - Niels Bohr Common Room )
Description
LHCb has made several world-first and world-best measurements using beauty- and charm- hadron decays with the LHC Run 1 and Run 2 datasets. It is undertaking a major upgrade in preparation for LHC Run 3, when it will operate at five times the luminosity, entering the era of MHz signals. How will LHCb process, store, and analyse this enormous data rate? In this seminar I will describe the upgraded LHCb trigger and some of the physics it will enable as the first collider experiment to read-out and trigger exclusively in software at the full LHC collision rate.
