BABAR is a high energy physics experiment at the asymmetric electron-positron collider PEP-II at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). It aims to measure CP violation in B-meson decays. BABAR is one of originally three experiments that were built for this purpose. The other experiments are BELLE at KEK in Japan and CLEO at CSER in Connel, USA. Contact: Prof. Dr. H. Lacker,
BaBar Experiment

BABAR is a high energy physics experiment at the asymmetric electron-positron collider PEP-II at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). Its aim is to measure CP violation in B-meson decays and is related to the question of the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe. BABAR is one of originally three experiments that were built for this purpose. The other experiments are BELLE at KEK in Japan and CLEO at CSER in Connel, USA.

Čerenkov Telescope Array The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will be the first ground based Cherenkov telescope system, that will function as an observatory.



CKMfitter is a software-package for analysing the constraints on the CKM-matrix parameters using experimental data.

Professor represents a systematic approach to the subject of Monte Carlo event generator tuning. The idea is to interpolate the generator response under parameter changes and to fit this approxmiation to high precision data. It is of universal character, i.e applicable to any generator that has an interface to the standard HepMC event record. So far, fortran Pythia has been the focus of our work. Our strategy was to consecutively tune distinct generator aspects one after another. First, we tuned the flavour parameters to LEP-data (multiplicities of identified hadrons + some OPAL spectra). The second stage was to tune fragmentation parameters to general event shape observables (Thrust, etc.) measured by LEP. Recently, we successfully tuned Pythias modeling of the 'Underlying event' (multiple interactions, initial state radiation, beam-beam remnants, colour reconnection) to TEVATRON data (CDF and D0). In general, the Professor tunings yield impressive results compared to both, the quality of and the time spent to achieve the default tunings. The Professor tunings of fortran Pythia have found there way into the release of version 6.4.20, the last release ever.
