ATLAS Physics Validation

ATLAS Physics Validation

Currently Mark Hodgkinson co-cordinates the ATLAS Physics validation group in ATLAS. This group is responsible for producing standard data and MC samples in new configurations to ensure the software output is as expected in data and MC campaigns. Previously Mark was co-cordinator of the JetETMiss Software and Validation Group between October 2014 and October 2015, and coordinated offline software validation activities for many years prior to that, with a strong emphasis on the reconstruction side, within ATLAS. An overview of these activities is described in this CHEP 2012 paper. Davide Costanzo also was the offline Software Validaiton coordinator, prior to Mark, for several years.
