From raw data to published experimental results at the LHC


The collider experiments at the LHC are among the most complex particle detectors ever built and operated. Likewise, the process of analysing the raw data collected by these experiments to publish results on fundamental interactions of elementary particles is as complex as the detectors themselves. It required algorithm development for more than a decade. This talk gives a basic overview of the most important aspects of data reconstruction, calibration and analysis necessary for the study of fundamental interactions, taking as example the process of analysing raw data collected by the CMS experiment and covering state of the art techniques.
