1 Charm in AuAu200 with Silicon Run-7 (2007) BNL, KENT, NANTESBNL, March Intro X-section work Flow work

2 When Yuri and I proposed the ‘swan song’ for Silicon Run-7 AuAu200, we estimated a significance of sigma. Silicon did not behave as expected but we still have a 10 sigma signal sum for near mbias. It would be nice if we get (at least) one Silicon publication

3 1 st Production 35 Million Events (~60 Millions full/raw in 2007) Single step Background subtraction Need to study systematics of Background (++--, rot, mixed) Significance should allow for smaller errors in x-sections/flow. D0+D0bar

4 4 Invariant mass of D 0 and D 0 bar separately Ratio of D 0 bar/D 0 = /-.19(stat.) Uncorrected raw yield Au+Au at  s=200GeV Uncorrected raw yield Au+Au at  s=200GeV STAR PRELIMINARY Compatible with vanishing  B (consistency check)

Rev. Lett (2003) S. Baumgart, arXiv:nucl-ex/ Y. Zhang, arXiv:nucl-ex/ STAR There are still unresolved discrepancies between STAR and PHENIX

7 We need, basically, two things: A handle on centrality (usually done via gRefMult) A p T spectrum, normalized and corrected

8 Au+Au data set 3 rd production – Summary of changes  With D 0 and D 0 -bar information saved, plus ++,-- pairs  Calculation of v2 (flow) (save Event plane, D0 phi angle).  Select only Triggered Events (Pile-up events are removed).  Tracks with SiHits>1 are selected  gRefMult properly calculated/saved  Radius of Silicon Hits added to the tuple.  dEdx cut was modified: |n σ K |<2.5 and |n σ π |< 2.5  Relaxed the cut on track pseudorapidity to|η|<1.2 and added a cut on rapidity of D0 (|Rapidity|<1).

9 Centrality definition in two Productions 1 st Production scaled by 1/N 2 3 rd Production Some ‘gRefMult’ was saved in 1 st prod in each D0 candidate (same Ttree) Assuming background scaling ~N 2 it can be taken out and compared to 3 rd production one

10 3 rd Prod. 1 st Prod. Scaling factor = % 20%

11 1 st Prod. 10% 20% Translation between 1 st – 3 rd prod can be done (till 3 rd done!) it breaks for very peripheral event

12 MC Glauber 3 rd Production 3 rd /Glauber ‘agree’ with some scaling Anthony’s recipe can be applied (next page)

13 The blue line in the right panel is a simple power-law parameterization with the following form: Anthony’s page

15 D0 - p T

16 D0 p T is done by subtracting from central mass peak (signal) the normalized sum of the two side bands (background)

17 1 st Production

18 1/N EVENTS 1/p T dN/dp T p T (GeV/c) Uncorrected p T spectra for D0+D0bar in |y|<1 We have the embedding to do corrections
