Electron and hadronic recoil calibration for the first measurement of the mass of the W boson by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider

Abstract:

This thesis presents work towards the first measurement of the mass of the W boson (mW) at ATLAS at the Large Hadron Collider using √s = 7 TeV collision data taken in 2011. The electron energy calibration is presented, including a detailed study of the linearity of the ATLAS electromagnetic calorimeter. Separately, the measurement of the W boson recoil is calibrated using Z boson events. R...
