ILD optimization

This page is a summary of my 2nd PhD thesis topic, the lifetime reconstruction of long-lived neutralinos. It summarises some general software issues as well as the performance interplay of the photon reconstruction algorithm and the ILD detector concept. Furthermore, it shows how I reconstructed the neutralino mass and lifetime.

The aim of this paged is to document my work, so that a) I do not forget how things worked and b) future students that (possibly) continue my studies don't have to start from scratch.

The page is organised as follows:
